Name that book.

Just for fun, can you name a book, based on the first sentence of the book. You can use ebooks, Audio books, or good old fasioned print books as your source.

No prizes as I'm broke.

I will go first, name this book

"I've watched through his eyes, I've listened through his ears and I tell you, he's the one"

Answer one and leave your own first sentence.

Border Crossing by Pat Barker.

This next pair of lines is a stumper, since Google has not indexed the book:

There was only one village on the whole asteroid, and it had no name. To the people living there, it was just The Village- a rough-and-ready collection of huts and houses half-sunken into the marshy ground.
