    Haunting and compelling

    The Glass Hotel tells a moving, haunted story, about people and events and choices. It takes place in the woods and in the city, on an island, on a ship, ranging from simple life with only the basics to the rarefied air of the very rich, where life is nothing like most of us know or ever will know. It’s full of fascinating characters – a (mostly) recovering opioid addict, a bartender, cook, wife, artist, hotel concierge, fraudulent investment banker and his victims - all with some little quirk, something that makes you remember them, and makes you ask yourself, “Are we all like that? Just a little bit off?” Everyone has a secret past or hasn’t quite found the happiness, satisfaction or peace they thought their choices, their luck, their wild success would bring them. But what is luck or choice or is this just the way life is? Are those really ghosts they see, or are those just the things and people and events your mind won’t let you forget, always places just at the outside of your vision, to remind you of what was, what is, and what might have been? The Glass Hotel is a melancholy tale, weaving in and out of these characters’ lives, highlighting turning points and roads not taken, leading to the now and away from the what if? A cloud cover of sadness and regret, not quite happy, hovers over everything. The story is full of lies, loss, anger, hatred, resentment, and fleeting happiness. Author Emily St. John Mandel has created an environment with a cast of characters so compelling you can’t turn away. Once you meet them you need to follow their stories, and it makes you think about your own life. Have your choices led you to where you are, or is it fate? I received an advance copy of The Glass Hotel from the publisher, Penguin Random House. All opinions are my own. Emily St. John Mandel is an excellent writer and has told an excellent story that I highly recommend.
