Friday Memes--On Saturday

Book Beginnings on Friday is a bookish meme now sponsored by Rose City Reader (who originally inspired the meme). Here's what you do: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments section. Include the title and author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you are so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line and if you did or did not like that sentence. Link up each week at Gilion's place.

Here's the first few lines from Unhappy Hooligan by Stuart Palmer:
The mixed foursome in gala evening dress came to the party late, and found that there wasn't any party. No light showed over the transom, and nobody answered the bell. They hammered on the door and called "Mac?" several times and then got tired of it all and went away to have their nightcaps somewhere else. The silence surged softly back again.

The Friday 56 is a bookish meme sponsored by Freda's Voice. It is really easy to participate. Just grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56. Find a sentence that grabs you and post it.
Here's mine from Unhappy Hooligan by Stuart Palmer:
"It's hard for any man to live fifty-odd years without making a few enemies," he pronounced sagely.
