Theme Thursday: Face

Hosted by Reading Between the Pages

  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
*Link back to Reading Between the Pages

And this week's theme is Face [Features, etc].  Here's mine from "The Gift of the Magi" in The Four Million & Other Stories by O. Henry: 

Jim stopped inside the door, as immovable as a setter at the scent of a quail. His eyes were fixed upon Della, and there was an expression in them that she could not read, and it terrified her. It was not anger, nor surprise, nor disapproval, nor any of the sentiments that she had been prepared for. He simply stared at her fixedly with that peculiar expression on his face.

O. Henry was masterful. It's a great story.

One of my favorite stories! O. Henry was one of the best. Good choice.
