Welcome to First Chapter/Intros, now hosted by Yvonne @ Socrates Book Reviews. Each week readers post the first paragraph (or 2) of a book they are reading or that they plan to read soon.
Murder at the Vicarage; Agatha Christie
(#1 - Miss Marple - Harper 2011 edition)
"It is difficult to know quite where to begin this story, but I have fixed my choice on a certain Wednesday at luncheon at the Vicarage. The conversation, though in the main irrelevant to the matter in hand, yet contained one or two suggestive incidents which influenced later developments.
I had just finished carving some boiled beef (remarkably tough by the way) and on resuming my seat I remarked, in a spirit most unbecoming to my cloth, that anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe would be doing the world at large a service."
This year is going to be a year that I delve into A.C. I hope to at least read the first books of each of her series. What do you think of this intro? Have you read this one? Personally, I generally tend to love a first person POV.
