At midnight the visitors left, the public fiesta scattered into smoldering embers, and COusin Hildebranda lent Fermina Daza a madapollam nightgown and helped her lie down in a bed with smooth sheets and feather pillows, and without warning she was filled with the instantaneous panic of happiness.

  2. Picking a teaser from Márquez, there is so much choice, it’s all written so sublimely…it makes me want to read this again now even though I just started A Game of Thrones.

  3. Hmmm.,, what an interesting teaser. There is such beautiful imagery in those few sentences! I’m interested in knowing what your final thought on the book is. 🙂

    Here is my Teaser Tuesday if you want to stop by!

  5. I finished ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE last week (used it for last week’s teaser), so wish you lots of luck finishing this one. I think it will be a good long while before I attempt anything more by this author. Thanks for visiting!

    • Thanks Heather. I didn’t check on the teasers last week. I was told about this book by the same person who told me about Pride & Prejudice 🙂
