Read: The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel 📚★★★★★
Amazing multi viewpoint story. Writing had me invested in each of the diverse characters as they came into focus. Then their stories slowly fitted together. Beautiful. Really catches the way people imagine different lives.

@johnjohnston just read this too. Love the way she pivots from one character to the next. Slightly lost momentum when it got into the details of the Ponzi scheme but comes together well at the end.

@strandlines there are so many things I liked about this book. The way she handles imagined alternative lives, the 'ghosts', everything.
