Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should Be Reading. Here's how you play:

* 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!

My teaser:
No gossip about Mr. Casaubon's will had yet reached Ladislaw: the air seemed to filled with the dissolution of Parliament and the coming election, as the old wakes and fairs were filled with the rival clatter of itinerant shows; and more private noises were taken little notice of. The famous "dry election" was at hand, in which the depths of public feeling might be measured by the low flood-mark of drink.
~ taken from about 59% ebook format (Kindle), Middlemarch by George Eliot

Interesting teaser. I am guessing there is a lot of intrigue going on behind the scenes. I've never been able to read through an entire Eliot book, and I feel guilty about that. One of these days I will try again. Hope you're enjoying the read!

If you'd like, you can check out my teaser here.
