Bookish Meme Teaser Tuesdays Weekly Event

BLOG MEME: Teaser Tuesdays (16th June)



Teaser Tuesday, a blog meme hosted by MizB on Should Be Reading.

Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page. Share the title & author of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser. Please avoid spoilers!

So here is my Tuesday Teaser:

‘The lights are on, but they’re retreating into the inner darkness, into superstition and unreason. The future is going to be a struggle between vast systems of competing psychopathies, all of them willed and deliberate, part of a desperate attempt to escape from a rational world and the boredom of consumerism.’

Pg 105
Kingdom Come
J.G. Ballard

What’s yours?

  2. Hi! I haven't read Ballard, though he's one of the writers that I eventually want to get to. Your teaser makes me more interested in his work. Thanks!

  4. Thanks for your comment Book Resort!

    Nope, that's not it, but it's good the way a teaser gets you imagining all sorts of things.

    Guess that's the idea, to make you go and buy it to find out.
