First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #46


First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea. It's an opportunity to share the first paragraph(s) of a book I am currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.

Today I'm featuring the opening paragraph from The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg, which I borrowed from the library.

The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion     


June 28, 2010

A few years ago, if someone had told me that
I would be at this reunion today,
I wouldn't have believed them in
a million years. . . . And yet, here I am!
-Mrs. Earle Poole, Jr.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
Fannie Flagg is a fabulous storyteller.  Her genuine characters and humorous plots draw readers in immediately and make you feel like you're part of the family.  I'm three-quarters of the way through this novel and enjoying every minute of it.
