Just like the opening scene of a movie, the first line of a book is the author’s chance to capture the attention of his reader. While some authors make it exciting, others keep their openings simple, without much fan fare. Scribendi has put together a cool infographic with opening lines from 34 of the best known books in recent history. From the witty Hitchhiker’s Guide to Galaxy to the romantic Pride and Prejudice, fantasy world of The Hobbit or the business side of the Great Gatsby, this infographic covers a wide range of writing genres and popular books. Play a line guessing game with your friends to simply jog your memory or make a list of books you would want to read in the future, this infographic is just too good.
