Friday Firsts: A Deadly Affection by Cuyler Overholt
Friday Firsts is a new meme that runs every Friday over on Tenacious Reader. The idea is to feature the first few sentences/paragraph of your current book and try and outline your first impressions as a result. This is a quick and easy way to share a snippet of information about your current read and to perhaps tempt others. Stop on by and link up with Tenacious Reader. My book this week is A Deadly Affection by Cuyler Overheat
‘The first Sunday of 1907 was so bitterly cold that icicles were hanging from the watering trough spouts in front of Mr Fuller’s house, and the sanitation men had resorted to chipping, rather than scooping, the manure from the street. I barely felt the chill, however, as I walked east across town, warmed by long-simmering anticipation. The months of preparation were finally over. Today, my experiment would begin.’
My First Impressions
What is this experiment! Colour me intrigued. And, ew, chipping manure from the street! Why, just why? Only kidding. I like the start of this one and looking forward to seeing how it pans out.
What are you reading right now? Did it start out strong? Feel free to join in.
