Nerdy, introverted genius lepidopterist, Lawson Gale, is an expert on butterflies. He finds himself in a small town in Tasmania on a quest from an old professor to find an elusive species that may or may not even exist.
Local Parks and Wildlife officer, Jack Brighton, is an ordinary guy who loves his life in the sleepy town of Scottsdale. Along with his Border collie dog, Rosemary, his job, and good friends, he has enough to keep from being lonely.
But then he meets Lawson, and he knows he’s met someone special. There’s more to catching butterflies, Jack realises. Sometimes the most elusive creatures wear bow ties, and sometimes they can’t be caught at all.
Lawson soon learns there are butterflies he can’t learn about it in books. They exist only in a touch, in a kiss, in a smile. He just has to let go first, so these butterflies can fly.
Imago is the story of finding love, bow ties, and butterflies.
This was just so fun. I wasn’t so thrilled by the first pages, but as I keep advancing in the book, I got more and more enthusiast about it. The last pages were fantastic, I couldn’t stop reading.
Lawson was adorable, I can’t find other word to describe him. He was so cute. It was so easy to love him. Jack was also a nice character, but Lawson steal the show. The way they talk to each other was lovely, and they were so great together. They just seem so right for each other.
The time that took the relationship to develop was too short. Generally that’s something that bothers me a lot in a book, but this one made the difference. The relationship was very believable and it was easy to understand why the feelings start so strong in such a short time, they were absolutely perfect for each other. The part about their jobs was also something I enjoyed a lot. I got to learn a few things, which is always welcome.
For some reason I didn’t loved it as much as other readers, it might be because the little problem I had getting myself into the story at the beginning, but overall it was really fun, I think any reader would love it.
