The opening sentence from the 1830 Victorian novel by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, “Paul Clifford”. It really doesn’t get any better than this:
"It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents — except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness.”
Gawd, I have to get this book.
