Teaser Tuesday - Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis

I found this book at a Christian bookshop in Ochanomizu. It's quite expensive (compared to the other books I've bought since I've came here anyway), but I can't resist C.S. Lewis! Especially since I haven't read this before. So, here's today's teaser:

"And because it was so beautiful, it set me longing, always longing. Somewhere else there must be more if it. Everything seemed to be saying, Pysche come! But I couldn't (not yet) come and I didn't know where I was to come to. It almost hurt me." (page 74)

I know it's more than 2 sentences, but I couldn't stop at two! (plus, it wouldn't have made sense).

What are your teasers?


  1. That's a lovely teaser. I've not read any of CS. Lewis's adult stuff. Here's mine: Small Blonde Hippy

  2. Good teaser!

    Here's ours: http://www.ourstack.blogspot.com/2012/06/tuesday-teasers-playing-dead-and-gone.html

  3. I had to read this book for one of my university English classes and it's been a favorite of mine ever since. Thanks for sharing this teaser and reminding me it's been too long since I did a reread. I hope you enjoy it.

    I hope you'll stop by to check out my teaser.

  4. Lovely snippet...and great cover! Congrats on finding it.


  5. I haven't read this one, but I definitely like your teaser. Just the rhythm of the words makes me want to read more!
    My teaser this week is from The Lie.

  6. C S Lewis is a beautiful writer :) I wouldn't have been able to resist either! Love the tease...

    My 1st TT is on my blog: http://maryellenbrady.com/2012/06/11/teaser-tuesday-earth-by-shauna-granger/

    1. Hey! I'm sorry, but I can't seem to post a comment on your blog, I keep getting an error message :/

      But your teaser sounds good! But it also reminds me a bit of Spirit's Princess, which is about Himiko, an mythological Japanese figure.



I really do appreciate all comments, and I'll try my best to reply within 24 hours!
