The hook. That’s what we all look for in a book right?
That mind gripping scene that captivates the imagination and refuses to let go until the end! we all know the feeling. We all ‘need’ that feeling. And if your like me and absolutely love to sit back and relax with a good book, the hook is the utmost importance to get the imagination flowing.
Recently I have started reading the sequel to Daphne Du Maurier’s Rebecca, Called Mrs de Winter written by the brilliant author Susan Hill and the first chapter of that book is a great example of hooks.
I have only read the first chapter so far but even as I write this I have the book neatly perched beside me ready to continue the adventure!
A good hook makes a good book!
