Third Sentence Thursday (#1)

Third Sentence Thursday

Grab the Code

I'm starting up a new meme (hopefully it will catch on and become a meme anyway heh). The title was inspire by a post on Scalzi's Whatever Blog in which someone claims the third sentence in The God Engines is the worst ever. I thought it would be amusing to review third sentences in general and maybe some other fun things with third sentences.

So, this is how it will work this week:

1) Take the book you are reading now and post the third sentence
2) Review this sentence anyway you want (funny and silly reviews encouraged)
3) Post a link to your review here or if you don't have a blog, just post it in the comments!
4) Prepare for next week

"The chill wind that followed him through chased down his neck as the last icy grasp of winter clawed at him." -Intrigues by Mercedes Lackey

Obviously, the wind is an omen of chilling things to come (I couldn't help myself) or perhaps it's more that the wind is flirting with our mysterious character ^.~ This is a classic dual purpose third sentence. It's a workhorse meant to carry the weight of the story. Readers will enjoy its vivid imagery.

Next week: Pick the funniest third sentence.
