Great Opening Lines

One guy's list. Surprisingly, I've read all these novels except one.

I don't have the book handy but didn't Hammett's RED HARVEST have a great opening line. "I first heard Personville called Poisonville by a fellow (not sure if that's the right word) who called his shirt his shoirt."

So, Bill, which one of the list do you have to get to yet?

Anna Karenina, which is noir, right?
