It is Tuesday (I think) so it must be time for Teaser Tuesdays!  My teaser is from "Past Imperfect" by Julian Fellows of "Downton Abbey" fame. 

"Of course you want so much to say that.  Or at the very least to tell them to grow up or drop dead, or to open their eyes to the fact that the Fifties are over."

I have been reading this book for an eternity.  I am intrigued by the premise of the book.  The storyline is catchy.  The setting is lovely and the narrative just goes on and on and on.  It is a good read but I am not enjoying it -- it is draggy -- but I can't just drop it.  I am over half done and would feel terrible if I didn't discover the information that Damien Baxter is looking for but.....gosh I wish it would hurry up!

I looked at this one somewhere (maybe Barnes & Noble?) and remember thinking it seemed interesting. But it was just too many pages - I knew I'd probably be reading it for months! I really need to do something about my reading speed. I do like that teaser, though - but who's he telling to drop dead?

I truly enjoyed this book. Hope it picks up the pace for you.

JLS Hall -- it is a good read but it is not a quick read. It is really interesting that it takes place currently with back story in the 60's. I identify with that ok but it is just such involved reading. I don't want to give up though because I really want to know the outcome! He is making a statement about all his friends from the 50's living in the past.

Pooch -- I am enjoying it but it is going slowly. However, not ready to give up yet and figure I will be glad, in the end that I stuck it out.
