Miss Snark's First Victim
Maybe hooked. I'd read a little further.
Partial hook -- this seems like one of those openings that's meant for shock value and won't necessarily live up to the promise.WV: podsize (as in toes)
I would keep reading, but I agree with anonymous. Needs revision so it isn't confusing.
I liked your beginning. The title? Hmmmm....maybe not so much.
I like it--it made me snicker!
Ha ha. I like it! (the title? maybe) :-)
Cute, if I liked the genre I'd definitely be hooked
It seems the sentences are out of order. What would happen if you put the second, then third, then first. Toes for sale on Ebay might be a quicker hook. Just a thought.
Sojourner, I agree. That would make this a lot more clever.
I also agree with Sojourner. I would read more.
Ha! I'd keep reading.
Whoah! Yeah, okay. I'm curious. And while everyone else has good comments, I actually like the title. (grin)
Not really hooked.
Hooked, simply because it's so strange. And I like the varying sentence lengths.
LOL. It's bizarre and a little confusing, but the randomness of toes almost makes me hooked.
I'll read on, as much because of the title as the opening. People can list anything on ebay, at least until it gets taken down.
I agree with soujourner.There's a bit of a Eww factor, but I'd keep reading a little longer
Hooked! I liked the mention of the gold mine in the first sentence. It sets up the story as something a bit adventurous. I also liked that the MC upped the stakes by mentioning Ebay, indicating they were serious about the toe thing and not just being dramatic.
