Teaser Tuesday: 'Where Angels Fear to Tread'

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. I chose this book because I am simply in love with the title of it and I quite like the author. I still haven't started reading it though which makes me slightly sad. Do you ever have that feeling when you see a book you have wanted to read and just haven't found the time? Almost as if you are neglecting one of your children! Anyways, here are two teasers from 'Where Angels Fear to Tread' by E.M. Forster.
Where Angels Fear to Tread (Forster novel) 1st edition cover.jpg
“He. Her. If you don’t look out he’ll murder you. I wish he would.”“Tut tut, tutlet! You’d find a corpse extraordinarily inconvenient.” Then he tried to be less aggravating. “I heartily dislike the fellow, but we know he didn’t murder her."
P.78
I decided this wasn't a spoiler because it says nothing about who's dead and who might have killed her. It does sound very interesting though and I can imagine a corpse would be very inconvenient.
'Naturally she was not greatly interested. She had not come from Sawston to guess why he had been to Poggibonsi. She answered politely that she had no idea, and returned to her mission.'

P.104
I love the idea of this woman just sitting there, waiting for the guy to finish with his babbling so she can continue with whatever she came for. You sometimes see that when you go to restaurants and you can see first dates failing, with the guy still talking about footbal and the girl just sitting there, wanting to get out of the restaurant and hang with her friends.


So, what are you teasing with this week?

  6. I get sad all the time when there is book I really want to read, but never seem to really be in the mood to read it. Then I see it on my shelf and feel guilty, like I'm letting down the characters or something.
