Book Beginnings: Cloud Atlas

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme 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.

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

"Beyond the Indian hamlet, upon a forlorn strand, I happened on a trail of recent footprints."

Ooh, that's an intriguing start! Whose footprints? And where do they go?

You're right - that is an intriguing start. I like the poetic feel to the sentences too.
My Book Beginning is from PERIGEE MOON.

That first section can be a hard one to get past, but there are six different story styles contained with this book, so keep with it! I loved it in the end.
