Book Beginnings on Friday: November 11, 2011

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.

Thanks to Becky at Page Turners for starting this meme and to Rose City Reader for inspiring it!

This week I've actually got a few different books in progress, but this one is for a TLC book tour at the end of the month. It's The Printmaker's Daughter by Katherine Govier. Here is the beginning:
"Hey, you! You with the big chin! Oei!"
He's calling me.
I don't answer him. Not yet.
I dip the tip of the brush in the ink bowl.
I like it so far. Right away, it made me wonder about the dynamics of the relationship between father and daughter. I'm about 50 pages in now, and it's been quite interesting and very readable so far.

What is the first line of your current read, and how did you like it? Please leave the link to your specific post, not just to the front page of your blog.
