The dawn was so calm that he couldn’t make sense of the frantic desire he felt to breathe. He untangled his hands from the blanket’s tight cocoon with nightmarish inefficiency, then flung them toward his head, where it lay, exposed to the elements on a bare slab of rock. His mouth and nose were sculpted shut beneath a smooth mask of ice. Mortenson tore the ice free and took his first deep, satisfying breath. Then he sat up, laughing at himself. - pg 17

Teaser Tuesdays' Rules

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!

I was like .. oh my gosh! Is he FROZEN? and then he laughs .. so totally a great teaser, mainly because it's confusing .. or maybe that's because it's late at night and I really SHOULD be asleep! LOL! I love the cover on this one too! My teaser is from Dismantled by Jennifer McMahon: http://jewelknits.blogspot.com/2010/11/teaser-tuesdays-november-9-2010.html

Such a vivid language. Am wondering which novel starts like this. You say the genre is memoir, so is it a real story? The man is really frozen?
