Book Beginnings

Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Katy at A Few More Pages.
Anyone
can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read,
making sure that you include the title and author so others know what
you’re reading.
If you like, share with everyone why you do, or do not, like the sentence.

The Friday 56

The Friday 56

Rules:
  • Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
  • Turn to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post
    that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these
    instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the
    comments section of Freda’s Voice
  • Post a link along with your post back to Freda’s Voice
Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

French Lessons

French Lessons by Ellen Sussman
Book Beginnings:  Brilliant sunlight spills through the windows of the Vivre a la Francaise language school.  It has been raining for days — for weeks — and the sudden flash of sun through a break in the clouds causes everyone in the dreary office to stop for a moment and turn their faces toward the light.”
Friday 56:  “Then you should make your vowels more precise.”
I think the beginning is much better than the the 6th line on page 56.  Nothing wrong with the line, but taken out of context it really is random.

    Interesting setting for a book. The excerpts make me want to know more.

    I don’t find it random at all…. you should pronunciate your vowels properly.
    Thank you for participating!
