Book Beginnings: Unbroken

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme originally hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages but now hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader.

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.

 Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand

"All he could see, in every direction, was water."

Ms. Hillenbrand starts off terrific with a suspenseful, ominous beginning. In fact, I read the first paragraph out loud to my boyfriend, as I thought it was just great and sets up the story so well!

Very interesting beginning...I love to read books about WW2 and that period of time.

My husband is reading this now. He likes the story but is not so impressed by the writing. But, then, I don't know what he really means by that.

Thanks for including your post on Book Beginnings.
