January 18, 2011
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!
Continuing my new obsession, facsination, interest in all-things-zombie, I'm reading Dust by Joan Frances Turner. It's a zombie novel told by a zombie POV, sort of like Brains: A Zombie Memoir. I am enjoying this book quite a bit more than the other one, though I can't quite put my finger on why. Anyway, here's my teaser from page 29:
I reached out and touched his face. Chit-chit, said the bugs. He grunted, almost belched the crude shape of words, a caveman with a rotten tongue - but soon as all that hrruh-hrruh-mmmuhhhh shot through my head it became waves of sound, transformed radio waves, and then words precise and clear as pieces of glass glittering on the beach.
"I'm Joe," he said. "Happy birthday."
