Teaser Tuesday: Jane Eyre

by Notorious Spinks on 04.05.2011

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 either in the comments below or on your own blog (give a link to your blog so we can check it out!)

* 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 so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:

Something of vengeance I had tasted for the first time; as aromatic  wine it seemed, on swallowing, warm and racy: its after-flavour, metallic and corroding, gave me a sensation as if I had been poisoned.  Willingly would I now have gone and asked Mrs Reed’s pardon; but I knew, partly from experience and partly from  instinct, that was the way to make her repulse me with double scorn, thereby re-exciting every turbulent impulse of my nature.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
~p. 43

One of the advantages to growing up in Hollywood in the 1960s was that one was allowed a great deal of latitude as far as weirdness was concerned.
And at my house, weirdness was the order of the day.

Can you believe that I’ve never read Jane Eyre? Actually I’ve not read any Bronte. Yes, I am ashamed. Thanks for a great teaser.
