There is a passage from this book that will haunt me for years to come. Certain books can do this for some reason, put an image in your mind that will affect you more than something you saw on TV. I remember these images sometimes, years later. Booze looses them from the depths of my psyche. They are snapshots from the noosphere, they let me tap into the mainline of the collective consciousness. Or something.

For me, in this book, it's when the drowned woman's body comes rolling up from the green water of the mountain lake. She has a green necklace around her neck and her face is reduced to goo from being underwater.
