Teaser Tuesday, Shantaram

teasertuesdays3TEASER 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!

    Please avoid spoilers!

Didier once told me, in a rambling, midnight dissertation, that a dream is the place where a wish and a fear meet.  When the wish and the fear are exactly the same, he said, we call the dream a nightmare.

Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts, Chapter 7

  12. Your teaser made me think! LOL! Now I’m really wondering if it’s true about dreams being where our wish and fears meet, and about the nightmares…
