In which Sam rants about the English language, raves about Hemingway (as usual) and rambles on absolutely forever.
For this week's TTT, we've been asked to share the best book beginnings & endings. I took this rather literally and sought out the words that most shook me up when I read them first (rather than "I'm so glad that X person got a dragon in the end" because, well, I am nearly always glad to rave about the presence/rant about the absence of dragons.)
Also, this TTT is super long. You've been warned.
And as always, credit to The Broke and the Bookish for this fabulous feature!
