Every Tuesday Vicki at I’d Rather Be At the Beach hosts First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros, where we share the first paragraph or two of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon.
Mine comes from Andorra Pett and the Oort Cloud Cafe by Richard Dee.
“Is that it?”
The entrance was in partial darkness, the alleyway behind me dimly lit with flickering tubes. My heels had clicked on the floor as I passed small piles of rubbish and stained brick-effect cladding. The heels didn’t really work here but I was out of my depth and struggling to catch up. Same as the clothes, my designer suit was a little out of place in this riot of grey. It was a splash of colour in a drab working world.
I would read a bit more just to see if it got more interesting.
I think it will. Hopefully.
Fascinating! Now I do want to keep reading. Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.
I do want to know why she’s someplace where she’s so out of place.
Interesting. I’d want to keep reading.
I like that her clothes are a pop of color in a gray world. It makes her stand out.
I think the first paragraph does a good job of setting the scene. I’d read more.
It does give you a good idea of the type of place it is. Dirty, grimy.
