Teaser Tuesday-Oct. 13


Check out Teaser Tuesdays from Should Be Reading. TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

Grab your current read.

Let the book fall open to a random page.

Share with us two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.

You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

This week my teaser is from A Change in Altitude by Anita Shreve:
The government had rounded up fifty students at the university, one of them said.  The students had been massacred and tossed into a mass grave.

pg. 28

I've been curious about this one. I've never read anything by Anita Shreve, and I thought this one might be a good place to start, although it sounds a little different from her earlier books. Good teaser.

Zia said...

Holy cow! That's teaser that will stick with you. I might have to go see what this book is about now.

Andrea said...

OMG, that's an attention getter. I'm going to have to look up this book.
Great teaser! Here's mine.

Oh dear, I have this book on my shelf to read soon. This is my first Anita Shreve so I'll hold off my judgement till I'm done.

Anita Shreve is a really good writer. I haven't read this one, but some others. Thanks for the teaser.

Great teaser! I just finished A Change in Altitude myself and loved it. I've got a review and giveaway on my site for you to check out when you are finished. It will be fun to compare our thoughts on the book!

That was a good one.

Laura's Reviews said...

While Fortune's Rocks and The Weight of Water are my favorite Shreve novels, Sea Glass and Resistance are among my favorites too! I hope she writes another historical novel again soon.

The Westie Loving Therapist said...

Your teaser certainly is an attention getter. I've not read any of Anita Shreve's books either, so I'll have to check this out.

Here's my teaser...

I tried to read this last month and just couldn't get into it. I am hoping if I give it a shot at another time that it will go better!

Good teaser from it though!
