Teaser Tuesday - Shutter Island


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com

  • 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!

'She said once that time is nothing to me but a series of bookmarks that I use to jump back and forth the text of my life, returning again and again to the events that mark me, in the eyes of my more astute colleagues, as bearing all the characteristics of the classic melancholic.'

  6. After reading this again, it is amazing how much this is a foreshadowing of the end. Great teaser.

  8. I don't think I'll read this one - if it's like the movie, too scary :)
    Just saw your "librarything" widget - will have to check that out.

    HERE is my teaser for this week.

  13. Hope you enjoyed the book. Just from other's reviews, I'm not sure this would be a book I would read.

  14. This one is a big mistake for me.... I saw the movie first and didn't care for it. Kind of killed the book for me.

  16. I have been seeing the previews for the movie Shutter Island . A friend saw and recommended. Would you say it would be better to read the book first? Always like these psychological thrillers.

    My TT is for A Woman in Berlin . Link Summit Musings

  17. Cool writing. Awesome choice. I'm scared of this book/movie.

  18. Neat teaser! I read this a while ago and I'm still not sure I really understand what was real and what was not. My teaser is here.

    ReplyDelete
  19. This makes even more sense now that I've seen the end of the movie.... although I haven't read the book, I know, naughty naughty! :)

    My teaser's at http://hampshireflyer.wordpress.com/2010/04/20/teaser-tuesday-12/

  20. I want to read this book and then go to the movie. Great teaser!

    I'm about ready to read "The Book Thief." It's on my table to read next. My Tuesday Teaser is from another Markus Zusak book. Have you read it?
