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!
This week’s teasers:
Alone in his classroom after hours with the debate kids, no sound of other classes in session or corridor traffic, only the solitary click of the custodian’s mop on the hallway floor scrubbing from side to side, his AM talk radio coming a little nearer, a little louder with each mop swipe, Franklin often felt a peculiar kind of loneliness (really an awareness of the general isolation of a single life and the ridiculousness of most social conventions) so keenly, it made him want to laugh aloud. That or blurt weird, inappropriate things to shock the kids and get them riled.
From page 109 of Inukshuk by Gregory Spatz. This book is released today, but I received my advance copy from LibraryThing yesterday. I have barely started it, so I still haven’t reached this point yet or made my mind up about the book. When I saw it among the choices last month and read about the parallel story of the ill-fated Franklin expedition going through the story I figured it might be one I would enjoy. Time will tell and hopefully I’ll have a review up by the weekend.
