Started off promising enough, but it lost me around page 125. I got upntob225 and just couldn't get myself to the finish line.

Michael was the most interesting character, the rest I found petty and boring. The writing itself is good, even though he gets flowery for what I think, is the sake of showing that he can write prose.

Not for me.

Adam Haslett has written the tragic story of a family with two of its five members dealing with mental illness. It is written from the perspective of the five family members over several decades. In his signature style, Haslett has captured the emotions and personalities of all five, giving us insight into the struggles of the mentally ill and the lasting effect on the family members, both genetically and psychologically.

Many families have members who are mentally ill. They are all too familiar with heartbreak and frustration. Treatments vary, and sometimes are unsuccessful. Medications are mentioned in this book that may be effective, but the right combination is too often elusive. It is so very wrong that there has been a stigma attached to people suffering from mental illness. I believe that we are becoming more enlightened as a society in recognizing that these people and families deserve our compassion and respect for their struggles.… (mais)

I was super excited to stumble upon this Dark Corners collection of short stories by various authors via my Amazon Prime library (Amazon Original Stories.) I like that the stories are available individually on both my Kindle and Audible account. The Remedy was just okay for me and it’s difficult for me to review. I liked it, but I don’t feel as though I fully understand what happened. A man pays an extreme amount of money for therapy. Maybe it was for therapy…he sees a doctor, but I don’t even know what happened during his sessions. He leaves feeling great and looks forward to his next appointment. At the end some really mind bending stuff happens. I guess, I was really just left wanting more of the story.… (mais)
