  3. Like it. I'd immediately think poaching. Not sure if thats the direction you want readers to go.

  4. Hmm. I'll disagree with everyone else. I don't like books that begin with questions.

  5. I'm with brimfire on the not liking questions as openers, but I'd definitely read the next few paragraphs to see what's up.

    Intriguing.

  6. I'd have to read more of this just to see what's up. From the quirkiness of the opening lines, I'm almost prepared to read about ostriches hunting. ;-)

  7. Well, it's interesting and I'm curious enough to want to read more, but my first instinct was to want to change it to what do guns and ostriches have in common.

  9. I’d definitely read more. We’ve already gotten a sense of mystery and humor, as well as time. I’m intrigued and want to know the answer to that riddle.

    I agree with brimfire. I don't like questions as first lines. And who's asking it, anyway?

    I am hooked, though. Anything with ostriches in a first line has got to be interesting. :)
