Third Sentence Thursday–The Heart is a Lonely Hunter


hosted by: Proud Book Nerd

Third Sentence Thursday is a weekly meme that Proud Book Nerd hosts.

How to play along...

Take the book you are currently reading and open it to a random page. Share the third full sentence on that page. (If there isn’t a third one – like at the end of a chapter or a blank page – you can share the third sentence of the book or just choose another random page.) Feel free to share more than one sentence, if you feel the need to do so.

  1. Share your thoughts, if any, on the sentence.

  2. Post a link to your blog post in the link list below. Don’t forget to link at Proud Book Nerd's blog, too! (There is a button in the sidebar to the right.) If you don’t have a blog, just leave it in the comments there.

  3. Visit one or two of the other blogs to check out their third sentence(s).

“He brought out a card and Jake took it questioningly. The man’s name—John Singer—was engraved in the center and beneath this, written in ink with the same elaborate precision as the engraving, there was a brief message. I am a deaf-mute, but I read the lips and understand what is said to me. Please do not shout.”pg 47

The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

by Carson McCullers

I like this quote. In the time period the book is set in, people call deaf people dumb, when that’s not the case at all. Before this, the man, Jake, had no idea John Singer was deaf. He only assumed Singer was quiet.
