First line: I would have lived in peace. But my enemies brought me war.
The cover told us nothing about the book as there was no copy, just quotes. The first 20 pages told us the characters lived in a dystopian society where people were grouped into clans labeled by Greek letters. The main character's a miner whose clan never exceeds its quota enough to win the prize of extra rations.
We skipped to the end and it's clear he's aiming to change the society in which he lives. Good for him.
