This House is Haunted - John Boyne

First sentence: I blame Charles Dickens for the death of my father.

 

Me: Ooooh, this is going to be good!

 

Next paragraph: launches into Victorian-esque version of "first person narrator describes self while looking in mirror" cliche.

 

Me: Oh lordy, please let this be good. :S
