Teaser Tuesdays

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

*Grab your current read.Link*Open to a random page.
*Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.

*BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! You don't want to ruin the book for others.
*Share the title and author too, so other TT participants can add it to their TBR lists if they like your teaser.

Here's mine from The Shortest Way to Hades by Sarah Caudwell (p. 34):

A particular tone is used by young men apparently ingenuous to make observations apparently innocent in a manner apparently respectful with the intention of being extremely impertinent: one can hardly hope, in academic life, to be unfamiliar with it. I did not know quite what Lucian meant by these remarks; but I was very sure that it was not what he seemed to mean.

Apparently you have to take a breath between reading apparently that much to get the true affect, lol. I liked the teaser. :-)

Great teaser! I've always meant to read something by Sarah Caudwell, but so far haven't done it. Maybe this year.
