Book Beginnings on Friday


  Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme created by Becky at Page Turners, and is now hosted by Katy at A Few More Pages. 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.

  This week's beginning comes from The Finkler Question, by Howard Jacobson, winner of this year's Man Booker Prize:

He should have seen it coming.

  This sentence makes me want to read further -- what happened?  I'm not that far into the novel yet, so I still have no idea what it is that he should have seen coming.


  1. This is an interesting first line! Very intriguing!

    Thanks for participating today! Sorry my link-up didn't publish when it was supposed to earlier today. I'll add your post to my link-up right now. :)

  2. That is a great opener, actually, because now I'm really curious as to what's going on. What is coming, and why should he have seen it?


    Here's mine, just posted:

What do you think? Good or bad, I'd love to hear from you (but be nice - I'm sensitive!)
