Book Beginnings: A Storm of Swords
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:
"The day was grey and bitter cold, and the dogs would not take the scent."
-A Storm of Swords, by George R. R. Martin
That's the first line of the prologue, about as spoiler-free as it gets for those who haven't read either the first or second book. Reading further into the prologue you begin to realize the fact that the dogs don't take the scent does not bode very well. So far I'm 250 pages in and enjoying the book quite a bit.
Also, I'm hosting my first ever giveaway, for 3 copies of The Angels' Share. Make sure to check it out.
