Yes, I read 'The Glass Hotel' over the weekend. I liked it very much, although I thought Vincent somehow would survive despite her what appears to be her fate in the first few pages when we 'begin at the end'.

In some ways 'The Glass Hotel' seems more of a pandemic novel than Station Eleven, what with its many doomed characters, the imagined counterlives, and the missing sense of interconnectedness when we are in isolation.

And because of the ghosts.

Speaking of ghosts, I also read 'Ghost' by Jason Reynolds, the first book in a four-book series. Well, that one I listened to. I really like the reader, Guy Lockard, who reads most (or all) of Reynolds' books. Reynolds, who mostly writes for middle schoolers, wrote 'Ain't Burned All the Bright,' which I commented on earlier. Also currently reading 'The Club' by a husband and wife writing team who use the name Ellery Lloyd, 'The Elegance of the Hedgehog' by Muriel Barbery, and 'Rules of Prey' by John Sanford.
