Theme Thursday: Crockery/Utensil

*A theme will be posted each week (on Thursdays)
*Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you're reading that features the theme.
*Post it and don't forget to mention the author and title of the book.
*Since we may take a few days to finish a book, this event is open for one whole week.

This week's theme is Crockery/Utensil. Here is mine from The Last Defender of Camelot by Rober Zelazny (p. 11):

The falling star did not burn out. It grew to the size of a dinner plate, a house, and hung in the air, exhaling the souls of suns.

Wow! I think that would be frightening or beautiful, just depending what kind of mood you were in to start with.

Never thought that a "dinner plate" could be in the same sentence as "air", "suns" and "star".

Nice one!
