Teaser Tuesday

The rules:

  • 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!
I'm going to give you a few sentences from an advance reader copy of China Mieville's latest, The City and The City:

The powers of the Breach are almost limitless. Frightening. What does limit Breach is solely that those powers are highly circumstantially specific. The insistence that those circumstances be rigorously policed is a necessary precaution for the cities.

I can't wait to share my review of this one with you all- I can't wait to finish reading it! It's a brainy page-turner with real oomph. Love it!

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted at ShouldBeReading.wordpress.com.

Sounds brainy all right! Glad to hear it's a page-turner too. Oh and can I say I'm very very very glad your full posts are appearing in my reader now? Thank you for making that change!

I read "The Scar" and "Perdido Street Station". I really liked them (in the way one can like horrible things!) but I got burned out. But your post inspired me to get re-immersed so I just entered the contest for The City & The City over at fantasyhotlist!
