Book Beginnings: A Game of Thrones
Every Friday Rose City Reader hosts Book Beginnings on Fridays. What you do is share the opening line(s) of the book you are currently reading and briefly discuss what you think about the opening line or the book or whatever else inspires you. Make sure to share your entry with Rose City Reader and in my comments below.
Here's my book beginning:
" 'We should start back,' Gared urged as the woods began to grow dark around them. 'The wildlings are dead.' "
-A Game of Thrones, by George R.R. Martin
An ominous opening. I'm a little more than 150 pages into the book and I'm enjoying it so far. There are a lot of characters and a lot of events, but I think I've got a grasp on most of it now.
