Each Tuesday, Vicki, from I’d Rather Be At The Beach hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where readers post the opening paragraph (sometime two) of a book they are reading or that they plan to read. Here's an except from a book I've been looking forward to. What do you think?
The River; Peter Heller
Knopf - 2019
"They had been smelling smoke for two days.
At first they thought it was another campfire and that surprised them because they had not heard the engine of a plane and they had been traveling the string of long lakes for days and had not seen sign of another person or even the distant movement of another canoe. The only tracks in the mud of the portages were wolf and moose, otter bear."
What do you think? It's been getting some great reviews.
