First Lines Friday

It’s been a long time since I’ve done this tag, but it’s always been fun and I have nothing to do, so here we go! I’ll write down the first lines, write what I think about them and then reveal the book at the end!

The man billed as Prospero the Enchanter receives a fair amount of correspondence via the theater office, but his is the first envelope addressed to them that contained a suicide note, and it is also the first to arrive carefully pinned to the coat of a five-year-old girl.

What a start! I think this is something I probably think every time I think about the first lines of book: I hate lame beginnings. There are some books that start very slow by describing a scene, a feeling or a person, but I like it when the action begins right away.

The first page is the most important one. Read it, and if you like what you read, get the book.

my dad every time I’m unsure whether to get a book

And it’s true. If I like the start, there’s a good chance I’ll like the book. That doesn’t mean that good books always have a good start, just that it won’t be likely I’ll continue and get to experience the greatness.

Anyways, this first paragraph is intriguing. A suicide letter pinned to the coat of a little girl? Sounds like a great mystery to solve. Enough said, here’s the book!

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is a book I’v wanted to read for a long time. A lot of people have told me they loved it, along with the cashier at Waterstones who said it was her favorite book, and so I’m really excited to pick it up soon. The synopsis sounds like there’s a lot of suspense and mystery going on and the first lines are no disappointment!

I hope you enjoyed this small post and have a great day!
