First Chapter ~ First Paragraph

 It's Tuesday . . . time for . . . 

. . . First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros . . . now hosted by Yvonne at Socrates' Book Reviews, where bloggers share excerpts from a book they have read, are currently reading, or are planning to read.

Today I'm featuring an upcoming read, Anxious People by Fredrik Backman.  The excerpt shared is from a copy I purchased.

Beginning:  1
A bank robbery.  A hostage drama.  A stairwell full of police officers on their way to storm an apartment.  It was easy to get to this point, much easier than you might think. All it took was one single really bad idea.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
The short sentence structure and information shared is an immediate hook.  Of additional interest is the author, who has become a favorite of mine for his story and character development.
