Hooked or Not?

My two cents:
After years of going against the literary world in an attempt to be unique, I'm reading my first Harry Potter novel. I have to say, after one sentence, I was hooked. I'm not sure if I'll make it to the next one but so far, I love the narrator's voice. The opening line got me.
