Teaser Tuesday – Death: A Life

  • 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!
  • My teaser this week is from Death: A Life by George Pendle:

    “So to set the scene for my downfall: the Romans were up, the Greeks were down, the Jews were in and out of captivity, the Chinese were building walls, and the Arabs were eating so many colored mushrooms it was doubtful they were even on this planet at all. It was a warm day in the Middle East and I was touring Earth picking up my usual quota of beggars, lepers, princes, merchants, leeks, kestrels, and kumquats when I found myself drawn to the site of a crucifixion…”

    – from page 129 of Death: A Life by George Pendle

    1. @ Jean : I am liking it – it’s a different pace than my normal read, but very interesting and very funny. 🙂
      Better than I thought it would be actually.
