Teaser Tuesday: Far from the Madding Crowd


Hosted by A Daily Rhythm, Teaser Tuesday is a bookish meme meant to highlight passages from books you are currently reading.

Here are the rules (as described by A Daily Rhythm):

  • 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!

My teaser this week comes from Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy. Yet another classic I’ve picked up for book club. So far I think it’s alright and I’ve made good progress. Check this out:

“Well — that is a tale!” said Oak, with dismay. “To run after anybody like this — and then say you don’t want me!”

And this:

“But there was no harm in hurrying to correct a piece of false news that had been told to you.”

Has this peaked your interest? Like reading classics?
