Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading. If you like, share with everyone why you do, or do not, like the sentence.
My beginning this week comes from Room by Emma Donoghue:
Today I'm five.
Such a short sentence, but those three words tell the reader that the narrator of the story is a child. As I'm almost finished with this truly amazing novel, I can also say that this simplicity is present throughout the book yet it seems that each word is chosen to pack an emotional punch.
