Teaser Tuesdays – Neverwhere

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

I love Neil Gaiman’s tongue in cheek wit. Here’s a wonderful quote that had me chuckling.

There are four simple ways for the observant to tell Mr. Croup and Mr. Vandemar apart:

first, Mr. Vandemar is two and a half heads taller than Mr. Croup;

second, Mr. Croup has eyes of a faded china blue, while Mr. Vandemar’s eyes are brown;

third, while Mr. Vandemar fashioned the rings he wears on his right hand out of the skulls of four ravens, Mr. Croup has no obvious jewelery;

fourth, Mr. Croup likes words, while Mr. Vandemar is always hungry.

Also, they look nothing at all alike.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • 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!
