Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. 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. If you like, share with everyone why you do, or do not, like the sentence.
If this was the first Larsson book you had picked up, this opening sentence would not exactly get your heart racing.
However for those of us that have read the first two novels, this sentence immediately brings back the tension and suspense where it left off before.
I simply cannot imagine reading this third novel without having read the first two. Do you know of anyone that has?
Let’s now take a look at the opening sentences of the first novel, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,
‘It happened every year, was almost a ritual.’
and the second, The Girl Who Played With Fire,
I think the opening of the second novel is the most gripping.
