Teaser Tuesday – The Body
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!
Some of you probably thinking “eh? she is still reading this book! How long does it take to finish this book?”
Well…the answer is simple…it takes longer time because I am reading it in between other books. I read one novella and then read another novel by another author and then get back to the next novella on this book and so on.
I am now reading The Body, the third novella from Different Seasons by Stephen King.
I am going to cheat because I like a lot of quotes from this book. the story is about friendship.
I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, did you?
I kept waiting for the trestle to start shaking under my feet. When that happened, it would be right behind us.
“GO FASTER, VERN! FAAASTER!”
“oh gawd Gordie oh Gawd Gordie og Gawd Gordie oh Gawd AWWWWWWW SHEEEEYIT!”
Even if I’d known the right thing to say, I probably couldn’t have said it. Speech destroys the function of love, I think – that’s a hell of a thing for a writer to say, I guess, but I believe it to be true.
