I read this book 25 years ago and I’ll never forget it. Maybe it wasn’t the best book I’ve ever read but it was the most unforgettable. I Googled it last night. It’s said to have one of the best opening sentences in all novels. John Irving said he knew he’d never write a better one. This is the way to sell a book. Following is the sentence I memorized.
“I am doomed to remember a boy with a wrecked voice-not because of his voice, or because he was the smallest person I ever knew, or even because he was the instrument of my Mother’s death, but because he is the reason I believe in God.
I can’t add pictures. Phone too low on memory.
