Friday Firsts: The White Road by Sarah Lotz

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.    This Friday I’m reading : The White Road by Sarah Lotz.

whiteroadHi T.

No easy way to say this, but I’m going back to Tibet.  Yeah.  Back to the mountain, though I swore I never would, remember?  Leave for Heathrow in 5.  How’s that for casually dropping a bombshell?  I’ve tried everything else, T, and going back is the only way.  Got to the point where it’s this or a padded cell.

If I don’t make it home, there’s a dropbox file you should check out.  Sounds ominous, I know, like I’ve gone full B-movie: If you’re reading this then I’m already dead…. Password is ‘fingersinyrheart06’.  Anyway, read it.  Or not.  Up to you.  Do whatever you want with it.  Just needed to tell the truth.  Put the record straight, you know?

Farewell and adieu, mate.


So long, and thanks for all the fish.  Si


My First Impressions

Wow, what an excellent start.  Yes, I was anxious to read on.  I’ve read Sarah Lotz before and she’s very good.  This book just really appealed to me and the start really struck a chord.  I like books that start like this I must admit.  And, yes, I’ve read on – I can barely put this down and even when I do it’s still on my mind.

What you reading this Friday??  What are your first impressions??

    Great start, indeed: the surface mood sounds flippant, but there are darker undercurrents that hint at something ominous… 🙂 Looking forward to your review!

    Woah, okay yeah, what a compelling opening! This isn’t the sort of story that would normally appeal to me but I’m definitely intrigued.
