Third Sentence Thursday

Third Sentence Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Sniffly Kitty's Mostly Books you cab find that here.

How to:
1) Take the book you are reading now and post the third sentence
2) Review this sentence anyway you want (funny and silly reviews encouraged)
3) Post a link to your sentence here (in the comments) or if you don't have a blog, just post it in the comments!

From Le Morte D'Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory (skipping all of the introductions)

"And so by means King Uther sent for his Duke, charging him to bring his wife with him, for she was called a fair lady, and a passing wise, and her name was called Igraine."

Well, this sentence gives you a good idea of the book, the language follows through the rest of the book like this. If I read this sentence before picking up the book or knowing what the story was about, I would probably neverwant to read it but I love the story of King Arthur so I'd probably even read it in French with a French English dictionary. Once you get into the book, the story sweeps you away and you forget about the language and sentence structure; I promise.
