Teaser Tuesdays - The Chrysalids

 


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading .

Quote two sentences from the book you're currently reading:

'I didn't know,' I told her. 'I'd no idea she was one of us.'
Rosalind put her hands to her face, finger-tips on her temples. She shook her head slightly and looked at me from disturbed eyes.
'She isn't,' she said. 'Something like us, but not one of us. None of us could command like that. She's something much more than we are.'

The Chyrsalids by John Wyndham, page 76

  20. great choice... think I just got a bit goose pimply! Mines not nearly as scary. Think I got a bit carried away with the teaser bit. Its a bit of a sexy sounding one... Have a look!
