Teaser Tuesday # 1

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share 2 "teaser" sentences from somewehere on that page
  • Be careful not to include spoilers (make sure that what you say 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!

Teaser:

"I'd come up with the idea of cutting off his finger after a bit of thought. I wanted something to make sure they knew it was me, something to remember me by. The finger was easy, straighforward and not too messy. It would make me look crazy enough but not a complete psycho. Didn't want them to think that."
-pg.12 Random by Craig Robertson




This is Craig Robertson's first novel so I was a bit anxious in picking it up at first. So far, so good though. I'm only up to page 40, and I'm already hooked!

Interesting teaser! I'm assuming this is from the perspective of the killer? Is the whole book told that way - sounds interesting!

it was a good read but i didn't really enjoy it because of the subject matter. i felt sad afterwards for the main character. but i could understand where he was coming from.
