The Glass Hotel is an intricately plotted novel loaded with characters, plot lines and time changes that make for a frustrating read. Yes, Emily St. John Mandel has the writing chops to handle this type of novel but are we ready to subject ourselves to another story about a Ponzi scheme? Living and dead characters haunt the book. Trying to make the hotel a character only partially works. So, I can’t recommend it unless you were a big fan of her last book Station Eleven.
