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 Currer Bell.
There was no possibility of taking a walk that day.
A rather understated start to the wild, gothic novel we have all come to know, written by the famed Charlotte Brontë.
Have you read Jane Eyre? What did you think? Do you prefer any of the other novels by Charlotte or that of her younger sisters, Emily and Anne?
I personally prefer Charlotte’s novel Villette, full of dark foreboding and passionate love, with an ending that is left unfulfilled.
What books are you reading at the moment?
Thanks for stopping by and stay safe! Christine x
