Teaser Tuesday

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!

My Teasers:

"For, until the arrival of the French in the second half of the ninetenth century, Cambodians whether royalty or commoners knew virtually nothing of the distant past. Angkor, it is true, had remained a site for Buddhist pilgrimage and the distinctive towers of its most famous temple, Angkor Wat, had appeared on a coin struck during King Ang Duang's reign in the middle of the nineteenth century. But no-one in the kingdom had known why the temples of Angkor had been built nor who had ruled there."

~ p. 43, "Sihanouk: Prince of Light, Prince of Darkness" by Milton Osborne  

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks! :D
