Teaser Tuesday 5

2 March 2010

This is how it works:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) ‘teaser’ sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • 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!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

This time it’s How to Paint a Dead Man by Sarah Hall. I’m not sure what I think: I’ve not engaged with at least two of the four voices yet, which will make it a bit of a slog if it keeps on like this, but that’s not very teaser-y. Sorry, book.

You’ve begun to eat meat again after a decade of being vegetarian. You eat it rare, savouring the wet iron on your tongue. Venison. Liver. (p. 34)

    Hm, second person. I’ve never tried a book written in this point of view.

    I enjoy both venison and liver – but not rare!!! I like venison well done with cranberry jelly on the side.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!


  2. Hi, and welcome! The chances are only a quarter of it or so will turn out to be in second… so don’t let that put you off 🙂

  5. Interesting. And why is he/she eating meat again now? Or maybe I don’t want to know! Excellent teaser!

    Ooh, I like this! It’s sensual and just a little bit creepy. Great teaser!

    Thanks for visiting bookwanderer!


  8. Interesting teaser. I’ve just gone back to being veggie! How funny!

    I hope he’s taking his time with the sequels so that they are fantastic rather than churning them out to make money!

    Oooooh what is going on here??!

    Very intriguing. Who is watching who?

    I get a feeling this born again carnivore is a bad ‘un…!

    Take care
