For fun I thought it would be great if we all shared what we’re reading right now with a sentence or two from the first page.
It took me a long time and most of the world to learn what I know about love and fate and the choices we make, but the heart of it came to me in an instant, while I was chained to a wall and being tortured. I realised, somehow, through the screaming in my mind, that even in that shackled, bloody helplessness, I was still free: free to hate the men who were torturing me, or to forgive them.
These are the first two sentences of Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts, a 933 page novel that mirrors his own life.
So what are you reading right now and can you share a sentence or two from the first page? Any time of book works for me :)
