Book Beginnings: May 25, 2012

This meme is hosted by Rose City Reader

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 at Rose City Reader every Friday.

I've heard good things about this book so am really glad that my book group chose to read it. It's due this coming Thursday so I hope to delve into soon!

"On moonless nights the men and boys of Jableh, a dusty fishing town on the coast of Syria, would gather their lanterns and set out in their quietest boats."

Dave Eggers is so good; I hope that this is a "story well told." I do like the opening. I feel like he is painting a picture.
