THE KEEPER by Sarah Langan (Harper Torch, c2006, ISBN 0-060-87290-8)was the first book in a long time that I was unable to finish and not because it was a bad book; it just got a little too weird for me personally.
The book, set in Bedford, ME, is about a woman named Susan Marley who is basically the town outcast. When she dies, she comes back to wreak havoc on the townspeople who disparaged her through their waking dreams and it rains, all the time.
The first sentence:
They knew Susan Marley.
I got as far as page 183 and then skimmed to the end. This book really wasn't my cuppa but that's just me...
