This week’s competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from an action-adventure novel set in the heathery hills of Scotland:
“I will begin the story of my adventures with a certain morning early in the month of June, the year of grace 1751, when I took the key for the last time out of the door of my father's house.”
Entries, including postal address, should be sent to First Impressions, The Times Higher Education, 26 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4HQ, faxed to 020 3194 3300 or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The winner receives a £25 book voucher. The closing date is 25 June.
The winner of the last competition, who identified "The Mystery of Edwin Drood” by Charles Dickens, is Sharisse de Silva of Bilton, West Midlands.
