First Lines Fridays #5 10th July 2020

Friday, July 10, 2020


First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?  If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above, and follow the rules below:

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Hello!

Even though it's in the middle of quarantine, seems like the time flies so fast. Here we are again First Line Fridays. For this week, I decided to read a translation book for one of famous detective story. At first, I want to write today's FLF in Bahasa, but for the sake of consistency--which is more hilarious because I will cite the sentence in Bahasa, not English, I decided to write in English.

So, here is the first line for today's FLF.

Ada orang yang selalu bisa menikmati perjalanan menyeberangi Selat Kanal; mereka bisa duduk tenang di kursi geladak, dan begitu tiba, menunggu sampai kapal betul-betul sudah tertambat, baru mengumpulkan barang-barang bawaan tanpa terburu-buru, lalu naik ke darat.

Hmm. Such a long lines for today, I supposed. 


The Big Four by Agatha Christie

Blurb:

Poirot terkejut ketika seorang pria lusuh muncul di ambang pintu rumahnya. Sesaat pria lusuh itu hanya menatap Poirot, lalu terhuyung dan jatuh. Dalam keadaan setengah sadar, ia menggumamkan, “Mr. Hercule Poirot, 14 Farraway Street,” berulang kali.

Misteri semakin rumit ketika si tamu asing tak kunjung bicara banyak dan beberapa kali hanya menuliskan angka 4 di kertas. Poirot harus menggunakan sel-sel kelabunya untuk memecahkan persoalan ini, membahayakan nyawa demi mengungkap misteri di balik angka tersebut.

I read this book in order to complete all of Hercule Poirot's series. I know that this a long time journey. But, I am sure it will very exciting.

Sincerely,

Ra
