Intro Teaser Tuesdays




AMAZON

Since Atlanta, she had looked out the dining-car window with a delight almost physical. Over her breakfast coffee, she watched the last of Georgia's hills recede and the red pepper earth appear, and with it tin-roofed houses set in the middle of swept yards, and in the yards the inevitable verbena grew, surrounded by whitewashed tires. She grinned when she saw her first TV antenna atop an unpainted Negro house; as they multiplied, her joy rose.

  1. This is a very popular book right now. :-) I can't say I have any interest in reading it, but I am curious to know what those who do read it think of it. So far opinions are wide and varied.

  2. I listened to the first chapter (read by Reese Witherspoon) and also read it on the Guardian's website. I will eventually read this one, after all the hoopla dies down. Hope you enjoy it.

  3. Ah, the much ballyhooded Go Set a Watchman. I hope you enjoy it, but I know I won't be reading it because I've already seen too many people's disappointed comments.

  4. There's definitely plenty of buzz about this book. I'm sure I'll read it eventually, but I'm afraid I'll be disappointed.

  6. I'm conflicted -- I do and don't want to read this one. The intro doesn't make me want to rush out and begin it though.

    I hope this is a good reading experience for you.

  7. I am so wanting to read this book. All the hype and all the discussion has me wanting to participate. I did not read TKAM until a few years ago. Not sure how I missed it growing up, but I want to buy the two together, hardcover to keep. I hope you like it.

  8. There it is. The first paragraph of the 'it' book - at least right now. Have not read it yet. Will wait a bit. :-)

  9. I pre-ordered this one, so it came in my mailbox last week. I bought it in hardcover so it can sit side by side with my 50th anniversary copy of TKAM.

    I am curious about the opener...and can't wait to read my copy. Here's my choice today: “DUNE ROAD”

  10. This is one I'm going to pass up. I'm in the camp that doesn't believe Harper Lee really wanted it published. I'm honoring her wishes by not reading. I'm sorry if that offends you. I thought about not commenting, but thought I ought to let you know my feelings.

    1. No worries, I don't offend that easily.

    2. Let me add; if Harper didn't want anyone reading it, maybe she shouldn't have written it.
      I don't think anyone can say for sure if that was her wish or not.

  16. I actually just finished it over the weekend--I didn't want too many other outlets to make my opinion for me, kwim? I do think that the editor had it right, when he took a look at this and told her to go back and write a story about this Jean Louise as a girl--those are the parts that really shine.

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
