Teaser Tuesday - Flood

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* 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!)
* Share the title and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!

The Tease:
"They all looked so similar, Lily thought, male and female, British and American, military and civilian, young and not so young, in their grimy underwear, pasty pale from the lack of daylight, their eyes hollow, their scalps and faces shaved bare.  But they were all white, and all British or American, the categories that made them valuable as hostages." - Flood, by Stephen Baxter

What's your Tease?


  1. Your teaser makes me wish to look out for this novel!

  4. Oooh, that sounds like a good book! Or at least, a good quote from a book! ;-) My interest is most definitely piqued!
