This week I'm featuring an intro from a book that I just started.
(Harper Collins 2013)Martin -- Los Angeles, 2010
"THE MERE THOUGHT of him brought comfort. They believed he could do anything, and that he protected them.
He listened to their troubles without speaking.
He performed his duties when they were asleep, when he could think about his life the way a child stands in front of the sea. Always rising at first light, he filled his bucket, then swished along the corridors with pine soap and hot water. There were calluses where he gripped the handle. The bucket was blue and difficult to carry when full. The water got dirty quickly, but it didn't annoy him. When it was done, he leaned his mop against the wall and went into the garden."
Have you read this one? What do you think? Would you keep reading? (i just started this one, but the writing is beautiful).
