First Lines Friday...

 

I could have taken the 7:50, or even the 8:53. It’s Monday. Mondays are dead quiet at work. It’s just that I couldn’t take it anymore. What was I thinking, staying Sunday night. I don’t know what came over me. Two days are more than enough.
                   … The 6:41 to Paris by Jean-Philippe Blondel



I've been toying with buying this book. It's gotten some great press. But do these first lines make you want to read more?!

Yes! I like the uncertainty in the voice, seems realistic and believable to me!

Hi Jillian!
Yes, I thought the sentiments had a certain truth to them. I just picked this up and can't wait to dive in.

Thanks for stopping by!
