''Whenever possible tell the whole story of the novel in the first sentence.''

That's John Irving's writing advice.

In that light, and speaking of Richard Nixon, I've always remembered the first line of his memoir: "I was born in the house my father built."

be amazed at all the animals that Diablo 3 Gold would fall out: badgers, wolves, boa constrictors, Komodo dragons, crocodiles, ostriches, baboons, capybaras, runescape goldwild boars, leopards, manatees, ruminants in untold numbers. There is no doubt in my mind that feral giraffes and feral wow gold hippos have been living in Tokyo for rs gold generations without being seen by a soul.
