Teaser Tuesdays: Out Stealing Horses

Each week TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.

You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

Please avoid spoilers!

This week my teasers are from page 130 of OUT STEALING HORSES by Per Petterson.

All this that Franz talked to me about was news to me then, but I had no reason to doubt anything he said. Why he should tell me about those times, when my father had never done so, was a question I sat pondering as he talked on, but I did not know whether I could ask him that and have an answer I could live with, for he must certainly have thought I knew all about it already and was merely amused to hear another version.

This from sixty-seven year old Trond Sanders remembering back to when he was fifteen and learning things about his father for the first time.


  1. This is one of my all-time favorite Norwegian novels ... possibly one of my favorite novels all around. You can see my review here .

  2. Your teaser made me want to read the book. So, thanks - I hope. I've enjoyed reading your blog although this is the first time I've commented. Keep reading.

  3. Interesting teaser!

    :) Wendi

    Here's my teaser!

  4. Strumpet - Thanks for commenting and leaving the link! Please visit again!

    Margot - I'm so glad you left a comment! Welcome to Teaser Tuesdays!

    Wendi B - Thanks!

  5. Lisa, my neighborhood book group read this a few months ago. We had two books chosen that month, and I only read the other one (*The Big House*). It was interesting to sit in on a discussion of a book I hadn't read, and try to piece the story together.

    *Out Stealing Horses* remains on my wish list.

  6. i have been wanting to read this. Thanks for the teaser.

  7. I am definitely drawn in by that teaser and by the plot summary. I'll have to check it out, too.

  8. I picked this up one day from the library because of the title and cover and loved it!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I look forward to hearing from you again soon!
