Book Beginning: In the Woods by Tana French



What I warn you to remember is that I am a detective. Our relationship with truth is fundamental but cracked, refracting confusingly like fractured glass.

-- In the Woods by Tana French. What a great beginning! Nothing like the unreliable narrator telling you he is unreliable from the get go.

I took the picture earlier this week, when we had snow here in Portland.

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.

SOCIAL MEDIA: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, 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.YOUR BOOK BEGINNING

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.


Hunt gave me a wounded look. "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence," he told me reproachfully.
I want to remember that line for my upcoming trial!

I have had In the Woods on my Kindle for a few years. I really want to read it soon. Its lengthiness is holding me back.
