Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you’re reading. If you like, share with everyone why you do, or do not, like the sentence.
This week’s beginning is from Peter Carey’s True History of the Kelly Gang (won on Becky’s blog — thanks again!):
By dawn at least half the members of the Kelly gang were badly wounded and it was then the creature appeared from behind police lines.
It seems like this is the end rather than the beginning of the story, but there is an element of suspense (what is the creature?). I know very little about Ned Kelly, other than he was an infamous Australian outlaw, so I’m looking forward to reading further.
