Teaser Tuesday: The Club Dumas



"For Dumas, the history of France was a rich source of material.  His was an extraordinary trick: he'd leave the frame alone but alter the picture, mercilessly plundering the treasure that was offered to him."

-- The Club Dumas by Arturo Perez-Reverte. This is great fun already and I've only just started it. I can't wait to sink into the story.


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

  2. Here is my teaser from The Wolves of Andover by Kathleen Kent (Page 8):

    Martha saw it all clear in that moment: this was the instant her place in the family would be decided. If she lost her footing at the outset, she would forever be dealt with as no more than a servant.

  3. Good teaser from one of my favorite reads! I think I might have enjoyed it even more if I had actually read a little more Dumas.

  4. Lit Witch: I liked Krauss' History of Love book, so I'll come see the teaser from the new one.

    Tribute Books Mama: Great teaser! Thanks for sharing it.

    Joy: Glad to know you liked the book, because then I am pretty sure I will too. I have to spend time with it -- I keep reading at bed time and falling asleep, so I have only read 25 pages in three days.

  6. Sounds like the typical ploy of the historical fiction writer.
