Welcome to First Chapter/Intros, hosted by Yvonne @ Socrates Book Reviews. Each week readers post the first paragraph (or 2) of a book we are reading or plan to read soon.
Hatchet Island; Paul Doiron
Macmillan Audio - 2022
Every night, no mater how many drinks he'd had or joints he'd smoked, he would awake to the screams of birds. For an instant, he would think he was back on the island. Then his hand would find the lamp beside the bed and the light would expose the messiness of his dorm room.
The odd thing was he'd never had trouble sleeping on Baker Island, where the chatter of gulls and keening of terns had lasted from dusk to dawn. The night terrors had only started afterward.--once he'd returned to the mainland. Now insomnia was short-circuiting his central nervous system.
What do you think, read more or pass? This book is #13 of the Mike Bowditch mystery series however, I have found that it isn't necessary to read them all in order to enjoy them.
