The Glass House Book Review

House of Glass - Sophie Littlefield

This book took me about an hour and a half to read. It's fast paced and an easy to read but lacks in what makes you feel for the characters.


The Glass House shows Jen Glass's family with a home in Minneapolis. Things are going well for them until her father dies. Then the strangers come, Dan and Ryan and lock them in the basement. Jen and her husband will do anything to keep each other and her children safe but at what cost?


It's certainly an interesting plot. But I wanted more, it lacks in character development. Really, it lacks in character. Sure, we get some strange back stories for Jen's family and we see how much these characters love each other. But, I didn't feel anything.


I was easily able to skim over much of the book and still understand what was going on. I think it would have been better if it stayed one character view instead of constantly jumping around the entire family.


If you're looking for an easy, suspenseful story, The Glass House is a perfect book for you. Just don't expect much character wise or beyond the simply plot-line.
