Teaser Tuesday – The Destiny of Shoes

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!

The Destiny of Shoes is the 4th short story out of 11 short stories compiled in The Square Persimmon by Takashi Atoda.

My teaser comes from page 74
And yet, because shoes went on the feet, perhaps they could take a person somewhere, be the person willing or not.

“The frightening ones are the shoes that want to die”

So far, it has been one great short story to another…I truly enjoy this book

      @ Dee it might sounds intense but its actually a beautiful story

      @ Kaye According to the book…all shoes have thought

      @ Laya It is very interesting!! I love every story in this book…Atoda-san is a genius in writing short story

    This sounds like a fun idea. My shoes would probably be a bit maudlin if I asked them. I wear them and wear them and wear them until they fall apart!

    I have two teasers this week!

    Interesting teaser. Beyond being comfortable, I have never given a thought to shoes. My teaser is from Naamah’s Curse by Jacqueline Carey.

      @ RJ I think it’s different with ‘red shoes’ … shoes here is a representation of human feeling

      @ Hampshireflyer Hehe it’s not a frightening story
