Imagine Me Gone free read × 106 Adam Haslett ß 6 review Dy Over the span of decades his younger siblings the savvy and responsible Celia and the ambitious and tightly controlled Alec struggle along with their mother to care for Michael's increasingly troubled and precarious existen. NO SPOILERSFull disclosure book abandoned at page 57 out of 357 pagesThis book starts with a contemplative tone but is uickly plagued by pages of dragging exposition Haslett structured his narrative from different viewpoints with each chapter narrated by a different character from a single family The focus in the early pages is mostly on the father John a reserved man who s struggled with mental illness but seems to be managing well at this point Characters are mildly interesting and Haslett gave them distinct voices He did include dialogue to break up the large blocks of exposition and add some verve to the story but it can be annoying to read as it s not set off from the paragraphs nor is it contained within uotation marks It s also on the sparse sideIn some ways the story in these first 57 pages is too ruminative the opening lacks punch to hook the reader and therefore reuires patience There s a strong melancholy feel to all of it a passivity that Haslett probably felt made sense given the premise but can be a real slog after a short whileFinal verdict A story about a man with depression that starts off depressingly Skip it NOTE I received this as an Advance Reader Copy from Goodreads in May 2016

Update 42016 I wrote this review yesterday I m still thinking about this family and the challenges they lived with After talking to a friend about a disturbing scene I have chosen to update this review to give a warning I don t want to give spoilers but I think its fair to say that this book might not be the best choice if you are living with a loved one who is very depressed or suffers with a mental illness That saidits an insightful book well written much compassionwith enjoyable bright textured characters I suggest reading several reviews This was an engrossing look at the power of mental illness a deeply personal story about what happens when that power overwhelms a family of five Adam Haslett wrote a courageous novel allowing us to see what it s like to live with a serious illness from different standpoints the family John Margaret Michael Celia and Alec What I found admirable throughout this story is blame was never a weapon howeverthrough the storytelling which feels so realistic it s clear how messy and complicated it is in trying to help a person with this illness Very well written the multiple perspectives opens our eyes to what an entire family struggles with as a unit This is a compelling story revealing the human impact for those who suffer directly and for those who love the sufferer It s not easy to make sense out of the chaos irrational rages fears anxiety medications what works what doesn t depression denial feeling helpless guilt shame isolation codependency feeling empty or manipulated but Adam Haslett wrote a compassionate storyeach of the characters warmheartedness and their rapport with each other cultivate an inspiring presence regardless to limits around bailing others out and or listening to periodic tirades For family members in distressthis novel is gut wrenchingyet there are many moments of Goosie Good Feelings tooThank You Little Brown and Company Netgalley and Adam Haslett
