Book beginnnings on Friday
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.
Thanks to Becky at Page Turners for starting this meme and to Rose City Reader for inspiring it.
Here is my teaser----
'The measurement of human emotions is not an exact science;there are very few remedies for real sorrow. Misery may be biological, born of some inherited uproar in the blood, or it may be circumstantial -- down to bad luck, heart-stopping loss, or the cruelty of others.'
page 1. 'The Final Act of Mr. Shakespeare.' by Robert Winder.
