Slowly the family begins to learn what happened to Justin. A lesser novelist might have treated such charged material with prurient interest and ripped-from-the-headlines drama instead of as a tender Remember Me [Like This] (Radio Mix) - Metasonica - Remember Me (Like This) (CD) compelling portrait of recovery.
The only voice missing is that of Justin, whose perspective we only learn about through his interactions with his parents, his grandfather, and his brother; he is not given his own point of view, although all the characters orbit around him. This is a stroke of artistic genius, as well as a deep respect for these lovingly drawn characters. The book is alive with the fully imagined inner lives of each of its characters.

This is a quiet and compelling novel, reminiscent of those written by Kent Haurf. The novel is told in the alternating perspectives of four of the family members as they attempt to reconcile, reintegrate and heal from what must be the worst nightmare that any parent will suffer.
The family members have all been transformed by the kidnapping and wrestle with how to move forward once Justin has returned. The writing is remarkable and emotionally powerful.

Victims of childhood trauma often won't have the vocabularies to describe their emotions. This is neither clinically rendered nor a potboiler. Rather, as it says "There can be disturbances of every kind--eating disturbances, disturbances in his sexuality and attachments, disturbances in fear-based behavior.
Rather, as it says in the book description, this book begins where others tend to end. This deals with post-traumatic afflictions of family after one of the sons, Justin, who was kidnapped at age eleven, returns four years later. Roxanne Gay's novel of PTSD, An Untamed Stateconcerned the kidnapping, captivity and post-rescue of a young mother, and how it affected all the family members. That book started with the amplified action and graphic displays of trauma, and later moved into the more nuanced territory.
However, Johnston's book is consistently understated. There are no overt atrocities; if anything, Johnston curtailed the gruesome events, and delicately implied what we tacitly understand about the trauma, allowing the reader to interpret and move on from the headline-grabbing type of action and into the deeper recesses of the emotional wounds.
That is what this is about--how a family's life is permanently altered from the events, an upheaval that requires therapy and time. Johnston reveals the contrast of before and after--how their lives have been capsized in innumerable ways. And, especially, he depicts the isolation that each family member feels, and the way they walk on ice to give a wide berth to each others' fragility. But, we feel the tension of that ice about to crack.
Johnston's luminous use of extended metaphors, such as conveyed in Laura's volunteer work with ailing or impaired dolphins, invariably brings it home to the central premise. Johnston's prose is flawless, and every passage is organic and lucid.
He doesn't put too fine a point on things, allowing the reader to translate what is revealed to what is not. He tells you enough, but does not telegraph events.
There isn't one inauthentic moment in this novel. His descriptions of Corpus are so ripe that I felt that I was there, as I have been numerous times as a tourist. He brought the city into sharp relief--the Harbor Bridge, the brackish water, and the townspeople. And, he sets up a suspenseful plot line in the prologue, which keeps us on tenterhooks until the very end. I am astonished that this is his debut novel but he does have short story collections under his belt.
No wonder he is Harvard's creative writing director. View all 16 comments. Perhaps this is something I need to work on next year, but I considered any rating system, extremely subjective, arbitrary and frankly a little silly.
With that said I also admit that giving books low ratings 3 stars or less is difficult to me. So I did agonize a little bit about giving a low rating to this very popular novel, mostly because so many of my Goodreads friends loved it. We come to realize that what to many outsiders looks like a picture perfect, happing ending is anything but. This is my one big peeves when reading fiction: children or teens that sound either too childish or too grown-up for their age.
Although overall Remember Me Like This is a decent read, to me it felt flat. Somehow I craved that feeling of being surprised or engaged.

