Where Are You? (#1) and Teaser Tuesday (5)

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Two memes today!  They'll both be from Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane.

It's Tuesday...Where are you? is hosted by an adventure in reading. I'm looking for an escaped inmate on Shutter Island, off the coast of Massachusetts, in 1954. This is what Georges Island, one of the real islands in the area, looks like.

But I keep picturing Alcatraz.  If you ever get a chance to go there, you should!

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

"With the leaps--and there are leaps going on, don't kid yourself, leaps every day--happening in the field of mental health, a place like this will cease to exit.  Barbaric they'll call it twenty years from now.  An unfortunate by-product of the bygone Victorian influence.  And go it should, they'll say.  Incorporation, they'll say.  Incorporation will be the order of the day.  You are all welcomed into the fold.  We will soothe you.  Rebuild you.  We are all General Marshalls.  We are a new society, and there is no place for exclusion.  No Elbas."

What's your teaser? Where has your reading taken you this week?

  1. I loved LeHane's Mystic River and I've meant to read this one. Nice teaser and I love photos that go with your Where Are You?

  2. I kept picturing Alcatraz as well when I was listening to the audio version (I still need to write my review), but I did like it--want to see the movie too.

  3. Great teaser, love the pictures. Mine is at The Crowded Leaf.

  4. I am quite intrigued and definitely want to read more. Great teaser. My TT:

  5. Thanks for the pics. Really added to the teaser.

    Here's my teaser

  6. I so want to go to Alcatraz, but never got the chance! Great teaser!

  7. Great teaser! I subscribed! Here is my teaser if you are interested:

    I love that you added those photographs. They are great!

  8. Thanks, everyone! I'll probably finish it tonight, and it's really good so far. I have a feeling it's about to get even better though.

  9. We just went to San Francisco in October, and I kind of kept questioning why the guide book and everyone we knew who had been said we had to go to Alcatraz. It's a prison! What can be so cool about it?! But we went just to see what all the fuss was about, and it was one of the highlights of our trip.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! Have a great day!
