Book Beginnings: The Perks of Being a Wallflower
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:
"August 25, 1991
I am writing to you because she said you listen and understand and didn't try to sleep with that person at that party even though you could have."
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower, by Stephen Chbosky
I'm finally going to start this, though it does require prying A Clash of Kings from my hands. It looks like it is written as a series of letters, and the opening to the letter is interesting. After reading the unconventional ttyl books, written as instant messages, I guess I'm off to another unconventionally-written story. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
