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.
