7th Son - Nothing to See Here

I think the best opening line I've ever seen (well, heard) (well, ok, it's two sentences, so I'm not sure if it qualifies as an opening line or not, but...) in any work of fiction is:

"The president of the United States is dead. He was murdered in the morning sunlight by a four year old boy."

Awesome opening lines, neh? Even better when you hear them. If that makes you go, "huh, intriguing...", or, "wait! what? ur, huh?! 4 year old?!", then you should listen to 7th Son: 7thSonTrilogy.com

It's a trilogy (currently on the way to the end of book 2) of novels by author J. C. Hutchins podcast as a free audio book. I've been enjoying it for some time now.

(I posted something analogous to this as a comment on one of brianrubin's posts, but I thought it was worthy of a post of its own. :)

I'm a bad person. I read the president is dead and my first gut reaction was to be excited. I am now going straight to hell.

Perhaps I should ... ur ... put quotation marks around it or something. I'm not sure how to make it clear at a glance that it's fiction. :)

Given how irregularly I post, that's saying something. :)
