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.

  6. I looked at the first paragraph of my school assignment and it was nice to see that it was very well done and neatly and beautifully done. That work was done with great design. If it comes to design, there are many designers such as logo designer services. Nice to see the first paragraph of the work everyone wants children to work in the same way with beauty and cleanli so that the work is as good as possible
