Book Beginnings: The Eight

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 Eight by Katherine Neville

"A flock of nuns crossed the road, their crisp wimples fluttering about their heads like the wings of large sea birds."

This story has two narratives, and it opens with the story of the Eighteenth Century French nuns.

I love the way the nuns are described.

I enjoyed the description in the opening sentence - "crisp wimples fluttering...." Now I'm curious about this book!
Here's my Friday56/Book Beginnings post.

That's a pretty good beginning... thinking that looks like a thriller? Definetly an interesting opener with the "flock of nuns".

I got these out of order and read The Fire first. I think it would have been better to read them in the order intended.
