Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly book meme originally featured at Should Be Reading. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)
I have just started reading this book and I am already hooked. It’s got a lot of unique names, characters and settings which is refreshing for me. And for the first time in three weeks I am reading a novel not about immigration\culture-shock. Not that immigration is bad, but it’s a nice change for me.
“In their eyes I am already a dead woman, destined for the grave. My arms are tethered in front of me. As we ride this awful parade, the irons pinch my flesh until it bloodies in front of my eyes. I have come to expect harm now.” (35)
Have you read this book already? Or have you read a book by a Scandinavian author recently?
