Teaser Tuesday – Shawshank Redemption

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!

I’m back to novel now and leave my One Piece Manga behind 🙂

The book I’m reading now is Different Seasons by Stephen King, it is a collection of 4 novellas. My plan is to read 1 novella from this book and then read book from other author and then back to the second novella in Different Seasons and so on.

The 1st story is the famous Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption

My teaser comes from page 47

Andy was looking at Hadley with those cold, clear, calm eyes, and it wasn’t just the thirty-five thousand then, we all agreed on that. I’ve played it over and over in my mind and I know. It was man against man, and Andy simply forced him, the way a strong man can force a weaker man’s wrist to the table in a game of Indian rasseling

    I must confess I’ve not read this story even though I saw the movie a gazillion times by now.

      @Sullivan @Beth @Emma … don’t worry, I’ve also watched a lot of adaptation movies and never read the book yet. Tho I always try to find the books from movies I really like.

    I haven’t gotten over my last attempt to read Stephen King. Maybe I should try some short stories.

    My teaser comes from The Night Villa by Carol Goodman

    Very intense! Nice teaser. Is this the story the movie is based on? My teaser is at The Crowded Leaf.

      Yes it is 🙂
      When I watched the movie, I couldn’t believe it was written by Stephen King.

    It is one of the four novellas I read by Stephen King.

    Here is my Teaser Tuesday: The Tale of Halcyon Crane!

    I haven’t read the book or seen the movie (one of the few people in North America who hasn’t, ha!), but this teaser does sound both intense and intriguing. Good choice!

    My own teaser is at Bookishgal.

      You should at least watch it…it’s a great movie 🙂

      Too bad I can’t look into your teaser, the link doesn’t work 😦

    This one will be difficult. As I type, in the place I am at, there are no books, no novels, no reading material, except for this laptop that I am pecking away at. I am in a 12 by 12 home office. One small light is illuminated, the TV is off, the radio is silent. I am alone at this exact moment.
    (It’s the perfect scenario people describe right before they have been abducted by aliens)
    But fear not, I have locked the doo

      I’ve checked your meme, interesting but I couldn’t have 2 memes at the same day.
