Teaser Tuesday 8.17.10 – Ape House

“The picture froze. John stared at the final image for several seconds before realizing he was gaping.”

– p. 62* of Ape House by Sara Gruen –


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!

*Page numbers refer to the ARC and may differ in the final version.

    I’m interested to hear what you have to say about this, because the only person I’ve heard from so far HATED it.

      I like it so far. I’m only 50 pages in or so though.

    I will be interested to see what you think. I definitely hated it, but maybe I was just in a bad mood. Or something.

      Hmm. You hated it? Did you like Water for Elephants?


      • Topher August 20, 2010 / 4:45 pm

        Yeah, I hated it. 😦

        I never read Water for Elephants, but a lot of people have recommended it to me, and I think I’ll pick it up. I’ll be curious to see how you liked Ape House!
