    Jack Glass eBook ¶ Hardcover Read Jack GlassWhat a wonderful thing this book is Roberts himself describes it as arising from a desire to collide together some of the conventions of 'Golden Age' science fiction and 'Golden Age' detective fiction He does that beautifully but he does so much Does the book satisfy as a mystery? One hundred per cent I'd say Of course there are three mysteries and each of them articulates in a different way And each of them pays off beautifully But it's not even scratching the surface of the novel to say that when the narrator promises both to give us the answer in advance and to surprise us with the final revelation it's no idle boastIn Jack Roberts has

    Jack Glass eBook ¶ Hardcover Read Jack Glass25 5Jack Glass by Adam Roberts is a book that tries too much to be many things but ultimately fails in most if not all of them Here’s my personal view and opinion why this is so and why I was disappointed As usual I will avoid going into too much detail describing what this book is about you can read the synopsis up there ^ Instead I will go straight into my review Be wary this review will probably contain light spoilers but nothing too revealing uick summary?

    Jack Glass eBook ¶ Hardcover Read Jack GlassHoly wow I loved this bookThe book is in three sections and the first just sucked me in I was obsessed with the world Roberts created within nine pages Roberts's writing is marvelous; tender yet precise dancing in rhythms then breaking out of step like a flaneur's pause The world he created is compelling and vast and utterly believable The second and third sections had a different focalizing character and so I couldn't relate to them as easily And then there is a plot development in section three which other reviewers have commented on which seemed unlikely And unnecessary And lowered my opi
