Teaser Tuesday: The Passage by Justin Cronin

June 1, 2010 Teaser Tuesday 9

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!


My teaser this week comes from The Passage by Justin Cronin:

When all time ended, and the world had lost its memory, and the man that he was had receded from view like a ship sailing away, rounding the blade of earth with his old life locked in on it’s hold; and when the gyring stars gazed down upon nothing, and the moon in its arc no longer remembered his name, all that remained was the great sea of hunger on which he floated forever–still, inside him, in the deepest place, was this: one year.


What is your teaser this week?

    I just finished The Passage yesterday! After an epic 12 hour reading session. Let me tell you, I couldn’t put it down, it was so fantastic 🙂 And that is an excellent teaser for it 🙂

    That’s a beautiful, poetic, and confusing-as-heck quote. Makes me want to dive into the book immediately. Great teaser!
