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. This weekly meme is hosted by A Few More Pages every Friday. Check out their blog for a list of other book beginnings.

It has been sixty-four years since the president and the Consortium identified love as a disease, and forty three since the scientists perfected a cure. Everyone else in my family has had the procedure already.
A great beginning – rather spooky.
