Teaser Tuesdays: Crime and Punishment


TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

Here's page 33 of Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky:

Almost from the first, while he read the letter, Raskolnikov's face was wet with tears; but when he finished it, his face pale and distorted and bitter, wrathful and malignant smile was on his lips. He laid his head down on his threadbare dirty pillow and pondered, pondered a long time.
