review 1: This book surprised me; I picked it up unwittingly, not knowing how dark and haunting it would be- let this be your warning. I really appreciated the way the characters and your perception of them (good v bad) changed throughout the course of the book. I was close to giving this 3 stars because I felt like it lulled in the middle, but the beginning and ending were strong enough in my opinion to round up to 4. I'm still torn though... I don't necessarily like the way all the strings are magically tied together at the end.
review 2: I couldn't put the book down and will probably go back and re-read it at some point. There were some raw and disturbing threads but the book kept drawing me in. The author has an ability to write about male characters in a very convi
... morencing way. I enjoyed her development of the characters and the unfolding of the sometimes dark story. Most of all, I loved the setting in Newfoundland. My grandparents were from Newfoundland; I heard their dialect as I read Glass Boys, felt their surroundings and felt again my grandmother's telling of her family, friends and neighbour's stories. A powerful book, well written. less

Emotionally complex and haunting - I'll be looking for more from this author.
Well written; disturbing subject matter.
Excellent read.
Haunting story.
