Teaser Tuesday - 19 Jan



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!
It was melodrama so overdone that he and Crake would have laughed their heads off at it, if they'd been fourteen and watching it on DVD.
First came the waiting. He sat in a chair in his office, told himself to calm down. The old wordlists were whipping through his head: fungible, pullulate, pistic, cerements, trull.
I just finished Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake yesterday, so I thought I'd leave a final extract. I quoted an section in last week's teaser. I was tempted to stop as instructed, after the second sentence but didn't feel that cruel!! As I twittered, I keep seeing visions of cybermen whenever Atwood mentions an airlock but that's probably a Dr Who fetish on my part.

LOL... I would need a dictionary for that book. Now, I am going to have to look up those words, my curiousity won't let me ignore them now.

Nice teaser!

Here's Mine: Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband
