Teaser Tuesday (4)

Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson

"There was no window anywhere in his basement cell, no portal through which the autumn light could come to him.  He had missed autumn, he realized now--it had passed already, evaporated.  The snowfall, which he witnessed out of the corners of his eyes--furious, wind-whipped flakes against the windows--struck him as infinitely beautiful."

What's your teaser?



Teaser Tuesdays 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 two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
  • Share the title and author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

  4. I loved this book when I read it in high school. I haven't see the movie, probably cause I don't want it to spoil the vision that I already have in my mind for it.
