Teaser Tuesday (7/5/2011)

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

Grab your current read.

Let the book fall open to a random page.

Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.

Please avoid spoilers!

You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

The Eternal Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera

He understood nothing, had no idea what had happened; all he knew was that he had been waiting for it to happen ever since he met Sabina. What must be must be.

  1. “Why, then, make a show of the poverty of our life and our sad imperfection, unearthing people from the backwoods, from remote corners of the state? But what if this is in the writer’s nature, and his own imperfection grieves him so, and the makeup of his talent is such, that he can only portray the poverty of our life, unearthing peopl efrom the backwoods, from remote corners of the state!”

    Dead Souls, Nikolai Gogol (one of my faves – a re-read).

    Ah, so happy that you are reading some Kundera! I can’t say that Unbearable Lightness is his best, but I look forward to hearing what you think about it once you finish it.
