Teaser Tuesday


MizB of Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesday. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:


*Grab your current read
*Open to a random page
*Share two "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!

Here's a teaser from my current read, Castle Dor by Daphne Du Maurier & Arthur Quiller-Couch (p. 102):


"It's about Amyot--and Mrs. Lewarne."
"I don't see the connection...You've been dreamin', and thoughts all get mixed up in dreams....Puttin' two an' two together and making 'em five."

I read and reviewed this one recently...will be interested to see which bits you think are Du Maurier's!

Deepali said...

Oh! Is this book co-authored, or is a posthumous thing? Its new to me.
Thanks for visiting!

@Deepali: According to the book flap du Maurier "met Quiller-Couch when she was a young girl and became a good friend of the novelist & his family. At the suggestion of Quiller-Couch's daughter Miss du Maurier to finish this novel." I'm not sure what "finish" means...how much is his and how much is hers.

Deepali said...

Exactly! So essentially, who made the outline and who actually fleshed out the story?
And of the two, which author do you think would be the bigger contributor?

(Im interested also cause I'm reading Robert J.'s & Brandon Sanderson's jointly written ending to the Wheel of Time trilogy). Both are great authors that I admire. RJ wrote the notes, outline, sketched out several scenes, and Brandon is taking over post his death and keeping true to the wishes.

Good teaser! I read this one many years ago and remember liking it. But that's about all I remember about it! Guess it might be time for a reread.

I am currently reading Tales of the Macabre by Daphne duMaurier and finding that I enjoy her writing. Thanks for stopping by The Blog O'The Irish!!! Interesting teaser.

Clare said...

Hmm, I detect dark secrets… am I anywhere near the mark?

Bev Hankins said...

@Clare...well, I'm not that far in, but, yes, I think you're right.

Audra said...

Oh, double teaser -- I hadn't realized there was a co-authored Du Maurier -- I'm not sure I approve! Still -- the teaser is a little tempting... I look forward to your review!
