Teaser Tuesdays


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading

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!

The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton p. 49

"Hall had been a compromise candidate for the team; Stone would have preferred a physician with experience in metabolic disease, and the choice of a surgeon instead had been made with the greatest reluctance. There had been great pressure from Defense and the AEC to accept Hall, since those groups believed in the Odd Man Hypothesis; in the end, Stone and the others had given in."

This book was my previous boss's favorite, and the author is one of my sister's favorites, so I was excited to read it!

Interesting teaser. It's been a while since I've read anything by Crichton.

I thought the movie was good; I've never read the book. The teaser sounds really good, though, much more about the political and interpersonal stuff than just "What is this thing?"

My teaser is here: http://teabagsinfusion.blogspot.com/2010/09/not-really-teaser-tuesday-more-on-if.html
