Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted by Rose City Reader and as she says the idea of this meme is for you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name. There's a linky list on the website and you can use #BookBeginnings on Twitter.
My Book Beginning: Dog Blood (Hater #2) by David Moody
The cause of the Hate (as it had come to be known on both sides of the uneven divide) was irrelevant. At the very beginning, when the doubters had been forced to accept that something was really happening and that the troubles weren't just the result of media-fuelled, copycat mob violence, the usual raft of baseless explanations were proposed; scientists had screwed up in a lab somewhere, it was an evolutionary quirk, it was a virus, a terrorist attack, aliens or worse...
I read Hater, the first in the trilogy, earlier this month and couldn't wait to get hold of Dog Blood from the library to find out what happened next. It isn't often I read the next book in a series so quickly as normally I prefer to read lots of different types of books in between. I'm currently on page 209 and if it continues to be as good until the end I may even read the third book next.
