Teaser Tuesday - 5 April

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!
Last 100 pages now of last week's book, intentionally choosing a different style!
Do wonder if my brother liked boys as well as girls too, or if my vice is mine alone. Wonder if he died celibate. Think of those troopers, lying together, cowering, alive; cold, dead.
had to include that extra sentence! Or I could have chosen:
Meronym looked back anxin' diresome. Weren't no sign of our chasers yet so she swung down to the ground an' peered at the pain.
The switches in styles between sections makes a difficult read - David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas - let's see if it is rewarding!

I love "diresome" even though I don't really know what it could mean! Probably not anything good. But that's an excellent teaser!

My TT: The Book of Lost Things

You know, I read about 3/4 of Cloud Atlas and ultimately didn't think it was worth finishing. I do hope you find there's a worthwhile payoff at the end.
