Teaser Tuesday: The Passage by Justin Cronin



The Passage by Justin Cronin

Yesterday in my It's Monday post I said that this book had gone from really good to pretty bad and was getting a bit better. Well, I read a big chunk of last night and now it has gone back to being really exciting again! I can barely stop reading it. So if you are reading this book, stick through the middle bit, it is well worth it. Here is my teaser:
"A deafening barrage of cover fire from the catwalk as half a dozen soldiers leapt into the space over the yard, holding the ropes that connected though a system of pulleys and blacks to the gates hinges. Peter was momentarily arrested by the coordinated grace of it all, the practiced beauty of their synchronised movements."
So exciting. I will be looking forward to reading all of your teasers as well.

Teaser Tuesday is great meme hosted by Should Be Reading and is a great way to find out about new books.Here are the guidelines: 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!)

  11. That's one of the problems with long books - the authors often have trouble maintaining the same level of excitement all the way through. Glad you're starting to enjoy this one again. Excellent teaser!
