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!
Today’s teaser is from my recently finished read, The Plague by Albert Camus. Review coming soon!
“…And when it comes down to it, you realize that no one is really capable of thinking of anyone else, even in the worst misfortune. Because thinking about someone really means thinking about that person minute by minute, not being distracted by anything – not housework, not a fly passing, not meals, not an urge to scratch oneself. But there are always flies and itches. This is why life is hard to live. And these people know that very well.”
~ P. 186, “The Plague” by Albert Camus
I always wonder how people have the time to think badly about other people…there’s so much to do! I do, on the other hand, think of people who have helped me all the time…so I’m going to say this teaser is true in some situations 😉
One of these days I’m going to read this classic. Thanks for the reminder.
My Teaser is from REMEMBER ME?
I hope you get to read it someday. 🙂
Great teaser, sounds intriguing.
I think that would be very hard to achieve.
