Teaser Tuesday – Under The Dome (2)

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!

You can see that I’m still reading Under The Dome by Stephen King.

I have reached 2/3 of this book…I enjoy it more and more. Under The Dome is not a horror novel, it is more like psychological thriller. It shows how corrupt politician acts in such isolated condition and how people behave toward the politicians.

My teaser is from page 655

“And that was just what officer Arsenault did. But not before others in town had taken down a few of the papers for perusal in brighter light – half a dozen, maybe ten. They were passed from hand to hand in the next two or three days, and read untill they quite literally fell apart.”

    It is not horror? I am adding it to my list. I do like psychological thrillers and your teaser. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/11/teaser-tuesdays-outside-the-ordinary-world.html

      Hmmm… I don’t think Under The Dome is creepy…it’s pure suspense but no creepy elements in it

    I used to love reading Stephen King until I read Rose Madder(is that the title) and since then I haven’t touched any of his books. It’s nice to know he does other stuff than horror. Thanks for sharing your teaser 🙂

    You can find my teaser here

      Ah..yes Rose Madder is not a good book.

      Well, he does quite a number of great non-horror books, Ones that Iove the most are Green Mile and Shawshank Redemption. I haven’t read The Body yet, but that is also a non-horror novela.

    You are doing really well with this one by the sound of it.

    My teaser comes from Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

      I surprised myself that I can read this fast…it glued me completely. The last thick book that I read this fast was The Lord of The Rings (all three of them)

    Oh, now that I know it’s more of a psychological thriller, it’s definitely going on my list…

    Thanks for sharing, and also for visiting my blog.

    Taking down and passing around the papers is just what I’d expect. Great teaser. Makes me think I might want to read the book.

    King is always adept at describing our deepest fear to paper… and this one sounds good…

    The Shining will always give me the chills… redrum will forever be a squeemish word for me….

    Mine is from Wrong Blood….. Not a horror…
