Teaser Tuesday: The Fall by Guillermo Del Toro & Chuck Hogan

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:

“He detected tracees of humanity in their faces, but it was only that: traces.  Like the glimmer of greedy humanoid intelligence one sees inside the eyes of a hungry dog.” (ARC, pg. 101)

 

What is your teaser this week?

    Have you ever read Guillermo del Toro? I’m really curious how he is as an author. Or is Chuck Hogan more the author and del Toro more the storyteller? Will have to try him out someday.

      I think this may have been his first book, although like you suggested, I think Hogan is the true author. Both Del Toro & Hogan are highly talented individuals! I highly recommend both THE STRAIN and THE FALL!

  2. I’ve not read any Guillermo del Toro, but I might have to now — this is a great teaser!

      You really should! I was totally impressed with the first book in this trilogy, THE STRAIN, and was very excited to have received a review copy of THE FALL. The writing is great, the storyline is unique.

  3. Descriptive, scary, but descriptive. I have not heard of this one, but look forward to your review. My Monday is here: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/09/teaser-tuesdays-pretty-little-things.html

  4. Can’t wait to hear what you think! Hope it’s as good as The Strain.

  5. Do you know why The Fall by Del Toro & Hogan is not out in audio format yet? I listened to The Strain & would like to continue with that format. Ron Perlman did a great job as a narator.

      I’m sorry; I do not know. I’m just a mere book blogger, I don’t have access to that information.
