Teaser Tuesday!!

I almost forgot about posting a teaser today!  

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading and it asks us to...
  • 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!
 This week's teaser comes from China Mieville's newest book, Kraken:  "The streets of London are stone synapses hardwired for worship.  Walk the right or wrong way down Tooting Bec you're invoking somethin or other.  You may not be interested in the gods of London, but they're interested in you."   p. 97

Ok -- that was 3 sentences.   Sorry!    I've been taking my time with this one, but with luck, I'll have a review up by Friday.

Great teaser! I didn't know Mieville had a book coming out -- I will have to see if my library is getting/has cataloged Kraken. Have you read any other books by Mieville? I enjoyed Un Lun Dun very much.

hi Lynn! I've read everything by Mieville, although I wasn't as big on Looking for Jake. Kraken is out in the UK and should be out in the US in about another month. If you like Un Lun Dun, you might not enjoy his other books --- they're very different from that particular book. :)

This looks great! Amazing teaser! I read the most amazing book this week. I had used it for my Teaser Tuesday and loved it so much I decided to post my review today. Feel free to head over to my blog and check it out at http://EmmaMichaels.Blogspot.com and post your teaser in my comments!


Sincerely,
