I've just bought my new book so I'm keen to share a little.
Tuesday’s Teaser asks you to:
1 Grab your current read.
2 Let the book fall open to a random page.
3 Share two (2) sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
They say it is a good idea to share the title of the book your “teaser” is from so other people can find it if the section you have posted has drawn them in to the world the author created.
I loved the blurb that reads:
As amazing as SPIDER-MAN
As electrifying as THE WIRE
A SCI-FI CRIME THRILLER that GRIPS like a VICE
I loved the premise:
Before the attack, sixteen-year-old Tom Harvey was just an ordinary boy.
But now fragments of a shattered iPhone are embedded in his brain and it’s having an extraordinary effect…
This book was written by Kevin Brooks:
"Kevin Brooks just gets better and better, and given that he started off brilliant, that leaves one scratching around for superlatives" SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
The two sentences I am posting are from page 22 of iBoy by Kevin Brooks:
Of course, I knew I should have mentioned all this weirdness to someone. I mean, Mr Kirby had told me how important it was to let someone know immediately if I started experiencing anything unusual, and this was definitely something unusual.
Kevin Brooks is the master of the short sharp sentence and neatly curtailed dialogue. He does good things with a story arc too ;)
WHICH BOOK, AND ITS AUTHOR, DO YOU LOVE READING AT THE MOMENT?
