First Lines Friday – August 10

This is a weekly meme hosted by Wandering Words, where you give the first few lines of a book to hook your readers before introducing the book.

Here are my first lines:

“In the corner of a first-class smoking carriage, Mr. Justice Wargrave, lately retired from the bench, puffed at a cigar and ran an interested eye through the political news in The Times. 

Do you recognize these first lines?

And the book is… And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie.

Goodreads synopsis:

First, there were ten—a curious assortment of strangers summoned as weekend guests to a private island off the coast of Devon. Their host, an eccentric millionaire unknown to all of them, is nowhere to be found. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal—and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. One by one they fall prey. Before the weekend is out, there will be none. And only the dead are above suspicion.

This is one of my favourite books of all time!

Have you read And Then There Were None? What did you think of it?

  1. Happy Friday!😎

    My first lines come from Carolina Mercy by Regina Rudd Merrick…..

    Lucy Dixon wanted it to be a bad dream, but it wasn’t. Auto pilot. It was the only way she was getting through this. Daddy was dead.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚💖
