Teaser Tuesday: The Enigma

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• 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!

So from one of Alan Turing’s teachers . . .

My Teasers:

He held that the defeat of German had come about ‘because she thought that Science and materialism were stronger than religious thought and observance.’ He called the scientific subjects ‘low cunning’, and would sniff and say, ‘This room smells of mathematics! Go out and a fetch a disinfectant spray!’

  1. Hi Sonia,

    Despite the fact this probably isn’t a book for me, I love those teaser lines, especially the part about the mathematics and the disinfectant. Never being my favourite subject at school, I can totally relate to this thought 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by Fiction Books and have a good week.

      1. One of them mentioned this morning that he skimmed a lot of the technical stuff, but didn’t think it really detracted from the book and not at all from his overall enjoyment of The Enigma.

Say something and make my day!
