TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
– Grab your current read
– Open to a random page
– Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
– BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
– Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My teaser for this week: “In the fourth month of the siege, rumour spread through the city that the Heavenly King had left with his son, and finally the inevitable revolt of the dispossessed and exhausted brought the city to the brink of surrender. Maxi pleaded, through his interpreter, that to open the gates was to allow in destruction.” – p. 431, Shanghai by David Rotenberg. I slowly started reading this book last week during a picnic. It’s a massive book—1100 pages in mass paperback—and so far it’s okay. I find it a bit confusing at the start with the back-and-forth pace between characters. I’m only getting a handle of it now, I think *blushes*
