First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros ~ Treasure Island!!! Sara Levine


Every Tuesday, I'll be posting the opening paragraph (maybe two) of a book I decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s). Feel free to grab the banner and play along. This week's "intro" is from a book that will be released in December.

(Europa - Tonga Books)

"In the aftermath of my adventure, I decided to write down the whole thing, starting with my discovery of TREASURE ISLAND and keeping nothing back, not even the names of the friends and family members whose problems plagued me; and so even though I'd love to go into the other room and stab someone with a kitchen knife, I take up my pen--a nifty micro-ball which had been incorrectly capped and would have dried out had I not, at the crucial moment, found it and restored its seal."

(Intro quote has been take from review copy)

What do you think? I'm thinking that this sounds quirky enough to have the entertainment factor I need with hectic holiday times approaching.

  10. I sure want to know more. I don't mind quirky as long a quirky doesn't equal weird.
