Teaser Tuesday - The Supernatural Enhancements by Edgar Cantero


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of  Should Be Reading.
Anyone can participate. just do the following.
Rules:
• 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! 

This week's teaser comes from The Supernatural Enhancements by Edgar Cantero published August 12, 2014 by Doubleday. It's a bit of a ghost story and a mystery. So far it reminds me a little of Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher, H.P. Lovecraft, and Stephen King's The Shining.

Niamh and A. are adopting a dog. Niamh is mute, but not deaf. A. tells her to choose the dog. This is their resulting conversation. A. is referred to as Guy in this bit of writing and Niamh as girl on p.41.

Guy: I like him. What are you going to call him? 

(The girl retrieves from under her pullover a small notepad and a short pencil on a string around her neck; she writes.)

- Your choice - I'm not calling him.

There is humor in the book from time to time even though it mostly is supernatural, horror and mystery. So far I'm enjoying the book. What's your teaser this week? Leave it or a link in the comments. I'll check it out. Happy Reading!

    1. It's really a different sort of book. A lot of it is told in letters and descriptions of videos they take inside the house. Thanks for coming by!

    1. Yours sounds interesting and potentially heartbreaking. The mother can't stay there? How is she leaving and why is she leaving her daughter behind? Just wondering,...
