Trivia: Can You Name the Classic from Its Opening Line?

Besides judging a book by its cover, we often look at the opening line to judge whether the story is worth continuing or not. Some authors begin with setting the scene and inviting readers into a vivid scenery, some establish a powerful narrative voice and engage with readers from the very sentence.


Whatever they do, first-liners are important, and when done well, memorable. Test your memory with this challenging quiz full of opening-liners from classic books.
