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

Imagi e Me G ne by Adam Haslett is a 2016 Little Brown and Company publication Once I have chosen a book that is pretty far outside of my normal reading range continuing on my uest to expand my reading habits a littleI had NO idea what to expect really but this novel is truly remarkable in its unflinching portrait of a family coping with mental illness When Margaret marries John she is fully aware of his bouts with depression these episodes he has but she is in love with him and marries him despite the adversity they will face in life From that point on the family they have together will often face insurmountable challenges hardships and incredible pain as they watch the ones they love suffer from a slippery malady that draws them further and further from the love and warmth they need but can t seem to digest as they continue to slide into a dark abyss First of all this story is not a sugar coated watered down for public consumption type of novel It is realistic and stark and because of the subject matter it is heavy with little or no respiteHowever the characters are rich well drawn and I did care very much what happened to this family I hoped with them suffered with them and cried with them and you will too Watching them work so hard to keep their heads above water but seeing them flail about drowning as the tide pulls them under is difficult to watch But would I do anything differently I don t know How far do you go for someone you love Where do you become resigned to their fate How do manage to let go For the first time I saw him now as a man not a member of a family A separate person who had been trying as hard as he could for most of his life simply to get by While very thought provoking raw and emotional this book is pretty sad and if you are not one who handles that kind of outcome this is not the book for you I admit this is certainly not the type of book I would want to read too often and I usually do steer away for anything that suggests a less than rosy outcome but I am glad to see someone write such an honest and bold depiction of mental illness one that will stick with you for a long time to come I came away with much insight about those who struggle with this disease and for the families and love ones who suffer through that journey along with them 35 rounded to 4
