Book Beginnings on Friday: The Emperor of All Maladies


Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee

"On the morning of May 19, 2004, Carla Reed, a thirty-year-old kindergarten teacher from Ipswich, Massachusetts, a mother of three young children, woke up in bed with a headache."

As you can imagine from the book's subtitle, this headache does not bode well for Ms. Reed.

:( Is this a sad read, or will it end up being inspirational?
