Teaser Tuesday - 16 March

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!
As things stand the Persickes are somewhat compromised. They won't suffer any consequences, but they'll be the subject of gossip within the Party. They'll lose a little of their reputation for reliability.
From our book group's book of the month - Hans Fallada's Alone in Berlin (aka Every Man Dies Alone). A story of ordinary people under the 3rd Reich and the resistance of an isolated couple. It's a long read - apparently it was written in a month. Here's the review from the Independent, the Guardian was less keen.
