Teaser Tuesday – Norwegian Wood
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!
This week, I’m reading one of my favorite author’s book. Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami.
My plan is to read this book before seeing the movie.
My teaser is from page 71
“What do you think he said to my sister and me when our mother died? ‘I would much rather have lost the two of you than her.’ It knocked the wind out of me. I couldn’t say a word. You know what I mean? You just can’t say anything like that. O.K., he lost the woman he loved, his partner for life. I understand and the pain, the sadness, the heartbreak. I pity him. But you don’t tell the daughters you fathered ‘you should have died in her place.’ I mean, that’s just too terrible. Don’t you agree?”
