From The First Patient

"...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...."

From The First Patient by Michael Palmer:

"The rotors of Marine One slowed, then stopped. Dust clouds billowed into the still air. Minutes later, a second, identical helicopter landed twenty yard away."

The adventure begins. The President is landing somewhere for a reason we are soon to discover as we delve into another of Michael Palmer's engaging stories of the medical world near the seat of power. Must get back to my book!


Rules:*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.

From The First Patient by Michael Palmer, page 56:

" 'Fine. The Lincoln Bedroom is right down the hall if you want to rest there,' Carol said."

Have a happy weekend of reading!

This does sound good. I haven't read anything by Michael Palmer but it looks like I should add him to my list. Happy reading!
