Friday Firsts: Certain Dark Things by Silvio Moreno-Garcia

FridayFirsts

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.

‘Collecting garbage sharpens the senses.  It allows us to notice what others do not see.  Where most people would spy a pile of junk, the rag-and-bone man sees treasure: empty bottles that might be dragged to the recycling centre, computer innards that can be reused, furniture in decent shape.  The garbage collector is alert.  After all, this is a profession.’

      It is a lovely cover – very eye catching and would definitely make me want to pick it up off the shelves.

    Mmmmm… and what will the garbage collector find that will fire up this story?
    Inquiring minds want to know! 🙂

      Well, we’ll just have to see now! It is an intriguing start though.

    I don’t like the subject, but the writing peeked my curiosity. I’m already thinking that person is going to find something dark in the garbage…. :-0
