My Own Third Sentence Thursday

Third Sentence Thursday

So, umm yeah, I just discovered this cool thing from Joross' post and decided that I could perhaps follow.

Third Sentence Thursday is a wekkly meme hosted by Sniffly Kitty Mostly's Books. It's just pretty simple, you get a book a book and post the sentence here, give review then *poof* that's it. I found it cool because it makes your mind sort of stimulate to delve deeper

For more information about this, click me.

So here's my Third Sentence:

"I'd sneak into camp, find Madam Octa, grab her, and run."
- Darren Shan from "Cirque du Freak: A Living Nightmare"


It is from the book entitled, "Cirque Du Freak: A Living Nightmare" written by Darren O'Shaughnessy under the pen name of Darren Shan. It is about the struggle of a boy (also Darren Shan) in the world of vampires.

REACTION:


Well, first and foremost I would just like to tell you that I could have opted for another sentence because the one above is just weird. I just went to the page where I read last although I wasn't quite sure that I haven't read this sentence yesterday. I just discovered about this book series called "The Saga of Darren Shan" (Cirque du Freak in some countries) and I decided that i might as well read something I haven't read before.

Anyway, Cirque du Freak means (if i am correct) "Circus of Freaks" in French. This Circus, although banned because it's "dangerous, travelled to cities to have shows. To make things faster and to avoid that I might bore you, Darren Shan and his friend went to this show. One of the freaks featured was Larten Crepsley, a freak who could "manipulate" his spider weirdly named "Madam Octa."

Darren Shan is a boy who is very fond of spiders and that is how that third sentence came. He wanted to steal Madam Octa from that creepy Crepsley guy (who turned out to be a vampire in hiding) because Darren wanted to also control that arachnid.

In reality, I just don't know if Darren has eaten spider or maybe a spider just ate his brains out that he really wanted to have that spider, much more steal it. I just found this weird, very weird. Well, I am not yet finish with that book so please do not spoil me the thrill and I still eerily excited of how on earth Darren is going to steal that eight-legged creature from a creepy Crepsley vampire guy.
