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 Oh William! by Elizabeth Strout. The excerpt shared is from a hardcover version borrowed from the library.


Oh William!

First Chapter:  I would like to say a few things about my first husband, William.

William has lately been through some very sad events--many of us have--but I would like to mention them, it feels almost a compulsion; he is seventy-one years old now.


What do you think?  Would you continue reading? 

I am very intrigued by the opening sentences, and get the feeling that there is quite a story to unfold.

  3. First Chapter is a captivating blog that leaves us eager for more. If you're a student embarking on your first chapter of business coursework, seeking expert business coursework help can provide the necessary guidance and support.

  4. I couldn't help but feel overwhelmed by the huge amount of information presented as I delved into the first chapter-first paragraph of my college assignment. The topic, which turned around the concept of college assignment writing services , caught my interest as I looked for a reliable resource to help me with my academic workload.

  5. Hello there! I couldn't help but chuckle when I read the first paragraph of the first chapter. The author's humorous talent is a game changer. The way they merge wit and narrative is nothing short of brilliant. It's like getting invited to a stand-up comedy event, but in book form!
    The punchline in the opening words had me beaming from ear to ear. At its Movie Scripts Writing.! I can already see that this voyage will be full of laughs and surprising turns.
