First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intros #5


Diane over at Bibliophile by the Sea hosts this meme.

Today I’m featuring a review book that I am currently reading. My review will be posted on Feb. 26th, so I hope you will come back and check out what my final thoughts were.

The Man From 2063

The flame stood out like a beacon of light in a sea of darkness. It was probably the most famous flame in the world, for it honored the grave of President John F. Kennedy.

It was November 22, 2063, exactly one hundred years to the day since President Kennedy had been assassinated in Dallas, Texas. The grave of JFK was mobbed with tourists on that bright, sunny fall day, all eager to see the martyred president’s final resting place. One tourist had a small radio playing softly in the background. Suddenly, a news broadcast came on.

Another historical fiction for me this week – I must be on a historical fiction kick! Either way, I am obsessed with all things Kennedy. So when I was pitched this book I immediately jumped on the opportunity. Going into it I had a feeling that it would be like Stephen King’s recent 11/22/63 – which I actually DNF’d. However, so far this book has been a much better fit for me. I’m about 100 pages into it and thoroughly enjoying it. Besides, with an intro like that, doesn’t it make you want to find out what happens on that news broadcast?
