At Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader, you share the first line, and a few thoughts about the book.
Today I'm featuring Someone by Alice McDermott. Here's the beginning.
I've had to read and re-read a lot of the first chapter. I just kept feeling as if I'd missed so much. Eventually on about page 40, I stopped doing that, and now it's going more smoothly. Fortunately it's a little book, so I'm sure I won't take that long to finish.
At Freda's Voice, you'll find the Friday56, where the excerpt comes from page 56 or 56% in your Kindle.
Here's page 56.
I'm only this far into the book. I particularly love this scene between Mary and her mother. What do you think? Would you keep reading?
What are you reading this weekend? Leave me a comment with what you're featuring and I'll check it out.
