Friday Book Beginnings

From A Few More Pages:
How to participate: There's nothing quite like the anticipation that comes from cracking open a book for the first time! 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.

Title: The Keep
Author: Jennifer Egan

"The castle was falling apart, but at 2am under a useless moon, Danny couldn't see this."

I think it's a good start. I'm intrigued by old castles so right away I'm interested in hearing more about it.


  1. I read this one a few years ago. Intriguing...although some of it was better than other parts.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. I'm like you Elspeth. I like old castles. This beginning definitely has me interested! Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings!

  3. An atmospheric opening. A novel with a castle in it would interest me.
