Book Beginnings: The Good House

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.

The Good House by Ann Leary

"I can walk through a house once and know more about its occupants than a psychiatrist could after a year of sessions."

This is probably true of any professional realtor. I know I feel my house is a reflection of me.

I love this beginning. I'd definitely read more to find out what a house reveals to the character and how that figures in the book's plot.
Here's the link to my Friday post: WHAT MATTERS MOST.

A bittersweet beginning for me. Bitter, because I cannot wait to be the owner of a place I can call my own. Sweet, because the author could not have worded any better. I too can walk into a home and discover many characteristics about its owner. Thanks for sharing!

That's a great snippet, definitely invites one to pick the book up.

An interesting beginning. I would LOVE to see what a realtor says about my crazy neat house. :)

Will probably tell me to "lighten up." :)

Thanks for sharing a great beginning that made me think. :)

Hmm. I bet a realtor can tell alot about the people that live within the house.

I am dying to read this one! I'm on the waiting list at the library but they have it in audio version so I'm tempted to just get that. It has such a great beginning!
