Teaser Tuesday - Jasper Fforde




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!

My teaser is from SOMETHING ROTTEN, the fourth book in Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next series. If you've ever talked to me for more than five minutes, I've probably gone on and on about the brilliance of Fforde (postmodernism that isn't infatuated with its own cleverness!).

"I'd like Mel Gibson to play me," said Zhark thoughtfully.

"I don't think Gibson does bad guys. You'd probably be played by Geoffrey Rush or someone."

hehe - sounds like a fun book, although I didn't think Geoffrey Rush played bad guys either! I don't know Fforde's work, but I might have to look him up.

Cute teaser! Don't smack me, but I've never heard of Fforde. I'm going to go look him up.
