Book Beginning: The Alehouse at the End of the World by Stevan Allred

BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS
THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!

MY BOOK BEGINNING



The fisherman lived alone at the edge of the sea, in a shack beneath the shade of the tallest shore pine for leagues, on a bluff above a shallow cove.

-- The Alehouse at the End of the World by Stevan Allred, the latest release from Forest Avenue Press.

Allred's new novel is a feast for the imagination, following the hero on a 16th Century quest to find his beloved on the Isle of the Dead.

UPDATE: Oops! I forgot to include the opening sentence in my original post. It's there now.



Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

FACEBOOK: Rose City Reader has a Facebook page where I post about new and favorite books, book events, and other bookish tidbits, as well as link to blog posts. I'd love a "Like" on the page! You can go to the page here to Like it. I am happy to Like you back if you have a blog or professional Facebook page, so please leave a comment with a link and I will find you.

TWITTER, ETC: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, Google+, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book  Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.

TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.

A trip to the Isle of the Dead doesn't sound like the stuff of comedies. I know you like humorous books, so I hope you enjoy it.

I love the title, and the cover is so visually striking! I'd probably pick this one up for myself.

Not really a time period I read, but I hope you enjoy it.

Sassy Brit said...

This is like the film the pub at the end of the world... or something like that. I wonder if it's where they got the idea from? Will look it up! Happy Friday!

I'm intrigued! This doesn't sound like something I'd normally be drawn to but it sounds like it could be amazing.

Anne Bennett said...

Hmm..what a title. By the first line do I detect nonfiction? My Friday Quotes and review
