Teaser Tuesday 12-23-08 : At Swim, Two Boys

Should Be Reading - Miz B - hosts this weekly event. We throw out a couple of sentences from our current read to entice you to read the book, without spoilers of course.

This week's book: At Swim, Two Boys by Jamie O'Neill, page 105:

A darker ardor charged his face and briefly she heard his shuffling, coughing congregation. Nothing would do but she must utter the dread word. "Bazaar."

This novel has gotten some very high ratings and excellent reviews at LibraryThing. I'm having to work at it a bit here at the beginning, the idioms and phrasing are very unique. But since I'm snowed in, I have nothing else to do!

It would be worth reading the book just to find out what that all means! Great teaser.

Interesting teaser. It almost sounds like she's hiding from him until she utters Bazaar.
