First Lines Friday! #30

It’s time for another First Lines Friday! Hosted by Wandering Words!!

What if, instead of judging a book by its cover or its author, we judged the book by its opening lines?

Here is how it works:

– Pick a book and open to the first page.

– Copy the first few lines without revealing which book it is.

– Reveal the book!

So… do these first lines entice you?

Mr Utterson the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance, that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scant and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary, and yet somehow lovable.

Scroll down to reveal the book!

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (Wordsworth Classics) eBook : Stevenson, Robert  Louis: Amazon.co.uk: Kindle Store
Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by R.L. Stevenson

Another classic that’s been on my tbr shelves since around 2016. I’m hoping to finally pick this one up in October! I feel like that’s an appropriately spooky month to read this in 👻 I’ll also hopefully be reading the other stories in this wee collection as they’re only short. Have you read this before? Did you like it? Let me know!!
