I guess the idea was to see what you could guess about other people’s reading material by reading a random sentence.
For example, from my friend’s random sentence, it was obvious that her book was about childhood allergies.
I thought, why not?
So I grabbed the book I’ve been attempting to read for the past few days.
It’s touted on the cover as “an international bestseller” and “an absorbing thriller steeped in history.”
I say I’ve been “attempting” to read it because I’ve been having trouble paying attention to this book. For a thriller, it’s not particularly thrilling. It’s a little…dare I say it? Boring. However, I hesitate to throw a book aside until I‘m sure I’ve given it a chance.
Here’s the random sentence:
“Well, you are only sixteen,” said Talleyrand, inhaling the aroma of the brandy in his snifter and taking a sip. “There will be time for many experiences.”
Not exactly what I’d like to post on my face book page as exemplifying my taste in reading.
I guess I’ll have to officially give up on this one.
Time to move on.
