What are your favourite first sentences from books? Is there a book that you liked specially because of its first sentence? Or a book, perhaps that you didn’t like but still remember simply because of the first line?
I think most reader are familiar with the first line "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." To be honest, I can't remember any first lines of books that stayed with me. Title catch me more than first lines. I just finished a book with the title Don't Make Me Choose Between Me and My Shoes by Dixie Cash. Tell me that's not a catchy title?
