Teaser Tuesday: The Book Thief

>> October 28, 2008

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by
Should be Reading:

  • 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 is from the one book that I am reading right now that is for fun. Everything else I am reading is for school, which doesn't necessarily make them BAD books, because it doesn't, it just makes them required, and I don't like being told what to do. That's for sure. So anyway, my teaser is from The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak. My teaser is from page 111.

She saw it all so clearly.
Her starving mother, her missing father.
Kommunisten.

Her dead brother.
"And now we say goodbye to this trash, this poison."

And... another fun quote from the book, that is narrated by Death:

"To me, war is like the new boss who expects the impossible,
You see?
Even death has a heart."

The Teaser Tuesday idea I've seen on a few blogs, however I first saw it on this blog: Reading Adventures. Check it out. The writer is hilarious. Especially for anyone that likes books.
