Teaser Tuesday – Velocity

I finished one book last night and started another today. Normally it takes some time to, I don’t know, dig into a new book. At least, I feel like it’s been that way for me lately… until today. I don’t know if it’s because the author is just that good or if it’s really because my son managed to blow through 7.5GB of data in 4 days, so I can’t use my data when I’m not on Wi-Fi which in turn means I have nothing to do on the train but read. It’s mostly likely a combination of the two, but whatever it is, I managed to read almost 100 pages today on my train rides to and from work.

I was worried I wouldn’t have a Teaser Tuesday today, but as it stands, I almost have too much to choose from!

It’s my first time reading Dean Koontz, but I have to say, I’m really digging his writing style. I keep pausing to enjoy wording and the way he manages to write a conversation without killing a person with “he said” “she said” annoyances. (Note: some are fine, but there are times when they begin to wear on a reader’s nerves and I finally realize why they say to use them sparingly.)

The book is Velocity. I grabbed a quote from page 39:

“In Billy Wiles’s opinion, Jackie would have made a fine priest. Every human being has appetites difficult to control, but far fewer have humility, gentleness, and an awareness of their weaknesses.”

  1. I have heard a lot of him but haven’t read any so far but your quote makes me re-decide…. not that my reading list is too short ;-). Thanks for sharing

  2. I am glad that you are reading a lot again. I just finished a book entitled “Earning Eternity” by Josi S Kilpack. What a delightful story. Have the rest of a great day.
