Teaser Tuesday – Last Night at the Lobster

 teasertuesdays31Grab 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!

His mission is simple:  Buy something she will love, and love him for buying.  Nothing useful, like a new camera to take pictures of the baby (that’s on a different list), or a brake job for her Elantra (on no list but his, nagging as a jagged cavity or the sudden absence, now, of the rubber band).

    I’ve been wanting to read this book! I loved Stuart O’Nan’s Snow Angels years ago and have A World Away up next for the WWII Challenge. I’ll be back for your thoughts on this one …

    I think that’s sweet. Andy gave me a set of tires for my birthday or some such occassion one year. His sisters have never let him live that one down. I however thought it was incredibly romantic because he was so worried about my safety in my old car with the balled tires – it was his way of saying “I love you” at a time when he was shy about that sort of thing.

    I love the teaser! He’s kind of in the middle of a dilemma, isn’t he? This is the sort of choice that just doesn’t come naturally to most men. Excellent teaser!

    Meanwhile, my own teaser is at Bookishgal.

    That’s a great teaser! It reminds me exactly of my father, and what I suppose his thought processes to be like. Sometimes he succeeds in finding that illusive present for my mother, and sometimes he just reverts to the ‘useful.’ It’s got to be hard…so many things going on at once. Good choice!
