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.
