Book Beginnings - 3/4/11



How to participate: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments. Include the title and the author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you feel so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence. The link-up will be here at A Few More Pages every Friday and will be open for the entire week.

Thanks to Becky at Page Turners for starting this meme and to Rose City Reader for inspiring it!

First Lines...  "His eyes still shut, a dream dissolving and already impossible to recall, Hector's hand sluggishly reached accross the bed. Good. Aish was up. He let out a victorious fart, burying his face deep into the pillow to escape the clammy methane stink."
My thoughts... Ok, this book is not likely going to be what I expected! The summary leads you to believe its a fairly deep, involved discussion of humans and their connections to family and friends.  Umm...maybe not so deep?!
The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas

Not just any fart. But a vigorous one. Lol.

You'll have to let us know how deep it turns out to be... I'm willing to be open-minded about deepness coexisting with farts :) but I DO understand your reaction!

LOL, yeah, that doesn't seem so deep.

Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings!
