Book Beginnings: Big Brother

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.

Big Brother by Lionel Shriver

"I have to wonder whether any of the true highlights of my fortysome years have had to do with food."

She makes an interesting point that we spend a huge amount of our lives eating, planning to eat, cooking, shopping, and yet how many truly amazing meals do we remember?

Good point about the meals, I can perhaps remember a handful? Thanks for sharing this book, that's an interesting way to start off a novel ;) Happy reading!

Very engaging opening line. It immediately makes the reader contemplate.

Clever beginning! Seems like we always celebrate with food: birthday cakes, wedding cakes, Thanksgiving feasts. I'm sure this is a book I'd enjoy.
