Teaser Tuesday – The Man Who Ate the 747


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone 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! ;)


Upon careful investigation, though, there was no new record.  The pilot had come close – within 30 feet – but the place in history still belonged to Vesna Vulovic, a Yugoslavian flight attendant who fell 33,330 feet when her DC-9 exploded over Czechoslovakia.

The Man Who Ate the 747 by Ben Sherwood, Chapter 1

So, what are you reading this week?

UPDATE:  This is from the beginning of the book-  “The world records in this books are real, as are the places where the story unfolds.  The rest is make-believe.”

    This tease may contribute to my “Fear of Flying” but I’m glad somebody got even and ate that 747! Just kidding!
    Nice tease.

    Absolutely 😉

    Good God. Is that 33,000 feet and lived? Surely not. Need more info here. You have me wondering. You teaser you.

    I should have clarified a little. I’ve updated the post, but still want you to be teased 😉
