Book Beginnings: Armada

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.

Armada by Ernest Cline

"I was staring out the classroom window and daydreaming of adventure when I spotted the flying saucer."

How on earth could you not keep reading after that first line? It's got to be one of the greatest first lines I've ever read. And no, he's not seeing things. It really is a flying saucer.

What a great opening! Although I don't often read sci-fi, I'd keep going to find out if the saucer was real, if it was an experiment by the U.S. military, or if aliens were visiting earth. Hope you enjoy the story.
My Friday post features Taming Jenna.

Ok, that's definitely a spoiler which grabs your attention right away! I mean, we all daydream every once in a while but I've never seen a flying saucer while doing so! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great week!
