I'm this close to finishing From Away by David Carkeet. Here's the teaser:
Two hours later, he was closer to finding Homer's password only in the sense that he had eliminated a few dozen of the infinite number of candidates. The light was starting to fade.
Previously on Teaser Tuesday: I finished Fool which was good but not my favorite Christopher Moore novel (that would be A Dirty Job). I got the sense that Fool was a book he felt obliged to finish but that he really didn't like what it required him to do: follow King Lear around. In the Epilogue, he talks about seeing upteen productions of King Lear and wanting to push the guy off a cliff. Given that the fool in Lear is supposed to be one of Lear's only faithful companions, the fool in Fool can't seem to stand spending any time with him. That was a bit of a problem.
I found myself wishing that Moore hadn't followed his editor's advice (he'd asked this editor if he should write about a generic fool or the fool in Lear, and the editor had said Lear, absolutely). I found myself wishing Moore had written a different book. Ah well.
