Teaser Tuesday: Something Rotten by Jasper Fforde


TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • 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:

“I utterly refute,” began Kaine, “the implication that we aren’t doing things the right way. To demonstrate this I’d like to wander completely off the point and talk about the Health Service overhaul that we will launch next year. We want to replace the outdated ‘preventative’ style of health care this country has relentlessly pursued with a ‘wait until it gets really bad’ system, which will target those most in need of medical treatment – the sick.”

    “It was only when I had the lobby phone in my hand that I realized he had never answered my question about why he didn’t tell the man at reception that I wasn’t involved with the murders.
    Drake, I found out later, didn’t lie unless he felt it was absolutely necessary.”
    From page 194 of Kate MacAlisters’s Fire Me Up.
