it was amazing
bookshelves: netgalley, e-book

I was torn between giving this 4 or 5 stars. I loved Station Eleven, Emily's previous novel - and many of the same ingredients are used in this latest outing, The Glass Hotel. Multiple narratives twisted over numerous timelines, held together with beautifully poetic writing. Emily is expert at weaving threads and foreshadowing plot lines, while keeping the story moving forward. My only issue was that I felt some sections were bloated and could've done with a trim, but a minor gripe for an otherwise excellent novel, so 5*!

Book supplied by Netgalley for an honest review.
