First Line of the Book You're Reading

Recommended Posts

"The boy with fair hair lowered himself down the last few feet of rock and began to pick his way towards the lagoon." It is the fourth time that i am reading this book and the symbolism in William Golding's Lord of the Flies gets me every time. Sometimes i feel like business majors and politicians should be forcefully made to read this as it is a great study of human nature and especially the various shifts that go through in the boys group(s). If one were to pay close attention, the resonances are unmistakable with our times and even i would go as far to say our lives.

It was the moustache that reminded me I was no longer in England: a solid, grey millipede obscuring the man's upper lip; a village people moustache, a cowboy moustache, the miniature head of a broom that meant business. You just didn't get that kind of moustache at home. I couldn't tear my eyes from it. Still Me by JoJo Moyes
