I was very much looking forward to read this book, which offered an interesting concept. Assembling the opening lines of several masterpieces with a comment provided by " experts" and elaborating on the idea that starting is always a challenge, but a rewarding one.

Turns out, most of the comments were of the obscure or snobbish type. A lot of intellectual, Italian, blah blah blah. The purpose of most interventions seemed to prove how clever each author was, rather than conveing ideas which could be of interest for the reader. Also, some of the books chosen were themselves convoluted, elitist works in the same category of the comment.

Honestly, who reads Manganelli? An exercise in style, but engaging reading? Anyway, a couple of interventions were of interest and I particularly enjoyed the first about "Jacopo Ortis". Finally, strangely enough, even if the red line through the book was the importance of the beginning, most "experts" delivered rather morbids paragraphs about deat.

Bizarre book, nice cover graphic but mostly a huge disappointment.
