What is your favorite opening line from a novel?


My favorite is, "The man in black fled across the desert, and the Gunslinger followed." From "The Gunslinger" by Stephen King.

    I've seen this movie but never read the book. I have seen other quotes from it lately so was thinking I might check it out.
