About This Tool

The opening lines of novels have become the key factors that determine whether the reader should read the books. If you buy a book because of a good title or a famous author, you may also give up reading because of its terrible first lines. If we regard a novel as an opera, the first lines of the novel are the light before the beginning of the opera, allowing all audiences to concentrate.

It is not easy to write good opening lines, which often makes the writer feel embarrassed and frustrated. Looking back on literary history, there are many famous novels with excellent opening lines, which attract readers to continue reading. The random tool collected 111 novels with the catchiest first lines, such as A Tale of Two Cities, Anna Karenina, etc.
