Sublime Lines From Awesome Books
So, Joe Hill, at his blog — http://joehillfiction.com/2012/08/good-lines/ — did a thing where he asked people to identify some of their favorite and most impactful sentences from books they’ve read, and I thought that was pretty rad. (Also rad, which is when Mister Joe said: “For me to really enjoy a book, I need to hear some music in the writer’s sentences. I know it shouldn’t matter. Story is more important than style… yet if I don’t like an author’s voice, if they don’t grab me with the sound and rhythms of their sentences, I can’t fall under the spell of the narrative.” Uh, hell yeah.)
I’m posing the same question to you.
Because I wanna know your answers.
So. Pick a sentence you love from a book — something you read years ago, something you read just the other day, whatever — and post it below in the comments.
I’ll pick a random commenter by the end of the day to get a free e-copy of BAIT DOG.
Dig it? Dug it? Do it.
