    this story definitely falls under the whole its not what you say, but how you say it.honestly, i couldnt care less about the subject of this novel a good 1 3 of the book is about the 2008 financial crisis and the collapse of a ponzi scheme that is not something that interests me one bit but how mandel portrays this topic, how she effectively structures the narrative, and how she intertwines the lives of the characters is really fascinating i found myself enjoying this because i liked how the this story definitely falls under the whole its not what you say, but how you say it honestly, i couldnt care less about the subject of this novel a good 1 3 of the book is about the 2008 financial crisis and the collapse of a ponzi scheme that is not something that interests me one bit but how mandel portrays this topic, how she effectively structures the narrative, and how she intertwines the lives of the characters is really fascinating i found myself enjoying this because i liked how the sto...

    I m not usually attracted to books that feature financial elements, but in this case I made an exception Simply because I love how this author writes and the way she puts together a story I m so glad I went with my intuition, which shows sometimes you just need to trust a favored author.Although this is about a Ponzi scheme, it is so muchIt is the story of Vincent, a female, named after Edna St Vincent Milay , and she is a fasinating character A sort of chameleon, trying to find her I m not usu...

    It must be incredibly difficult for a writer to follow a monster hit like Station Eleven Everyone, it seems, is dying to read The Glass Hotel, and that includes me I normally think it s a little obnoxious to review an advance copy 6 months before the book s publication, but I simply could not wait to dive into this one So I will get this out of the way first The Glass Hotel is not post apocalyptic, it s not dystopian, it s straight literary fiction which is not to say that it doesn t have It must be incredibly difficult for a writer to follow a monster hit like Station Eleven Everyone, it seems, is dying to read The Glass Hotel, and that includes me I normally think it s a little obnoxious to review an advance copy 6 months before the book s publication, but I simply could not wait to dive into this one So I will get this out of the way first The Glass Hotel is not post apocalyptic, it s not dystopian, it s straight literary fiction which is not to say that it doesn t have its little moments of strangeness This novel may not pack the same plot driven punch as its predecessor, but in the end I was glad of that The simpler premise allows the beauty and brilliance of the author s writing to take centre stage.The Glass Hotel is set between the mid 1990s and the late 2010s, and it s about a Ponzi scheme I have to admit I wasn t...

    You should eat broken glass.The sentence above, a remote island hotel, a Ponzi scheme, a container ship, a lost young woman, and a ghostly presence provide the framework for this masterful novel about greed, guilt, ambition, and love The writing is languid and dreamy yet still page turning as the stories of the interconnected characters fold back upon themselves This is a mesmerizing, unearthly novel with characters throwing stones and crossing lines Dont miss it You should eat broken glass The sentence above, a remote island hotel, ...
