Teaser Tuesdays – October 21, 2008

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

1. Grab your current read.

2. Let the book fall to a random page.

3. Share with us two teaser sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.

4. Share the title of the book.

5. Avoid spoilers.

Here goes:

“Even Amnesty International didn’t keep statistics on how many women around the world were victims of honor killings. They could tell you how many men were imprisoned and tortured, but they couldn’t keep tabs on the number of women flogged in public for fornication, or executed for adultry.”

Infidel, by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Yes, I am STILL reading this. I have not had time to read at all but I am really liking it. Well, as much as you can like a book with this subject matter.

  1. It’s ok to like books that have unpleasant subjects. It’s not the same as saying you support or promote more of the badness of the subject – just the writing about it and the awareness/learning, right? But I know what you mean…

  2. bkclubcare – Yes, I see what you are saying. There is definately a difference.dar – I have to wait for my book club to meet in Nov before I can post the review. I promised them no more reviews beforehand.
