How many of these famous first sentences can you identify?
If I asked what book the line "Call me Ishmael" came from, most people would be able to tell me that the answer is Moby Dick. The first line of that particular book is almost as famous as the book itself, and was recently voted #1 Best First Line of a Novel by editors of American Book Review.
The same holds true for many other books too. How many of the following first lines from popular books (novels) throughout history (some modern, some a little older) can you correctly identify?
