The Friday 56, Codex 632

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it to Freda's Voice.

This week the book is Codex 632 by Jose Rodrigues Dos Santos. It is a novel about modern day historians trying to figure out who Christopher Columbus really was. It has a habit of going on and on until it becomes dull.

The sentence:

The man looked rather unusual: he was short and dark-haired, with black gloves on his hands and an enormous wicker basket balanced on his head.

I wonder what he found so unusual about being short. :)

I think the unusual part was balancing the basket on his head.

Thanks for participating!
