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.
Update: I finished the novel this morning and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's fast paced and well written in a style that makes it easy to read. Some have complained about the ending but for me it worked well and I keep thinking about it. Rating: 4 out of 5.
