“Unemployed at last.”

“Harry Joy was to die three times, but it was his first death which was to have the greatest effect on him…”

Even though I love –

“The hideous low scarred yellow horny and barren headland lies curled like a scorpion in a blinding sea and sky.”

– it’s hardly taken off. Are there any other great opening lines that people know of?
