Teaser Tuesday – Frankenstein

 Should Be Reading

 TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly event, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading, where you ‘tease’ others with a little bit from the book you’re currently reading, making them want to read it, too! :D Feel free to play along! You just…

 

  • 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
  •  

    Some miracle might have produced it, yet the stages of the discovery were distinct and probable.  After days and nights of incredible labour and fatigue, I succeeded in discovering the cause of generation of life; nay, more, I became myself capable of bestowing animation upon lifeless matter.

    Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Chapter 4

    Your turn.

      I love your teaser! Every autumn I think, “I must read Frankenstein this year.” Every autumn it never happens. Maybe this year is the year! (For some weird reason, I just can’t make myself even think of Frankenstein any other time of the year. It seems like a “curl up with a blanket and some cocoa” kind of book!)

      It’s so short that I don’t know why I’ve waited! I’m taking it on an airplane, so I’ll be curled up by a window with soft drinks and peanuts 🙂

      With all the terrible movies made from Shelley’s idea, I sometimes forget the poetry of her writing. This is both a haunting and beautiful quote.
