So, this week I started reading 'Nemesis' by Jo Nesbo. So far it's a great book! But, before I get carried away, here's the opening:
"I'm going to die. And it makes no sense. That wasn't the plan, not my plan, anyway."Wow! There's nothing like throwing the reader right into the thick of things! I love that whoever this person is had some kind of plan or mission, which has somehow taken a drastic turn and he/she now knows they're going to die. It seems that someone else might have planned to kill this narrator, and so I couldn't wait to find out why, how, and who they were. I also love the element of humour in it, that someone could plan to die!
I think this is a brilliant opening, and I can assure you that the rest of this chapter (which is only a page long) and the whole of the next are just as exciting!
I can't wait to finish this book and review it, so look out for the rest of my verdict!
