Book Game - And Then The Murders Began.....
#1
The opening line of a book is extremely important, as it has to be intriguing and powerful enough to capture the reader's imagination. Then, the second line has to intensify the intrigue. Coming up with these lines can be pretty difficult, yet one writer came up with a second line that would almost always heighten the intrigue to its peak, and the Internet is going crazy.

"And then the murders began" - that's the clever line Marc Laidlaw came up with. Add it to almost any opening line and you've got yourself a hell of an intriguing book opening. Now people are tweeting famous first lines of books followed by Marc's second line, with the hashtag #LaidlawsRule . The results are absolutely hilarious! See the posts below, and feel free to add your own intriguing openings to the list.

'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

They were raised on small, poor ranches in opposite corners of the state, Jack Twist in Lightning Flat up on the Montana border, Ennis Del Mar from around Sage, near the Utah line, both high school dropout country boys with no prospects, brought up to hard work and privation,both rough-mannered, rough-spoken, inured to the stoic life. And then the murders began.... (Brokeback Mountain)
