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?
I have just returned from a visit to my landlord – the solitary neighbour that I shall be troubled with. This is certainly a beautiful country! In all England, I do not believe that I could have fixed on a situation so completely removed from the stir of society.
Scroll down to reveal the book!
A shorter quote today but the next section mentioned Heathcliff by name and that’s just too easy! This was gifted to me by the wonderful Caitlyn from Mad Cheshire Rabbit as it’s one of her favourite classics, so I’ll have to get around to it sometime soon! She also gifted me Frankenstein which I’ve read already and really enjoyed, so I’m hopeful for this. But I’ve heard people say you either like Wuthering Heights or Jane Eyre and I adored Jane Eyre… buuuuuttt I’m hoping I buck the trend. Have you read this English classic?
