Great opening lines

Some books distinguish themselves by having exceptionally good opening lines. Here are some of my favorites:

  • The Gunslinger by Stephen King
    The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.
  • Neuromancer by William Gibson
    The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.
  • Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
    It was a pleasure to burn.

More to come.
