Teaser Tuesday – Huckleberry Finn

The Teaser Tuesday rules are:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) ‘œteaser’ sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’™re getting your ‘œteaser‘ from ‘¦ that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’™ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!
  • I’ve not followed all the rules for today’s Teaser because I haven’t opened Huckleberry Finn at random.

    I’m currently up to page 43 and as I didn’t want to open the book beyond where I’ve read, I opened it at page 43 at the bookmark. The two sentences I’ve picked between lines 7 and 12 are:

    ‘Have you got hairy arms and a hairy breast, Jim?’

    ‘What’s de use to ax dat question? don’ you see I has?’

    Jim first started to tell Huck what had happened to him on page 41 and I’m still finding it awkward reading what he says – I reck’n I’ll git used to it b’fo too long. Oh, and Jim says

    ‘Ef you’s got hairy arms en a hairy breas’, it’s a sign dat you’s agwyne to be rich’.

    There, I’ve broken the rules again – more than two sentences and one not in the right place!

    1. I loved this book! I listened on audio so that trying to read the dialog wouldn’t distract me. The man who read it was incredible! I can’t remember his name right off hand, but it’s in my review on my blog.

    2. I’m dying to know if you’ve read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society yet?? I just finished it. You have to get over the title holdback! It’s just wonderful. I know you’ll love it.

    3. Avinsannschild, sometimes random is just boring.
      Lezlie listening on audio is a very good idea.
      Joannie, no I haven’t read the Potato Peel book yet – if I see it in the library I will borrow it.
