Teaser Tuesday – The Gunslinger

What is Teaser Tuesday?

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of
Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  4. 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!)
  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Yeaaa Finally \(^_^)/ … this week’s teaser is from my number one author, the great Mr.Stephen King.

The book I’m reading right now is The Gunslinger, the 1st book of The Dark Tower Series

My teaser is from page 135

He looked at the gunslinger, who saw that the boy’s mouth was trembling as he strove to keep back tears – only a boy, he tought, and pain smote him, like the icepick that too much cold water can sometimes plant in the forehead. Only a Boy. Why?

      @Lisa Haha poor book…you should clean the dust as soon as possible 😉

      @Andrea Thx 🙂 and It’s not a surprise to meet someone who hasn’t read SK’s works yet…his genre isn’t something that up to everyone’s liking.

      @Marce Hehehe…it seems that you know me well 😉

    Interesting teaser. I have not read anything by Stephen King in quite some time. My oldest likes his work. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/01/teaser-tuesdays-knit-purl-die.html

      @Jennifer aa I should meet your son then 😉 and we can talk about King all day.

      @Kaye actually I’e read better King’s work than this book

      @Susan I’ll check your teaser soon 😉

      @PussrebootPeople are giving high rank for this book in goodreads.

    Oh. Sadly, I know what’s coming in that one. I loved the first two, then sort of lost my taste for the series. Good teaser, though.

    My “headline” teaser is here.

      Honestly…I’ve reached page 167, 100 pages more to finish it…and yet I haven’t found the excitement I usually get from SK’s novels.

      I don’t think this will be one of my fav SK’s books….Maybe the ending can change it.

Say something so I know you have read my post, THANK YOU for reading :)
