Book Beginnings, February 14, 2013

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

My book beginning today is from The Stainless Steel Rat by Harry Harrison.  This was our Science Fiction Book Club selection this month.  Actually, it was the selection for last December but our meeting was canceled in December and January because of weather.  This is a book that was written in 1961 and it has held up really well.  We all agreed it was a fun read and a good pick.  Here is the beginning:

When the office door opened suddenly I knew the game was up."

I'd like to read a sci-fi book from 1961 just to see what the writer imagined at that time! Sounds like this is a good one.
Here's the link to my Friday post: STRONGER THAN THE REST.

I rarely read sci-fi, but I like the idea of vintage sci-fi. Was this a famous book? I'm curious about how your book club came to pick it.

Sorry I haven't been around much lately. I lost the last four weeks to a nasty bug and a broken laptop, but I finally feel better and have a new computer.

Thanks for posting on BBOF!
