The Friday 56

The Friday 56 is a bookish meme hosted by Freda’s Voice.

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link up at Freda’s site

Today’s sentence comes from my current read, Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. Almost every line in this book is steeped in the atmosphere of the narrative. So melancholy, macabre at times and oh so quotable!

“Not like younger men being very incoherent, very passionate, swearing impossibilities. Not like him the first time, asking Rebecca…”

  1. I re-read Rebecca last year. What an amazing book. It won the Anthony Award for best Mystery book of the 20th Century. That’s quite an honor.

    My book is kind of the opposite. It hasn’t won any awards and won’t stand the test of time, but it is hilarious anyway.

    1. Hello! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

      Hmm…Rebecca won the award for best mystery book of the 20th century but in my opinion it is more of a suspense novel than a mystery. But that’s just me.
