TEASER TUESDAYS — MARCH 23

This meme is hosted by Miz B, of  Should Be Reading.

Here’s how it works:

  • 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 mine:

Eight weeks might not sound like very long, but when you’re spending much of that talking to or sitting alone with the same person—we essentially learned to forget about Isaac—often engaged in an extraordinarily monotonous activity, your sense of time begins to distort, much as I imagine it does in prison.  No matter how hard we tried to stay on point, we couldn’t talk only about the case.  p. 217

This is an excerpt from The Genius, by Jesse Kellerman.

A blurb from Amazon reveals:

A young art dealer named Ethan Muller manages to get hold of a treasure trove of original art after the artist, an unknown shut-in named Victor Cracke, disappears. The first sign of trouble crops up when a retired cop recognizes one of the figures as being a boy who died some 40 years earlier. Ethan’s life spirals out of control from there. Before the story is over, Ethan will learn to question everything about his “wonderful” discovery–as well as his own family’s destiny.

What tidbits can you share this week?  Hope you’ll stop by and leave your links.

  1. Interesting teaser- waitng for something seems endless but then something good – the time flys by. It’s all perception I guess. Have a great week and happy reading! Here’s my teaser

  2. Without the book description, my guess would be that three people (assembly line workers, maybe?) are forced to work together on a common task. Two have grown closer while ignoring the annoyingly silent third person.

    With book description, a lawyer and his client maybe?
    Can you tell I’m not familiar with the book or author?

Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
