First Lines

“The buzz in the street was like the humming of flies.” –Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling)

I recently reread–no, I didn’t read it again, on my second time through I listened to J.K. Rowling’s crime mystery, The Cuckoo’s Calling, and this first line keeps echoing in my head. I’ve been thinking about first lines, and even writing them down. If you click on this link it will take you to 100 famous first lines, but I wonder what your favorites are?
