Book Reviews

‘The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.’ Alan Bennett

“Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.” ― Franz Kafka

Teaser Tuesday!

I am taking part in Teaser Tuesdays today.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
 My teaser sentences:
'Those raw recruits and the wives who follow them live an abnormal hothouse existence in the run-down small towns that were never meant for an influx of desperate young men and women carrying mortality around with them like their battered suitcases, tired babies, and threadbare hope.'
'If you're lucky, you get to see your husband for a few hours each night and maybe an overnight on the weekend.'
They come from my current read, 'Next to Love' by Ellen Feldman.
