Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from - that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

From The Fears of Henry IV by Ian Mortimer, p. 71.

"The teacher's voice took on a strange inspired resonance whenever he spoke about his indians, the formerly rebellious Aymara race who had held the Incas armies at bay, and it switched to deep despondency when he spoke of the indians' present condition, brutalized by modern civilization and the impure mestizos, his bitter enemies, who take revenge on the Aymaras for their own position as neither fish nor fowl." The Motorcycle Diaries, by Ernesto Che Guevara. OK, so it's Wednesday, and technically that's one sentence, but it's really long, so . . .
