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 (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!
“Dr. Mortimer looked strangely at us for an instant, and his voice sank almost to a whisper as he answered:
‘Mr. Holmes, they were the footprints of a gigantic hound!’ ”
~ “The Hound of the Baskervilles” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Sounds so good. Have only ever seen the film version have not read yet…
It’s the exact opposite situation for me. I haven’t seen any of the film versions of The Hound of the Baskervilles. 🙂
I absolutely love The Hound of the Baskervilles, but then again i love all Sherlock Holmes cases. Hope you like it as well.
My teaser is from The Map of Time
I like The Hound of the Baskervilles but I still prefer the stories to the novels.
Here’s my TT this week: http://ttoria.blogspot.com
Great teaser! I haven’t read any Sherlock Holmes yet. Here is my teaser for this week.
Thanks! Hope you read some Sherlock Holmes soon. 🙂
I love Sherlock Holmes! I haven’t read this one yet – I need to get around to it soon. Great teasers!
Here’s my teaser for the week: http://danielleheartsbooks.blogspot.com/2012/01/teaser-tuesday-9.html
I love Sherlock Holmes too! The Sherlock Holmes stories are what got me hooked to mysteries in the first place. I prefer the stories to the novels though.
A classic that I definitely want to read sometime this year. Nice teaser.
