Friday Book Beginnings
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 would like, 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 at A Few More Pages every Friday and will be open for the entire week.
>The doctor with whom I discussed the question told me to begin my work with a historical analysis of my smoking habit.
From Zeno's Conscience
Very good first sentence.
