As readers, what would your opinion be on each of the following openings for a book? Which one provides more of a 'hook?' 1) A war council held after the loss of five guerrillas in a botched assassination; talk of hunting down a ship. A single line about how one of the characters cannot know who is father was because it will endanger all of them. 2) The assassination in progress: several guerrillas surrounding a house, and setting fire to it. 3) The guerrillas finding a setting fire to a ship: again, a single line about how it will endanger all of them if one character found out the identity of his father.
