It is late. Roomie is noisy. This calls for a meme!

1. Take five books off your bookshelf
2. Book #1 -- first sentence

5. Book #4 -- next to the last sentence on page one hundred fifty
6. Book #5 -- final sentence of the book

Book #1: The Odyssey by Homer: The Norton Critical Edition (translated and edited by Albert Cook)
Book #2: Dragonsinger by Anne McCaffrey
Book #3: Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
Book #4: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
Book #5: Homeless Bird by Gloria Whelan

Tell me, Muse, about the man of many turns, who many ways wandered when he had sacked Troy's holy citadel; he saw the cities of many men, and he knew their thought; on the ocean he suffered many pains within his heart, striving for his life and his companions' return. She was about to look when a hissing to her left attracted her. "For he is forced to make everybody like him." "Reliable historical sources tell us this much," he said. Immediately I knew it would be the homeless bird, flying at last to its home.

Ooo. I quite like how your turned out. Not only does it seem to make sense, but the first and last sentence parallel mood so very well.

Wow, that one kind of works, weirdly - I like the long opening sentence setting the scene for the rest.

Wow, for randomly strung together sentences, that actually forms something I'd take a second glance at!
