First Paragraph: A Room With a View

This week I’m finishing up the great classic, A Room With a View by E.M. Forester. It’s such a beautifully written story. Here’s the first paragraph:

Room With A View“The Signora had no business to do it,” said Miss Bartlett, “no business at all. She promised us south rooms with a view close together, instead of which here are north rooms, looking into a courtyard, and a long way apart. Oh, Lucy!”

What do you think? Would you keep going?

Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea asks us to share the first paragraph of a book we are reading. As you can see it’s called First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intros. Visit Diane to read more First Paragraphs.
