Teaser Tuesday: The English Patient

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope you all had a happy safe Labor day, reveling in the last day of summer.

 Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • 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!

This week's comes from The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje pg 93

The English Patient
"The tales Hana had read to the English patient, traveling with the old wanderer in Kim or with Fabrizio in The Charterhouse of Parma, had intoxicated them in a swirl of armies and horses and wagons- those running away from or running towards a war. Stacked in one corner of his bedroom were other books she had read to him whose landscapes they have already walked through."

I just started so I don't have a major opinion yet. I guess time will tell.

We've been reading quite a few books lately that have been turned into movies (and are planning to have a moviethon next weekend to watch some of those, you're welcome to join in!) so this one definitely got my attention. I've only seen the movie in this case so I'm really interested in hearing your thoughts on the book after you're fininshed.

Our teaser for this week is here.

Is this based on the movie? I know that the movie received rave reviews, so I would be interested in how the book is.....

Julie- I believe it's the other way around, the movie is based on the book. I've never seen the movie but I'll be checking it out once I finish the book. I think it won some Oscars but maybe I'm mistaken.
