Teaser Tuesday (03.23.10)

March 22, 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 Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold.

Buckley was still a little boy who my father could, with patience and a bit of maneuvering, get up on his shoulders so that they could be a typical father and son. But he now saw in Lindsey what brought a double pain. I was the little girl in the tub, a toddler being held up to the sink, a girl who had forever stopped just short of sitting as my sister did now. (p. 162)

What are you teasing us with today?

    Excellent choice of teaser. The Lovely Bones is one of those rare novels that stays with you long after it has been read. My TT:

    I have owned this book for years. Never even read the first page! I really should make an effort to read some of my own books!

    I’ve heard that this book is really good – but I just can’t bring myself to read it. Though I can’t believe I’d miss a Peter Jackson movie, I think I’ll pass on that as well. Too much grief.

    The Lovely Bones is a great book. It definitely stays with you. Very nice choice of teasers.

    I read this years ago and, while I liked it, I don’t think I’ll ever read it again. It’s a tough book to read because of the subject, at least it was for me.
