The Beginning and The End Series: Strangers on a Train Patricia Highsmith

I'm a voracious reader and one of things that I try to do is to read at least one book every week whether it's a new story or something that I've already read before.

I like reading either the first few lines of the book or even the last few lines. It helps me figure out if the book would be interesting enough.

In this series, I'll be bringing to you some of the books that I've enjoyed reading.

Hopefully, these would help some of you discover the reading bug. Whether you use an ereader or still prefer the print version, it doesn't matter.

Let's make a difference and start a Reading Revolution.

I've learned a lot from reading and I'd like to share this passion to everyone.

Please beware about possible spoilers if you read The End part.


Book Title: Strangers on a Train
Author: Patricia Highsmith


The Beginning: The train tore along with an angry, irregular rhythm. It was having to stop at smaller and more frequent stations, where it would wait impatiently for a moment, then attack the prairie again But progress was imperceptible.


The End: It was inevitable and ordained, like the turning of the earth, and there was no sophistry by which he could free himself from it.

"Eh?" Gerard said.


Guy tried to speak, and said something entirely different from what he intended. "Take me."
