Top 5 Opening Lines


“Mother died today. Or maybe yesterday; I can’t be sure.”


 “It was a pleasure to burn.”

S-5 cover

 “All this happened, more or less.”


 “In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.”


“History has failed us, but no matter.”
