Teaser Tuesday: Good Omens

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 “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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:
Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (Discworld)
"Art thou a witch, oh lay?" said the Chief Inquisitor.
"Yes," said Pepper's little sister, who was six and built like a small golden-haired football.
"You mustn't say yes, you've got to say no," hissed the Head Torturer, nudging the suspect.
"And then what?" demanded the suspect.
"And then we torture you to make you say yes," said the Head Torturer. "I told you. It's good fun, the torturin'. It doesn't hurt. Hastar lar visa," she added quickly.
The little suspect gave the decor of the Inquisitorial headquarters a disparaging look. There was a decided odor of onions. - pg. 117, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (Discworld) by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

What are you reading this week?

I absolutely loved Good Omens. I actually reviewed that too, total five stars. Absolutely wonderful, and I want the hardcover so much. So far I only have a paperback though.
