Friday Reads

First Line Friday 56 – All Systems Red by Martha Wells

Well, this isn’t a current read anymore (I read it on March 2nd over the course of the single morning) but I loved it so much that I wanted to include it here.

“First Line Fridays” is hosted over at Hoarding Books and is all about the first line of current read. A good companion meme is the Friday 56, hosted by Freda’s Voice where you turn to page 56 in what you’re reading a find a sentence that jumps out at you.


First (two) line(s):

“I could have become a mass murderer after I hacked my governor module, but then I realized I could access the combined feed of entertainment channels carried on the company satellites. It had been well over 35,000 hours or so since then, with still not much murdering, but probably, I don’t know, a little under 35,000 hours of movies, serials, books, plays, and music consumed.”

Page 56:

“When the feed dropped it was like someone slapped the organic part of my brain.”

Happy reading!

  1. All Systems Red has been on my kindle for a while, but I hadn’t even glanced at the first sentence/s yet. Now I’m definitely intrigued 🙂
