I would say I struggled to finish, but the book ended before I cared.
This book was over at the point when most stories seem to take off. "This was a production of..." *Wha?...huh? It's over? Did I MISS 4 HOURS?!?* Nope. Just done.
Ok.

I was three chapters short of finishing. I didn't care enough to listen. Decent narration.
I typically listen two hours a day to audiobooks while I get ready for work. I found myself re-listening to chapters because it all sounded the same to me. I eventually gave up and have a new audiobook for Monday.

I struggled with disliking the main character. I kept thinking Rabbit, Run. Please. I thought he was emotionally stunted, extremely patronizing and kind of a dick for somebody so altruistic. what was I missing? Was this irony? Because really...no. The story was fine, I guess. We listened to the entire thing. But we did make a running psychoanalysis on our very long car ride.

More than four hundred abandoned suitcases filled with patients’ belongings were found when Willard Psychiatric Center closed in 1995 after 125 years of operation. They are skillfully examined here and compared to the written record to create a moving—and devastating—group portrait of twentieth-century American psychiatric care.

I was interested in the topic, and was left feeling saddened that this treatment mirrors patients' experiences to this day. I was propelled forward through the stories of individuals and the common reaction I had, was that of anger.
