Book Beginnings on Friday 2nd July

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners.  All you have to do is share the opening sentence of you current read making sure that you share the title and author so others know what you are reading.

Mine for this week comes from "Bliss" by Peter Carey.  Yes I am still reading this book.  And while I believe that it's beginning could arguably be one of the best book beginnings in the land, getting through the rest of this novel is starting to wreck my head.

Harry Joy was to die three times, but it was his first death which was to have the greatest effect on him, and it is this first death which we shall now witness.


  1. That is a very good opening sentence. It certainly grabs the attention.

  2. Wow, that's great opening sentence! I'm intrigued!

  3. O wow. I'm intrigued too! Great choice :)

  4. Oh, wow, now that makes me want to know more!

    Here's mine:

  5. Fantastic opening sentence. One just has to read more! My Book Beginning is here. Happy reading!

  6. Wow, that's a good one. How can he die 3 times ?

    Mine's here.

  7. That opening sentence sounds amazing, exactly my type of book. I hope you make it through to the end, I know Carey can be a hard author. I will look forward to your review
