First Line Fridays, a weekly feature hosted by Wandering Words, on judging a book by its opening lines rather than its cover or author.
This week’s First Line Fridays comes from a novel published in 1903.
Buck did not read the newspapers, or he would have known that trouble was brewing, not alone for himself, but for every tidewater dog, strong of muscle and with warm, long hair, from Puget Sound to San Diego.
The line is from the beginning of Jack London’s The Call of the Wild, recently made into a motion picture with Harrison Ford. I’m intrigued as to what trouble is afoot for Buck. I’ll add the title to my to be read pile.
What books are you reading at the moment?
Thanks for stopping by,
Oh I loved that book- bought my copy from a second hand book shop in San Fransisco and have been daft enough to lend it to my son, never to be seen again. Very apt with the film.
