Book Beginnings on Friday: Age of Innocence

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 Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton

"On a January evening of the early seventies, Christine Nilsson was singing in 'Faust' at the Academy of Music in New York.'"

This is a good intro to the book as it's about high society in New York, and the opera plays a big role.

Innocence looks like a good read - thanks for sharing this! Here is mine, from the book, Pink Noise: A Posthuman Tale by Leonid Korogodski. This is a very compelling story, which has superb actions scenes:

"The girl was in a coma so severe that it prevented digital upload of her mind. This rescue mission called not for a doctor but an artist. Nathi was one, the best master of brain debugging in his order."

I've never read Edith Wharton, but this intrigues me.

Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings! :)
