Include the title and the author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you would like, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence.

The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep and Never Had To by DC Pierson
Prologue
All the newspapers and TV pundits are calling this fall's freshman college class the 'Symnitol Generation,' but if the activity up and down my dorm hallway is any indication, this fall's freshman college class is the 'Stand Around Each Other's Laptops and Play The First Thirty Seconds Of Every Song On the Hard Drive Generation.'

I'm only a few chapters into the book but if this prologue is a peek into the future for what is in store for me in the rest of the book, I am looking forward to it.  I find this opening line quite funny.
