March 18th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

It's Friday, and you know what that means.  It's Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week's book is Macdeath by Cindy Brown.




I've just started this book.  In fact, I haven't made it to page 56 yet.  However, the quotes I have are so great I couldn't resist.

Here's how the book starts:

Like every actor, I knew Macbeth was cursed, that death and destruction and all manner of bad things happen during the show.  You'd think I wouldn't remembered this the day of my audition.

When I was debating about using this book this week, I looked at page 56.  It's the beginning of a new chapter, and this is the first paragraph of that chapter.

After an hour at Uncle Bob's office, I was done.  Not as in "done with my work," or even "done with this job," but done as in "stick a fork in me, I'm done."  Cooked.  I was used to the heat (keeping your apartment at ninety degrees will do that for you), but boy oh boy.

I just started the book this afternoon, and so far I'm only 40 pages in, but I'm loving it!

Have a great weekend, all.

  5. Okay I'm seriously intrigued! I love the voice of the teasers and Macbeth is my favorite of the tragedies despite the curse! I'll have to find out more about this one!

    1. I'm not super familiar with Macbeth and I'm enjoying this one. I bet there are references I am missing, so you might like it more.

  6. Sounds like something I should be reading, too! Love that "stick a fork in me" bit. Also love "Macbeth" -- but I've been involved in two different productions of the play, and both were pretty disastrous, so I'm a believer in the curse! Thanks for sharing, and happy reading this week!

    1. Interesting. I figured the curse was just people being superstitious. Although a murder on opening night certainly sets this one up for being the cursed.
