Teaser Tuesdays #7 – August 5th: Lord Of The Flies

teasertuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme originally featured at Should Be Reading. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

The book I’m currently reading is Lord Of The Flies by William Golding for the Dusting Off The Shelf Read-A-Thon. I started it yesterday to fulfill the ‘read a classic’ part of the read-a-thon, and I’m not too far into the book yet. I hope to read quite a few pages though today! Below a quote taken from one of its pages:

flies“Slowly the silence on the mountain-top deepened till the click of the fire and the soft hiss of roasting meat could be heard clearly. Jack looked round for understanding but found only respect. Ralph stood among the ashes of the signal fire, his hands full of meat, saying nothing.”
