What's your feelings on the hook? I've been looking at a list of over 600 top books http://www.alistofbooks.com/ browsing for something to read and noticed most of the opening sentences had been given. And not many of them are all that hook-y. They tend to be informative & crisp but rather plain. I've never been too keen on hooks ( sentences ) as I've seen a lot of great sentences that merged into rather ordinary scenes. In fact I would've preferred something with a lot less dazzle. I myself, even bungle some openings trying to maintain a 'hook.' I'm starting to rethink the idea that the 'hook' is more broad less immediate. Meaning you've got a few pages to set up your 'hook' rather than one sentence. What do you think?
