Teaser Tuesday: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. TeaserTuesdays-ADailyRhythm3-300x203Anyone 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!

I’m almost finished reading this wonderfully written book by Anthony Doerr but not quite, so I thought I’d share one more teaser:

AllTheLightWeCannotSeeIn her memory, Marie-Laure hears the two policemen: People have been arrested for less. And Madame Manec: Don’t you want to be alive before you die? (p.327)

I’m really enjoying this book.  I hope my teasers have grabbed your desire to read it as well.  What is your current read?  Please, share!

    I’m still reading All The Light We Cannot See as well, although I still haven’t made it to the point of the teaser. The prose and setting so far are simply brilliant and I love learning more about the characters.

    Happy reading! Here’s mine of Mr. Kiss And Tell by Rob Thomas.

      Thanks for stopping by. I went to your link and think Flight of Dreams must be an amazing book. My mind boggles at all the amazing writing that is now available to us thanks, in part anyway, I guess, to self-publishing. I love the concept of counting down to an ending we already know, at least, in part, and exploring the lives of those on board that fateful flight. I’m so glad you brought this book to my attention. Thanks again.


  5. I’ve heard nothing but praise for this book. I hope you’ve enjoyed it!

    My Teaser this week is from The Illegal by Lawrence Hill
