Book Beginnings on Friday: Doctor Zhivago

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.

Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak, translated by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky

"They walked and walked and sang 'Memory Eternal,' and whenever they stopped, the singing seemed to be carried on by their feet, the horses, the gusts of wind."

Hm, not a famous first line like you expect from Russian lit, but not bad. Makes me wonder where they are going.
