If we do this for example
FactBook factBook; factBook = new FactBook();
does the initialization happen on the first or on the second line? I would guess on the second, but if so what practically happens at declaration? Nothing?

At declaration the space in memory for the object is being allocated and predefined as specifically for an object, you could have thousands of lines of code, and trying to take more space later on is slow and clunky, reserving it all at the start means the computer knows what it is giving to your code to run, and the code has its space defined.
