THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!

Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name. Book Beginnings on Friday is every week by Rose City Reader.

27876766The Gentleman by Forrest Leo

My name is Lionel Savage, I am twenty-two years old, I am a poet, and I do not love my wife. I love her once, not without cause – but I do not anymore. She is a vapid, timid, querulous creature, and I find after six months of married life that my position has become quite intolerable and I am resolved upon killing myself.

My Thoughts:

This book is a very different kind of read. It is very quirky and I’m not sure what to make of it yet. I am very intrigued by it though.
