Teaser Tuesday - 7 December



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!
He sent humorous e-mails to Andy Warshaw, his tireless friend in Lincoln's Inn; he made sure he didn't subscribe to the Eustace Hutton view, that the modern world, with its short-termist, ignorant politicians was something to be mocked. He was careful not to slip into the Inner Temple way of talking, with its clubbish phrases, mispronounced Latin tags and unvoiced conviction that its members were cleverer than the rest of the world.
This month's book group book - acquired last night. Sebastian Faulks' A Week in December at the moment it feels a little too determinedly up to the minute - but early days yet! We shall see! Appropriate for the season but I think it wil take a little longer than a week to read it.
I still need to finish Faulk's Charlotte Gray which I started months back - it got swamped by other things and I need to get back to it!

Great teaser, love the very descriptive language. I might have to add this book to my own stack.

I'm doing the teaser hop... no one has stopped by my blog yet so I pulled out my best walking gown and lovely gold slippers to stroll along the path to knock on some blog doors and stop for a chat and spot of tea.

I really like your teaser :) Yes, the description is wonderful.
