Here is a first sentence that didn't grab me. It is from Alex Kava's ONE FALSE MOVE:
Max Kramer wore his lucky red tie with his blue power suit.
Now, just because that first sentence does nothing for me, it does not mean I won't read the book, because I enjoy Alex Kava's books immensely and recommend them to my patrons often.
I like first sentences. Some people might like bad first sentences. If you do, check out the Bulwer-Lytton website.
You won't regret it.
It is the shrine to bad first sentences.
