Teaser Tuesday #2

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Mizb at Should Be Reading.  To participate, you need to:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be careful not to include spoilers
  • Share the title and author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser
This week's teaser comes from:

A Place to Die: An Inspector Georg Büchner Mystery

"Well done, Herr Pokorny," she said.

"Ah yes," he said.  "The triumphs of old age.  We go back to the congratulatory phase of infant toilet training."

When I first read this passage, I found it humorous.  The more I thought about it, though, the more ironic it became to me.  Instead of some people aging gracefully, why do some seem to revert back to infantile stages of life?  Isn't that somewhat humiliating for them?  To have been once strong and able-bodied only to have that removed from you ... it is sad.

I will have a review of this book soon.  What I can say about it right now is that you really should get a copy (you can click the cover above to purchase one).

Happy Reading! =)
