Book beginnings on Friday: March 4th 2011
Book Beginnings on Friday is a bookish meme sponsored by Katy at A Few More Pages.
Here’s what you do: share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments section . Include the title and author so we know what you’re reading. Then, if you are so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and if you liked or did not like that sentence. Link-up each week at Katy’s place.

After reading the first few lines I was still a bit non-committal. It’s always intriguing with someone who normally is in control loosing that control, but I wasn’t sure.
By the bottom of the second page I was completely hooked.
