Book Beginnings: February 2, 2012


This meme is hosted by Katy at A Few More Pages
How to participate: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading. Include the title and the author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you feel so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence. The link-up will be here at A Few More Pages every Friday.

My book group chose this one to read and I've had it on my list for a while so I am glad. It's a slim volume but I am having a really slow reading week.

"It screamed downward, splitting the air and sky without effort. A target expanded in size, brought into focus by time and velocity. There was a moment before impact that was the last instant of things as they were. Then the visible world exploded."

With such a powerful beginning, this is really a gentle read so far.
