Teaser Tuesday (02.16.10)

February 15, 2010

teasertuesdays31Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. It’s easy enough to play along, just follow the Teaser Tuesdays link for rules.

Today’s teaser comes from The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom. I haven’t started this book yet, so here are the first few lines.

This is a story about a man named Eddie and it begins at the end, with Eddie dying in the sun. It might seem strange to start a story with an ending. But all endings are also beginnings. We just don’t know it at the time. (p. 1)

What are you teasing us with today?

    Nice one! I’ve often thought that myself…the end is the beginning…

    that’s a compelling way to start. I looked this one up but I couldn’t find much on it so will keep an eye out.

    I tried to read that book a while ago and couldn’t get into & look forward to your thoughts (maybe I’ll try again).
    Here’s my teaser:

    That is a great beginning. I have read that book but I didn’t enjoy it much. But everybody else I know that has read it has loved it – hopefully you will too.

    I really like that – its a really clever way to start a book. I am totally interested in what the book is about just from that beginning bit. If I ever write a book I hope I have such a good beginning.

    Heres mine

    That’s a great quote and a great teaser! I enjoyed this book. Hope you do too. Have a terrific week!

    I read this one quite a few years ago but remember really liking it.

    Here is mine.

  16. February 16, 2010 5:04 am

    I like books that start with the ending, hooks me right away. Heres mine

  17. February 16, 2010 5:06 am

    Kind of like reading the last page first : )

  18. February 16, 2010 5:08 am

    My rather naughty teaser is here.

    Here is mine.

    This was a great book, and “all endings are beginnings” is one of my favorite lines from it. WordTrix

    That sounds like an interesting read!

  28. February 16, 2010 8:53 am

  39. February 16, 2010 6:29 pm

    I’d be interested to hear what you think about the book after you’ve finished it. It’s one of those books that I’ve been avoiding.

    Oooo good one!
