Don’t look now, but my book today is the next one in the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon called “Voyager”. Please join me over at Book Beginnings hosted by Rose City Reader for this book and many others. Here are the first lines:
“He was dead. However, his nose throbbed painfully, which he thought odd in the circumstances.”
These lines won Ms. Gabaldon an award for the best opening lines and I can see why. Her writing is so descriptive and her books are so chocked full of facts woven in with the fiction that sometimes it makes you wonder which parts were based on real events and which ones weren’t. These books are addicting…once you start on Claire and Jamie’s adventure, you can’t stop until you have seen what happens next.
