This week for my Friday meme combo I have chosen one of the Doctor Who books I bought on my holiday – Frontier Worlds by Peter Anghelides. We picked up quite a few Doctor Who books on our holiday, but I need to get started reading them soon! Goodreads has the following description:
What strange attraction lures people to the planet Drebnar? When the TARDIS is dragged there, the Doctor determines to find out why. He discovers that scientists from the Frontier Worlds Corporation have set up a base on the planet, and are trying to blur the distinction between people and plants.
Now for this week’s excerpts:
Book Beginnings is hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader, who invites anyone to join in, saying: ‘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. Leave a link to your post. If you don’t have a blog, but want to participate, please leave a comment with your Book Beginning.’
The beginning of Frontier Worlds:
‘I can remember my twenty-fourth birthday like it was yesterday,’ said Shar Mozarno. ‘But I can’t recall what I had for lunch today.’
I like this beginning. It sounds so much like me most days.
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grabs you.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
It’s that simple.
From page 56 of Frontier Worlds:
I nodded again, feeling a yawn start at the corners of my jaw, and suppressing it.
That sounds a lot like me as well! I think I’ll enjoy this one, especially as it is about the eighth doctor, who, of course, only starred in one TV movie. I have a few other books with him in them as well, so hopefully I’ll get round to reading them all eventually!
