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!
Here’s my teaser for this week: “I won’t deny I was disappointed. I shouldn’t have been; there was nothing unusual about the children except for their gifts; their heads were full of all the usual things, fathers mothers money food land possessions fame power God.” – p. 261, Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
This book has been sitting on my TBR shelf for quite a long while now. It’s won the Best of the Bookers and there’s a lot of praise about it. Plus I’ve never read any novels that took place in India and is considered part of the Indian sphere of literature so I thought this was the best place to start. Not to mention it’s dealing with themes that I’m currently studying for my seminar course. It’s an intriguing story so far but the narrative at times does lead my mind to wander elsewhere. Nonetheless I’m curious to see how everything plays out =)
