Writer's Block: The start of something wonderful

What is your favorite opening line of a book, and why?


"It was the day my grandmother exploded."

Crow Road, Iain M Banks.

What's not to like about that? And they left it as the opening line of the opening monologue in the BBC adaption, which pleased me.

(FYI, Granny had died and was being cremated, and the hospital accidentally left in her pacemaker)
