Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted at The Purple Booker.
Anyone can play along by doing 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!
“The destination of the journey could not be altered, only the manner in which one approached it. Whether one chose to walk erect or to be dragged complaining through the dust.
(~ Pompeii by Robert Harris, Kindle Edition, 2003)
[I like the author especially when he writes historical thrillers – his A Officer and Spy is one of my favourites, but Pompeii is quite notable, too, also because it’s well documented and you can even find Latin authors -like Plinius the Elder, who died while studying the eruption- as one of the characters. As a long-time Latinist, I can appreciate the accuracy of the geography and other details, even though the characters themselves sound -I believe intentionally -startlingly 20th century Americans.]
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays’ post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here and/or in The Purple Booker.
