Booking Through Thursday: Beginnings

Here’s another idea about memorable first lines from books.

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?


Unfortunately, I do not remember ANY first lines.  I am pretty good at recalling a few good phrases.  For example, in the book I just finished, I loved the line: "Ignore is not the same as ignorance."  Since I cannot recall a first line, there is not a book I did not like whose first line I remember.  This question is making me feel bad about my memory.
