Teaser Tuesday: Lisey’s Story (again)

Teaser Tuesday post for 9 February 2016
from Lisey’s Story by Stephen King

There's a period of time--two weeks, maybe--when she goes on trying to believe that things are better.  Later she'll ask herself how she could be do stupid, so willfully blind, how she could mistake his frantic struggle to hold on to the world (and her!) for any kind of improvement, but of course when straws are all you have, you grasp them.

      It’s going to fit into the horror/suspense genre. I haven’t finished it yet.

    I haven’t read a Stephen King book in forever. This sounds awesome!

    Interesting that there are two different covers on your page — the one in the sidebar conveying a more sinister feeling than the one you’re using on your page. Intriguing teaser, too, and I love the last line about straws. Here’s my intro and teaser from Shilpi Somaya Gowda’s novel, Secret Sister: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1aM

      The cover on the sidebar is from the hardback, which I own. The one in the page is the paperback, which is the one more likely to be available through Amazon. I agree about the bright red cover being more ominous. The winter scene looks like a nice walk in the snowy woods, except for wondering why you’d have a shovel with you.

    Even though Stephen King’s stories are often too scary for me, I’ve enjoyed his writing in the ones I’ve been able to read. I like the way he turns around the phrase “grasping at straws” and makes it sound new.
    My Tuesday post features THE GIVER.
