Friday 56 (1) & Book Beginnings (1)

Hi, I am trying some new memes this week.
The first is Friday 56, sponsored by Freeda's Voice.

Here are the rules:

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post in Linky at Freeda's Voice .

It's that simple.

My book is Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberrry.

"I'm self-aware enough to know that I have a somewhat fractured personality."


 The next one is Book Beginnings sponsored by A Few More Pages.

How to participate: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments. Include the title and the author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you would like, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence. The link-up will be at A Few More Pages every Friday and will be open for the entire week.

I am going to use Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry again:

"When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week, then there's either something wrong with your skills or something wrong with your world.
And there is nothing wrong with my skills."

My impressions of these lines are that this is a tough, macho kind of book.  The book is marketed as a thriller and science based horror book, and I think these first lines set the tone really well.  They are quite intriguing, setting me up for an exciting book.
