Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • 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!

“I think perhaps I shall sacrifice that white bull after all. And you,” he said to Attilius, “will give me back my water within two days.”

From Pompeii by Robert Harris, p. 66.

Too bad for the white bull! Sounds intriguing - great teasers.

I read Pompeii and throughly enjoyed it. Hope you are too. I heard they were making a movie about it too.

Sounds like a fair trade although he probably wouldn't give up "red bull" sorry, just couldn't resist.

Great teaser.

Since I've not heard of this book I'll have to guess what the background is - cowboys? ancient city? a water feud in Argentina? I'll have to come back for your review.
