I was so excited to get the epub book The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel. While I struggled to figure out how to read it – and finally discovered that the iPad was the best way (OMG – LOVE reading on the iPad – it’s so GIANT for these old eyes) – ultimately, it was a huge disappointment. I LOVED Station Eleven and had high hopes for this one. But it didn’t live up even remotely. This story centers around Vincent (a woman – I found that challenging each time I read it) who has an interesting life bouncing from place to place and ultimately as the wife of a shady investor. While it was a quick read, none of the characters were ultimately likable, and it was such a far cry from Station Eleven’s magnificence that I would recommend skipping it.
