From Rose City Reader:
“Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.”
So, I’m going to be showing you the first line of Good Omens which may not be that impressive because just about everyone is reading it due to it have a short series on Amazon Prime. BUT! This is my first impression of it, without seeing the short series, so this will be fun!
“It was a nice day.
All the days had been nice. There had been rather more than seven of them so far, and rain hadn’t been invented yet. But clouds massing east of Eden suggested that the first thunderstorm was on its way and it was going to be a good one.”
– Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
This is a great first line/paragraph for a book about the Apocalypse. When the world is going to end, then you need to start your story at the beginning. And from what I’ve read so far, this is going to be a great book and I’m excited to watch the short series soon after I get done reading.
Have you seen Good Omens yet? Have you read it? Comment below and let me know!
