Teaser Tuesday

Posted on: December 21, 2010

teasertuesdays31 Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • 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 is my Teaser!  This is from p. 45 of John le Carré’s book Absolute Friends:

His one spiritual ally is an outcast like himself:  a dignified, ageless, diffident, white-haired refugee in rimless spectacles and a shabby suit who teaches German Extra Studies and cello and lives alone in a redbrick bedsitter on the Bristol Road roundabout.  His name is Mr. Mallory.

Please leave a comment with your thoughts, and a link to your teaser so that I can read yours as well!

Ooh I have read a John Le Carre before! Great teaser thanks!

Good teaser. It reminds me that I have one of his books on my shelf and I need to read it soon

Interesting. A description of the character by saying someone else is like him spiritually.

Very interesting, haven’t heard anything about this book . Hope your enjoying it.
