Friday Focus: The Friday 56 & Book Beginnings #48

It's Friday . . . time to share excerpts from one of my current reads with:
  • Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, where bloggers share the first sentence or more of a current read, as well as initial thoughts about the sentence(s), impressions of the book, or anything else that the opening inspires.  
  • The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice, where you grab a book and turn to page 56 (or 56% of an ebook), find one or more interesting sentences (no spoilers), and post them.
Today I'm featuring:
Summer House with Swimming Pool

I am at the half-way mark of this book, and am thoroughly engaged in the story.  I'm turning pages because I know something momentous is about to happen, but at this point I don't know what.  Author Herman Koch has a fertile imagination, and like in his previous novel, The Dinner, he presents a compelling story with moral, ethical, and familial factors.  It's an engrossing read.

BeginningI am a doctor.  My office hours are from eight-thirty in the morning to one in the afternoon.  I take my time.  Twenty minutes for each patient.  Those twenty minutes are my unique selling point.
Page 56: "After five minutes with you I felt like I'd known you all my life.'"

Which book are you reading now or about to start?
