First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros ~ My Education; Susan Choi

Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where I share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?

This week I'm featuring an intro from a book that was just released, by a "new to me author".



July 3, 2013 - Viking

(Intro quote is from an eGalley)

"Since arriving the previous week I'd kept hearing about a notorious person and now as I entered the packed lecture hall my gaze caught on a highly conspicuous man.  That's him I declared inwardly, which of course was absurd.  It was a vast university, of thousands of souls. There was no reason these two kinds of prominence --scandalous noteworthiness, and exceptional, even sinister, attractiveness--must belong to the same human being.  Yet they had. The man was Nicholas Brodeur, though I knew it for sure only later."

  1. I'd read on - Nicholas Brodeur sounds an interesting, if dangerous character.

  14. A fun meme and I promise I will join in as soon as I start reading a new book. I have been slacking off in my book reading lately due in a large part to needing a stronger prescription in reading glasses. Your choice looked very interesting.
