Teaser Tuesday (October 14) - As You Wish by Cary Elwes

What is teaser tuesday?

It's a meme hosted by Should Be Reading and here are the 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! 

"And while a leap of faith would be required to presume that the other characters in the film (most notably Buttercup) would not immediately spot the resemblance between Westley and the Man in Black, the audience was free to make the connection (which of course, they did). Still, it had to look right. Despite going to great lengths to create dozens of perfect masks, the makeup department still wound up having to use dark makeup around my eyes in some scenes to create a seamless transition between mask and skin, much like what I understand they do with all the folks who play Batman." 
-As You Wish, Pages 38-39, by Cary Elwes. 

Also, I'm hosting a contest on Twitter for a book of your choice! If you follow me at Twitter.com/Cornucopiaofluv and retweet the contest you're entered to win!

Before I read the title I was thinking Zorro. Sounds like a fun read.

I love learning what went on "behind the scenes" of my favourite movies! I should definitely read this! =D

Suzie Quint said...

I loved both the book and the movie but I didn't know this was out there. Thanks for the heads up. My TT is for The Fault in Our Stars

Sounds like an interesting behind-the-scenes look at a delightful movie. I'll read this one.
My Tuesday post features WAR BRIDES.

Funny I was just talking about Chris Sarandon today and how much I loved the Princess Bride! Here is my TT http://newpaperadventures.blogspot.com/2014/10/teaser-tuesday-october-14.html

Oh I love this! That sounds like it would be so much fun to read. I love when movies give behind the scenes information, so it must be even cooler and more in depth in book form. Great pick!!
