Tardy Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My teaser:
"Yeah." She grins. "Insanity. Brilliance. Such a touchy call. Look, Cameron, I'm just a messenger. I don't know everything. But I do know this: you're being given a chance. Take it and you might live. Stay here and you will surely die." Dulcie cuddles Mr. Bubbles Kitty, fluffing him with her fingers. "Whaddaya say--you, Gonzo, connecting the dots, finding Dr. X, getting a cure, saving the universe? You down, cowboy?"

from 'Going Bovine' by Libba Bray.

"Men stood by their fences and looked at the ruined corn, drying fast now, only a little green showing through the film of dust. The men were silent and they did not move often. And the women came out of the houses to stand beside their men- to fell whether this time the men would break."

"Grapes of Wrath"
by John Steinbeck

You probably read it in junior high or high school, but I definitely get it more as an adult.

No, I never did read The Grapes of Wrath, nor a number of other tiresome 'classics'. I did, however, read hundreds of other quality novels over that time period.
