Great First Lines
This is another thing from that list of blogposts that wasn’t totally stupid. “Make a list of great first lines from books,” it said. So, here is a list of five first lines that I really like, in no special order: All children, except one, grow up. — Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie It is given […]