In fact, we knew very little of what happened to Justin Campbell, who vanished one day near his home outside Corpus Christi, TX. The book opens four years after his disappearance with the news that he has been found. Instead of shining the character spotlight on the kidnapped, Johnston r Much as Emma Donoghue did in 's smash hit RoomBret Anthony Johnston leads us through the aftermath of human captivity.
Instead of shining the character spotlight on the kidnapped, Johnston rotates the narrative through the perspectives of his parents, Laura and Eric, his younger brother, Griffin, and his grandfather, Cecil. Through flashbacks, we are immersed in their surreal existence, in which one world halted the day Justin disappeared and another spins on. Justin's room remains unchanged, except for the pile of birthday and Christmas gifts his mother buys for him every year.
The modest Campbell house suffers from neglect, as does the Campbell marriage. There are shadows everywhere: Laura is becoming one, present only at the Marine Lab where she volunteers; thirteen-year-old Griffin grows up in the shadow of his brother; and Eric lives a double life. It is an achingly real portrait of a family unable to grieve, yet losing hope as the years pass without word of their son.
Johnston masterfully maintains the tension of this loss and hope, even as we know that Justin has been safely returned to his family. That tension morphs from "What happened to Justin? Upon her son's return, Laura transforms, throwing open the literal curtains in the house and the figurative curtains of her depressed state. Griffin falls in love, becoming the center of attention in someone else's world, still playing second fiddle to his older brother at home.
I couldn't put this down until, well, I can't remember when I last had such a change of heart and brain while reading a book.
I was riveted for the first two-thirds, then the tension simply spluttered out and I couldn't wait to be done with it. Because the author was so intent on not bringing us into Justin's mind, the emotions and actions of the rest of the family became repetitive to the point of exasperation. Eric and Cecil's plot was melodrama that cheapened a nuanced and intense emotional thriller, but couldn't lift the narrative from doldrums of navel-gazing that brought down the final third.
The one character I most wanted to hear from, Justin, had a walk-on role in his own story. It was a strangely unsatisfying experience, yet this is tremendous, vivid writing from an author I would seek out again. View 2 comments. Feb 05, Ron Charles rated it liked it.

His parents, Eric and Laura, and his younger brother Griffin are all well-liked in their Corpus Christi community; they muddle their way through the four ensuing years, coming apart personally and as a family.
The genius of this author is that — without any manipulation — he closely examines what the granting of this fortuitous return really means to each of them. The emotions are so real that the writing took my breath away. How could she not understand such hideous gravity? Everywhere she looked, the absolute and crushing weight of the past. Other times, she would have sworn she was a sieve. Not normal. Not familiar. Not one. The writing is assured, confident and clear eyed; the characters are so real they could step out of the pages; and the insights are organic and beautifully realized.
These are all good people, regular and steady and seemingly unafflicted. I simply cannot recommend this book highly enough. I envy those who are starting it for the first time. View all 11 comments. For a book I do not remember reading. I think I have soap opera amnesia. It is the story of the Campbell family, whose eldest son Justin was kidnapped. It chooses to focus the majority of its time on what happens after Justin returns home.
How does a family that has been so brutally wounded begin to recover? As someone with a near-phobia of snakes, I didn't find the parts with Sasha slithering under the covers to be very charming. But, he was a very well developed asshole, with believable fears about his ability to be a capable father and husband.
If I had to choose a character I liked best, it would be Laura, the mother. She clings to hope so tightly. Years of excruciating waiting have made her fragile and unstable. She's also an avid reader who loves animals. Yes, even that stupid pet snake. Rant time! Now, at this point in Justin's Remember Me [Like This] (Radio Mix) - Metasonica - Remember Me (Like This) (CD), they are almost strangers. Laura spends her time caring for sick marine life, while Eric fucks another woman.
When he finds bottles of benzos, does Eric think to ask Laura about it? Leave them be, since their son is gone without a trace and Laura is clearly not well?
The dumb fuck flushes most of them down the toilet. First, he is not her doctor. He has no damn right. Second, don't flush pills! It goes straight into the water supply! He has no idea what her dosage is like. Going cold turkey off of something like Xanax is really dangerous. I would welcome a little Texas heat right now. It's not flowery or dramatic. The word choice acts to service the characters and their emotions.
It works for this type of story, where connecting with the characters and giving a damn about their psychological trials is crucial. Is this the 80s? The 80s with cell phones? Are we done reliving the 90s and I missed it? What happened to Justin was horrible, to understate things. But to go after Dwight's parents? A sick old woman on oxygen? In a review for About.
