    The Sky Manifest by Brian Panhuyzen is an eminently melancholy novel Nathan Soderquist is on a quest across Canada a quest wrought from pain and memories After his wife and 18 month old daughter are killed in an accident, Nathan is trying to escape from the pain and the memories by traveling Nathan is filled with anger over his loss and seems bent on self destruction While he is driving, living a nomadic existence, he s also seemingly seeking out confrontations and fights He is drinking t The Sky Manifest by Brian Panhuyzen is an eminently melancholy novel Nathan Soderquist is on a quest across Canada a quest wrought from pain and memories After his wife and 18 month old daughter are killed in an accident, Nathan is trying to escape from the pain and the memories by traveling Nathan is filled with anger over his loss and seems bent on self destruction While he is driving, living a nomadic existence, he s also seemingly seeking out confrontations and fights He is drinking too much But he is also writing poetic descriptions of the ever changing weather.The escalating anger Nathan displays and the increasing violence he demonstrates cannot release him from his memories or his culpability Nathan feels inconsolable and he is seeking out punishment, but what he really wants is atonement for the role he played in his wife and child s death While he meets several people along the way and we know that there are others who would help him, Nathan is bent on self destruction and that makes his acts distressing to follow at times He actively runs away from any help or consolation.While the protagonist may not be able to control himself, Panhuyzen s prowess with language elevates this sombre, distressing novel above the ordinary The Sky Manifest is not an easy novel to read The raw violence and emotions can be overwhelming highly recommendedDisclosure My Kindle edition was courtesy of ECW Press via Netgalley for review purposes

    A wonderfully written emotional read The main character Nathan has lost his wife and child in a car accident that he is believes is his fault Unable to cope with this he travels, running away from himself in a sense On his journey he is faced with many things that in some ways break him down but in others, put him back together I will say that this book is full of raw emotion, but the author has done an amazing job with his words I believe that if an author can get you to feel for a charact A wonderfully written emotional read The main character Nathan has lost his wife and child in a car accident that he is believes is his fault Unable to cope with this he travels, running away from himself in a sense On his journey he is faced with many things that in some ways break him down but in others, put him back together I will say that this book is full of raw emotion, but the author has done an amazing job with his words I believe that if an author can get you to feel for a character and truly feel it, then they are a great writer.I was not expecting the ending

    It s been a while since I ve felt saddened to finish a novel, but The Sky Manifest did it I thoroughly enjoyed reading it As much as I was keen to turn the pages and discover what happens next, I spent a bit of time re reading impressive sentences, and letting scenes wash over me At times, the language is precise and descriptive in a way that may discourage casual readers, but this also lent to the magic of the story.

    This was a crazy read with a crazy story It was also a story of many, many words It took a while for me to get into the book because of all the adjectives and metaphors, but once I got my bearings in the land of uber description, I thought the book was really well written.
