Thanks to Katy at A Few More Pages for hosting this meme. To participate, share the first line or two of the book you are currently reading and, if you feel so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line. The book I chose to use this week is one I've been reading for awhile now. I would have finished it long ago, but it's a very long one. And with my reading schedule being a more interrupted lately it's taken longer than usual.
From Daughter of Dreams by Marshall Miller:
"Dr. Manning? Do you want to comment on that?"
The voice came from far away. It came from a world where it was important to give an opinion about a minor detail in the latest scientific theory. It had ceased to exist for him 30 seconds ago, when the tiny implant behind his ear had buzzed.
