Friday Focus: The Friday 56 & Book Beginnings #64


It's Friday . . . time to share excerpts from a current or upcoming read 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 a book I got from the library yesterday, A Good Marriage by Stephen King.

A Good Marriage  
BeginningThe one thing nobody asked in casual conversation, Darcy thought in the days after she found what she found in the garage, was this: How's your marriage?  They asked how was your weekend and how was your trip to Florida and how's your health and how are the kids; they even asked how's life been treatin' you, hon?  But nobody asked how's your marriage?

Page 56:  "She wanted a glass of water, but she was afraid to get up and go into the bathroom.  She was afraid he would stop her, and what would come after that?  What then?"
My thoughts: It's been a long time since I read one of this author's books.  The title intrigued me, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Which book are you reading now or about to start?
