    1. What a great idea! It's fun to flick through and really valuable if you're looking for some ideas. Also, it contains my favourite first line of all time: 'It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen'from George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. I still aspire to write a first line as good as that.


    2. If you are a book lover, like I am, you are bound to have some favorite first lines from your favorite books. What if you could find a book dedicated to capturing all those old familiar sayings in one book, would you be interested?Well then look no further, 1001 First Lines, was collected and edited by Scarlett Archer just for you book lovers who sometimes will quote your lines but forget where they came from. These are all archived in a wonderful book categorized by genre type. You will find su [...]


    3. 1001 FIRST LINES is definitely not your typical book; fiction or non-fiction. It could be used a great book to find the next great novel based on the first line on the first page, it could be used like a book of quotes, and of course it could be used to just guess what would happen next or cringe from a bad line like a bad pickup line in a bar. If you enjoy looking for a interesting line first or not, you just might enjoy flipping through this book. Thankfully Archer breaks the book up into “c [...]


    4. I was honestly expecting most of the first lines to be from classic literature which would be interesting to readers and helpful to writers. Instead Ms. Archer nabbed first lines from adult and young adult, from paranormal to biographies, fiction and nonfiction. There were several classic novels like "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "Grapes of Wrath" in there right alongside the first line from "Twilight" and Phillip K. Dick novels. Science fiction, paranormal, romance, fantasy, classics, biographies [...]


    5. This book delivers exactly what the title promises and appeals to a very specific type of reader - a writer searching for inspiration, a trivia hound, or someone searching for a new read. The author did a good job of picking a diverse selection of books, and I liked the genre breakdown, but I thought small thematic introductions to the sections would've helped to transition the works into a cohesive whole.


    6. An excellent book for trivia, and to remind you of some very cool books.This book made me go back and re-read some classics I have, and made me hunt down a few more. Also, as a WRITER it made me look at my first line and hope to grab people with it.If I am lucky, Scarlett just might put my first line into the next edition
