Friday Firsts: Wolf Hall

The first line can make or break a reader's interest.
How well did the author pull you into the story
with their first sentence?

A Novel, Wolf Hall (Hardcover) by H. Mantel (Wolf Hall: A Novel (Hardcover))
"So now get up."
Felled, dazed, silent, he has fallen; knocked full length on the cobbles of the yard. His head turns sideways; his eyes are turned toward the gate, as if someone might arrive to help him out. One blow, properly placed, could kill him now.

I'd say that's a very effective opening. I'm in!
