I love opening lines that hook you right in.2

You picked a book because it’s a favorite author, or it’s highly recommended by a friend who read it, or just because you fancied it.

And when you read the opening line, you’re gripped.

You can’t wait to read the rest of the story.

Only time will tell if the story lives up to the promise you felt in those first words.

Here are some great opening lines that will make you want to read the whole book.

1. My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout

text, font, product,

“There was a time, and it was many years ago now, when I had to stay in a hospital for almost nine weeks”.

Oooh, why was she in hospital?

Did someone hurt her?
