Titles, Opening Lines, and Endings

Good article. My favorite books 📚 are the ones you read real slow and savor. Much like a well aged single malt scotch.

titles

There are a few books whose titles I consider to be brilliant (this might just be about personal preferences so…), such as:

  • The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter
  • Darkness at Noon
  • Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
  • Heart of Darkness
  • The Turn of the Screw
  • The History of Love

Now, it’s obvious that a title can pique a reader’s interest enough so they actually open the book and try to read it. A great cover, an intriguing blurb, and a title that says something. I like titles that say something, even though I often choose for my own stories and novels simple titles (which is contradictory.)

My opinion?
