Favorite First Lines
I love it when a book sucks you in with the first line. That happened when
I opened Quicksilver by Stephanie Spinner. Hermes, a lesser god from Greek
mythology and one of Zeus' sons, kicks off this rollicking story with this line,
"It's dark and gloomy, and it smells like dead sheep, but when Zeus says go to Hell, I go."
What's your favorite first line?
