Veckans tematrio handlar om inledande meningar i en bok som fångar läsarens intresse omedelbart.
1. Stolthet och fördom av Jane Austen har en fantastisk inledning och jag misstänker att den kommer finnas med på många listor:
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
2. Från Charles Dickens A tale of two cities:
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.
3. Från Joan Didions Ett år av magiskt tänkande:
Life changes fast. Life changes in the instant. You sit down to dinner and life as you know it ends.
