"There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it."

I think this fabulous opening line from The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by
C.S. Lewis speaks for itself.

Beware, Donna, you've opened the floodgates--you may be getting a quote a
day from me!

Here's my quote.

...and so there ain't nothing more to write about, and I am rotten glad of it, because if I'd a knowed what a trouble it was to make a book I wouldn't a tackled it and I ain't agoing to no more. But I reckon I got to light out for the Territory ahead of the reast, because Aunt Sally she's going to adopt me and sivilize me and I can't stand it. I been there before. - Mark Twain The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

My quote: "When the doorbell rings at three in the morning, it's never good news." -- Anthony Horowitz, Stormbreaker.

A terrific opening line.
