Reddit has a thread on favorite first lines of books. I don't post there, but I was interested so I will get us started -

"The war ended, and the young men came home, and tried indignantly to fit themselves into old clothes and old habits which proved, on examination, to be both a little threadbare, and on trial to be both cripplingly small for bodies and minds mysteriously grown in absence."

Fallen into the Pit by Ellis Peters.

Others?
