“184.108.40.206.025: The cucumber and the tomato are both fruit; the avocado is a nut. To assist with the dietary requirements of vegetarians, on the first Tuesday of the month a chicken is officially a vegetable.”
– Page 46 of Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde-
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!
I love this teaser. 🙂 I loved these little snippets throughout the book.
How are you liking Shades of Grey?
I love it. Still have quite a bit left, but really enjoying it.
Fforde at his anarchist best! 😀 I´ve got to get this book. Are you enjoying it so far?
I’m really enjoying it. Wish I had more time so I could finish it.
I really love his little snippets at the beginning of each chapter. This one was especially delightful. I’m off to have my vegetarian lunch (a chicken sandwich).
That’s one of the things I like about all of Fforde’s books.
Nice teaser! I liked the last part “on the first Tuesday of the month a chicken is officially a vegetable” very much! I have to really get started on Jasper Fforde now 🙂
Yes – I was very excited to learn I could do that.
