Teaser Tuesday - 8 Dec



Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
After the frivolity of last week's 'boating for beginners' extract, here is something very dark:
However our first impressions of the Germans were most reassuring. The officers were billeted in private houses, even in the homes of Jews.
Elie Wiesel's Night, the horrifying story of Wiesel's being robbed of his teenage years, his family and his faith in Auschwitz.
This is my third read of this deeply uncomfortable book, I wasn't aware when I started reading it yesterday that tomorrow, (according to Wikipedia which cites this Hungarian article - no I don't speak the language!) Wiesel returns to Hungary for the first time since 1944.

That is definitely not a frivolous book. Good selection for a teaser though.

Here's my teaser. It's about the history of the Triads and posted on my brand new website!

I have never read this, must give it a try.

I don't know if you know this but Janet Fife is leaving Upton Priory. Our numbers have been falling for a while and I think we may close down before too long ( don't know if I am being too pessimistic here.) Anyhow, I have been looking around at some other Churches and thinking about a visit to see what All Saints is like, if you'd be alright with that?

Sue, As I say it is not an easy read but worth it. I'll be pleased to see you if you look around at All Saints, I hope you are too pessimistic though!

Yes, I also hope I am being too pessimistic, but just thinking ahead.
