[Teaser Tuesdays] Still Alice



Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two "teaser" sentences from that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! You don't want to ruin the book for others!
* Share the title and author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

I am currently reading Still Alice by Lisa Genova and for this week’s teaser I chose this opening paragraph:

Even then, more than a year earlier, there were neurons in her head, not far from her ears, that were being strangled to death, too quietly for her to hear them. Some would argue that things were going to be insidiously wrong that the neurons themselves initiated events that would lead to their own destruction. Whether it was molecular murder or cellular suicide, they were unable to warn her of what was happening before they died.

I love this paragraph … it sets the mood for what’s to come later in the story.

Well...that's really intriguing. Murder on the cellular level is new to me. I'll be interested to see what you think of this one.

That was such a fabulous book! So glad you're reading it. I'm looking forward to read what you thought of it :D

And you should definitely read The Catcher in the Rye, it's fun that we got the same result :D
