Most people’s best and worst parts of their lives aren’t even in the same year, but mine came within five minutes of each other.

  1. Hooked, though it sounds suspiciously like backstory.

  3. Yep. I want more. I'm already trying to think what it would be. You hear a loved one is dead - then hear five minutes later it's not true? Hmmm...

  7. Hooked! The wording might be tripping me up a bit, but I can't put my finger on what's bugging me. And the premise is intriguing enough!

  9. Well, I liked it, but it's a little sloppy, I guess. Is there another way you could word it?
    Truth be told, I was hooked by your title - fantastic, I definitely would want to read more.

  10. I agree with Bethany Elizabeth. I'm really intrigued by the concept, but the wording seems awkward.

  12. Close. Not for me, I think, but I think it's hooky.

  13. I like it and would read on. I'm curious to find out what happens next.

  14. Mostly hooked. Hoping that what follows will start right in with those five minutes.

  15. I liked the hook, but thought the first part of the sentence could have been worded more strongly

  16. My first thought as I read the first part of the sentence was a sarcastic Oh really? Cuz i know plenty of folks who can claim best and worst in the same year.

    Not sure this is that strong of an opening even if rewritten tho--

  17. I thought the second part was stronger than the first. I've found important events tend to cluster, so the bit about most people not having their best and worst in a year didn't really ring true for me. But having both within five minutes... that hooked me and made me want to read on for at least a little bit.
