ON BOOKS ~ Then We Came To The End...

MizB asks you to:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
  • Share the title of the book the teaser comes from…that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

From pgs. 166-167 of THEN WE CAME TO THE END by Joshua Ferris (fiction)...

"Tom Mota liked the idea of sawing it into pieces and giving each one of us a head to decorate our offices with in remembrance of Brizz.

'Are you guys not in the least curious why Brizz had it in his backyard to begin with?' Benny asked."

Oh my god, I have no idea what your book is about, but in those couple of sentences my imagination has gone all over the place.

Sawing *what* into pieces? A *head* to decorate their offices?

It could be a completely innocent passage, but I've gotten such a violent image of a massacre in my head now! LOL!

See... that sounds like a fun read! (I actually cheated on my very first participation, as I have *really* just finished Sherlock Holmes, and am currently reading "The Ax" by Donald Westlake, which sounds like his writing could be similiar to your read...make sense?!

Happy Reading, my dear!

Wild guess here:
What is a "totem pole"?

Hmmm - I really want to know what "it" is - my imagination is running wild!

Here's my Teaser!

Sorry to have given poor Betty nightmares - Wanda is right on track!

Yes, 'totem pole' does make a lot of sense! LOL!
