The Friday 56, Terminal Logic

Rules:
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.



This week my book is Terminal Logic by Jefferson Scott. It takes place in the far off future, in the year 2006 when computers take over the world. So, as you might have guessed it is not a new book. Not bad if you ignore the dates. I find the references to movies and TV shows interesting. Kind of old school and futuristic at the same time.

The sentence:

Little yellow blossoms shimmering along the hedgerow. The flag billowing gently atop its silver pole. Nothing out here gave the slightest hint that a fire-breathing dragon lived inside.

A little misleading, that sentence. This is not a medieval adventure. But that doesn't mean you won't run into a dragon or two.

hahaha! I'm guessing these are the kind of dragons that live next door and yell at little children for making too much noise?

Dragons in 2006? Sounds interesting!

Told you it was misleading. What you have to keep in mind here is that anything is possible in virtual reality.
