Tuesday Teasers: "Thunder Dog," "Art of Fielding" and "Sarah's Daughter"

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just do the following
  • 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 TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser.   
. . . "Get out of here!  It's coming down!"  The South Tower emits a deep rumble that becomes a deafening roar. I hear glass breaking and metal tearing, accompanied by a chorus of shrill and terrified screams.

     And then all Affenlight saw were faces, Mike Schwartz's big and nearby and twisted in a suffering grimace, Henry's beyond it round and distant and blank, revealing nothing, as there came, from that corner of the dugout, a muffled but nonetheless sickening crunch, followed by a thud.
From page 101 of The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach.

The date was on the back.  October 27, 1871, ten years after the Civil War began.  She didn't want to look like that.  She didn't want to be her mother.

  1. I like them all, but the first teaser appeals to me most.

  2. I think Sarah's Daughter grabbed me the most. I couldn't read the first one without getting upset probably. Great teasers though.

    Thanks for stopping by In Libris Veritas

  3. I'm most intrigued by The Art of Fielding. As glad I am about Michael Hingson's story I don't think I could read about that since I was in NYC at the time and it would just be too sad.

    I will be checking out the Chad Harbach book though. Thanks for your sharing your teasers and thanks for stopping by my blog.

  4. I am sure a few tissues would be needed for Thunder Dog.

  5. Hmm.. great teasers! All new books to me, but seem interesting. Thanks for stopping by earlier!

  6. They are all great! Thanks for sharing.

    Check out my post:

  7. The Art of Fielding really grabbed my attention. Adding it to my list.

  8. As always great teasers. Thunder Dog sounds like it's about the events that transpired on Sept. 11.. I don't know if I'd be ready to read any books about that yet, every time there is an "anniversary" and they show footage of that day ... it's just even now, so overwhelming..

    The sickening crunch and thud.. that doesn't sound good! I have heard of The Art of Fielding but never found out what it was about, sounds interesting, I especially want to know what caused this incident and what ended up happening!

    I think there are a lot of daughters who look at pictures of their moms and say "I never want to be be like that".

    I hope you all enjoy your books! As always kudos for donating money for comments, it's so awesome you guys do that!

  9. That teaser from Thunder Dog sounds exciting and terrifying at the same time ... wonder if they made it ...

  10. I don't want to be my mother either.

    Gerard, what disasterous books you've been reading this week. Exciting, but you know those sounds can't be good.

    All excellent teasers.

  11. You know, a baseball book (it seems?) wouldn't normally interest me, but it looks like the writing itself is quite well done. The first teaser is intense. And the third teaser...I think many people can read that one and feel what she means, and understand her fear.

  12. Three very different and exciting teasers... can't pick my favorite..:) I like them all.


Thanks for commenting and happy reading!
