Teaser Tuesday (4)

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should be Reading.


Here are the rules:
  • 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!


My teaser is from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. (This is about the Vogons.)

The fact that they did is some kind of tribute to the thick-willed slugbrained stubbornness of these creatures. Evolution? they said to themselves, Who needs it?, and when nature refused to do for them they simply did without until such time as they were able to rectify the gross anatomical inconveniences with surgery.

XD. I'm loving this book so far.

What are your teasers?

I read this book in my late teenage years and absolutely loved it!

Might be time to reread it!

Great teaser! I love this book. Douglas Adams was an amazing author. My favourite of his books is 'Last Chance to See'. I've read that one a gazillion times.

Haven't read any of Douglas Adams' books, but I loved the old TV adaptation of the Hitchhiker's Guide. Guess I really should read the book, too. Excellent teaser!

Um, wv: chillbel?

On a "hatch"? I'm not quite sure what you mean there . . .
