Friday 56: On Night's Shore



Rules:
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

This week's selection comes from On Night's Shore by Randall Silvis. It is a murder mystery told through the eyes of a 10 year old and in which Poe is one of the central characters. I'm enjoying it so far. Of course, it might just be the time away from Rand and his friends that I'm enjoying most!

"What's the line from Macbeth?" Virginia asked. " 'The raven himself is hoarse that croaks the fatal entrance.'"

Ironically I just finished a short story in Ray Bradbury's Martian Chronicles that deals with a number of Poe's stories. I'm having a very Poe day.

Poe is kind of "dark" for me but it is probably a good break from the adventures of Rand Al Thor and the rest of the gang to read something so different.

Here is mine today: http://jacaburintexas.blogspot.com/2010/05/friday-56-may-21st.html
