Title: Something Rotten
Author: Jasper Fforde
It was a bright and clear morning in mid-July two weeks later when I found myself on the corner of Broome Manor Lane in Swindon, on the opposite side of the road to my mother's house, with a toddler in a pushchair, two dodos, the Prince of Denmark, an apprehensive heart and hair cut too short. The Council of Genres hadn't taken the news of my resignation very well.
I love Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next books, and the fourth is proving itself to be the best yet. If you've not read Fforde before, and are intrigued by the snippet, make sure you read the books in chronological order, starting with The Eyre Affair.
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 "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 and author too so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.
