22. An Iconic Opening Line:
"Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" by JK Rowling

“Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” by JK Rowling

Ok, so it’s a really obvious choice, but it’s one of the two well-known opening lines which I can remember by heart (the other being the one from “Pride and Prejudice”!), and I prefer this one from “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” by JK Rowling! It’s a surprise because the series opens with a Muggle point of view and we are introduced to two characters who don’t play huge roles in the series but are still fairly important because of one decision they make: to take care of their nephew Harry Potter on the death of his parents. Maybe “take care of” is the wrong phrase to use, as they are very unpleasant to the boy, but they could have sent him to an orphanage instead!
