The Friday 56 -The God of Small Things

A weekly meme hosted by Storytime with Tonya and Friends

* 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 this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week, mine is taken from The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy:

'If a person couldn't even run a pickle factory profitably, how was that person going to run a whole country?'

Thanks for visiting everyone! I haven't read this book yet, but I am looking forward to seeing that sentence in context.
