Book beginnings on Friday: March 11th 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.
This week I’m back with a series I’ve been following for a while. The book is Changes (a novel of the Dresden Files) by Jim Butcher.
I answered the phone, and Susan Rodriguez said, “They’ve taken our daughter.”
I sat there for a long five count, swallowed, and said, “Um. What?”
“You heard me, Harry,” Susan said gently.
“Oh,” I said. “Um.”
“The line isn’t secure,” she said. “I’ll be in town tonight. We can talk then.”
Ooooh, I’m looking forward to this! It would be an interesting beginning in any other book, but as old Dresden files readers all know; Harry doesn’t have any children, that he knows of anyway…. and Susan is halfway to being a vampire….
