“Coré knew that what he was doing was wrong, ill advised at least, but he felt they had left him no choice, passing him over like that, casting him aside in favour of his younger cousin.”

“As he was standing by the edge of the sinkhole he could not resist its pull – no longer was he in Guatemala city, may 29, 2010, no, he went down, down, down the mammoth hole, through the earth, through the ages – and while he fell all he could think was 'The sons of Coré didn't die'.”

“'Criminals will not be asked about their sins, but I know what I am – the fruit of my knowledge, however limited it may be,' whispered Coré, to the ever advancing shadows.”

Three possible first lines for this novel.
Which one would you like to read?

Actually, nowadays we select, buy and read books first and foremost on the merits of designers, Photoshop pro's, handsome or interestingly looking models, nudity, catchy artwork, and what not.

The first-line-elimination method for choosing a book to read has been labelled adolescent, ignorant, disrespectful and plain wrong. But in fact it has that one quality which lifts it above all visual aids that have become so common in a world driven by how things look: it involves the authors' words in the selection process.
Even if it is only for a speck of dawn.
