First Line Fridays

https://hoardingbooksblog.wordpress.com/

This week’s first line is from…

Life of Pi

by Yann Martel

 “My suffering left me sad and gloomy.

Academic study and the steady, mindful practice of religion slowly brought me back to life.”

 

This book was the January pick for my book club but is one I have wanted to read for a while anyway. So far, I’m finding it quite enjoyable.

  2. Happy Friday!

    My first line(s) is from the Prologue in Susan May Warren’s new book Troubled Waters, which I finished last night:

    “Oh, this was a bad idea. Epically, abysmally, horrendously bad.”

  3. Welcome Nancy, Happy to see you here. I don’t recognize the author. “A mindful practice of religion” wondering what the author means.

    • So far it’s quite interesting. He seems to practice all religions taking whatever he feels benefits his piece of mind. He also grew up in the zoo his father ran in India so there are all kind of animal stories involved as well. Happy reading!
