Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. It’s simple: turn to a random page of a book you’re currently reading and post two(ish) ‘teaser’ sentences.
“A bunch of nerds build a rocket to the fucking moon, and who do they send? A blond man named Armstrong, who can’t even say the line right when he lands.”
– Beat The Reaper by Josh Bazell
Beat The Reaper has been an interesting read so far. It’s written partially like the memoir of an ex-mafia guy in witness protection, but that is intermingled with a present tense story.
The most peculiar part of the book is its footnotes which tend to give non-fiction information. I’ve learned more from those footnotes than many non-fiction books in fact. Mafia history, Nazi Germany history, medicine – it touches on a little bit of everything.
This would be the most unique book I’ve read in a long while. Keep an eye out of my review.
What are your teasers this week?
