First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - Mr. Nobody; Catherine Steadman

Each Tuesday, Vicki, from I’d Rather Be At The Beach hosts First Chapter 
First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where readers post the opening paragraph(s)
 of a book that they are reading or plan to read. Here's my pick for this week:

Mr. Nobody; Catherine Steadman
Ballantine Books - 2020

"If the car crashed, at this speed the impact wouldn't be enough to kill us instantly.  Which you might think is a good thing.

But it's not.

The one thing worse than dying on impact is not quite dying on impact.  Trust me, I know, I'm a doctor. And now that I'm thinking about it--I'd be genuinely surprised if this rental car even had airbags."

I really loved this author's last book, Something in the Water, and I'm hoping this one is as good.  Based on the intro above, would you read more or pass?


  1. What catchy opening lines! Now I have to know more. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  2. I just picked up a copy of this book and hope to read it soonish. Enjoy!

  3. I'd keep reading, I want to know if they do crash, and the beginning sounds like it's coming from a twisted mind.

  4. I would keep reading to see what happens next.

  5. Sounds pretty interesting to me too, I'd keep reading!

  6. I would read on because I like the narrator's attitude.

  7. Definitely curious! I need to know what happened and why...

    Here's my Tuesday post! Happy Tuesday

  8. This looks good. I'll have to check into this author.

  9. It sounds like it might be a poignant read. See what we are featuring at Girl Who Reads

  10. I don't think I am in the frame of mind for this-:(
