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

"Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea."
--Master Douglas Adams
"The Hitch-hiker's Guide To The Galaxy"

Second favorite:

"It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen."
--George Orwell
"1984"
