Teaser Tuesdays (1)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
 Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  4. 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!)
  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I'm currently reading the second book in the Silo series by the amazing Hugh Howey and am on the 33rd chapter so you are getting the quotes from earlier pages of the book because I too wanted to avoid spoilers. Hope you like them.

    ‘Get through the next six months,’ Merriman said. ‘It goes by fast. It all goes by fast.’
     Troy nodded. The doctor shooed him away with his eyes while Merriman began tugging off his boots. Troy turned, gave the heavy door down the hall one last glance, then headed in the other direction for the lift.
     He hoped Merriman was right. Jabbing the button to call the express, he tried to imagine his entire shift flashing by. And the one after that. And the next one. Until this insanity had run its course, little thought to what came after. 
   ‘It’s the bad stuff,’ Hal said, staring off towards the lifts. ‘Have you noticed that? It’s just the bad stuff that slips away. All the unimportant things, we remember well.’
   Troy didn't say anything. He jabbed his beans, even though he didn't plan on eating them.
    ‘It makes you wonder, don’t it? Why we all feel so rotten inside?’
   Hal finished up his food, nodded a wordless goodbye and got up to leave. Troy was left alone. He found himself staring at the screen, a dull ache inside that he wouldn't name. It was the time of evening just before the hills disappeared, before they darkened and faded into the cloud-filled sky.
I picked these two quotes because I think they can attract a reader to start reading the Silo series, because it is unlike any other, unique in it's own way. But that is just my opinion.
