A great book starts with a sentence that immediately draws you into the story.
The sentence I thought up this morning was:
“So,” I wondered, “did I kill her or not?”
I immediately wanted to know who was the speaker? Who was the victim? Why did he think he might have killed her? Why didn’t he know if he killed her?
I don’t know about you but if I picked up a book that started with that sentence, I would immediately go on reading the rest of it. Probably not stopping until all my questions were answered.
