Teaser Tuesday: The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood



This meme hosted by Should Be Reading, so stop by and check out her blog!

To participate:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers
But of course, I do things a little differently. Because I don't like giving you something random, but want instead something to actually tease you, I am going to give you a teaser from a book I have just read (with the full review to follow later in the week). So let's begin, shall we?


The Year of the Flood 
 
     As for writing, it was dangerous, said the Adams and the Eves, because your enemies could trace you through it, and hunt you down, and use your words to condemn you.
     But now that the Waterless Flood has swept over us, any writing I might do is safe enough, because those who would have used it against me are most likely dead.  So I can write down anything I want.
     What I write is my name, Ren, with an eyebrow pencil, on the wall beside the mirror.  I've written it a lot of times, Renrenren, like a song.  You can forget who you are if you're alone too much.  Amanda told me that.
     I can't see out the window, it's glass brick.  I can't get out the door, it's locked on the outside.  I still have air, though, and water, as long as the solar doesn't quit.  I still have food.
