"I want to tell you some important things before we start our journey.
I lived through it all. That's one problem about relating events in first person. The reader knows the narrator didn't get killed. So whatever might happen to me - whatever did happen to me - you can be sure I lived through it all, although I might be a little better or worse for the experience, and you can make up your own mind which."
by Robert McCammon
A week or two ago, I previewed the first fifty pages of our next book club selection. I was unfamiliar with Robert McCammon, but was almost instantly reminded of Pat Conroy - definitely a good thing! Now it's time to begin reading in earnest.
Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the opening paragraph (sometime two) of a book she decided to read based on the opening paragraph(s). Feel free to grab the banner and play along.
