Glass Houses by Louise Penny Book Summary

An instant New York Times Bestseller and August 2017 LibraryReads pick!

“Penny’s absorbing, intricately plotted 13th Gamache novel proves she only gets better at pursuing dark truths with compassion and grace.” —PEOPLE

“Louise Penny wrote the book on escapist mysteries.” —The New York Times Book Review

“You won't want Louise Penny's latest to end….Any plot summary of Penny’s novels inevitably falls short of conveying the dark magic of this series.... It takes nerve and skill — as well as heart — to write mysteries like this. ‘Glass Houses,’ along with many of the other Gamache books, is so compelling that, for the space of reading it, you may well feel that much of what’s going on in the world outside the novel is ‘just noise.’” —Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post

When a mysterious figure appears in Three Pines one cold November day, Armand Gamache and the rest of the villagers are at first curious. Then wary. Through rain and sleet, the figure stands unmoving, staring ahead.

From the moment its shadow falls over the village, Gamache, now Chief Superintendent of the Sûreté du Québec, suspects the creature has deep roots and a dark purpose. Yet he does nothing. What can he do? Only watch and wait. And hope his mounting fears are not realized.

But when the figure vanishes overnight and a body is discovered, it falls to Gamache to discover if a debt has been paid or levied.

Months later, on a steamy July day as the trial for the accused begins in Montréal, Chief Superintendent Gamache continues to struggle with actions he set in motion that bitter November, from which there is no going back. More than the accused is on trial. Gamache’s own conscience is standing in judgment.

In Glass Houses, her latest utterly gripping book, number-one New York Times bestselling author Louise Penny shatters the conventions of the crime novel to explore what Gandhi called the court of conscience. A court that supersedes all others.

Profound. I've read several of Louise Penny's books and admit to being a fan. Her ability to bring place and character to life is profound. This story seems to delve deeper in moral/ethical paradox than her previous work, but never to the detriment of the narrative. In "Glass Houses", I found myself both wanting to read faster to learn what happened next and yet trying to slow down to savor the beauty of the story. In the end, I am even more convinced of her artistry than ever. Louise Penny is a gift.

Glass Houses. Louise Penny is .... oh! What to say? She has created a place of refuge and sanctuary for all of us. I lost my partner about 6 years ago and I will never be the same. But- she is the one who discovered "Still Life." We can be together again... snuggling together at the Bistro in front of the fireplace, reading books together again and forever.

Read in one sitting during Hurricane Irma. This book was fantastic beyond belief. I have always enjoyed Ms Penny's novels but the capture of the impact of the opioids trade was monumental.

Bad. Could not finish it, still don’t know what it was about

Worth it. Tough to get into at the beginning, and sometimes difficult to follow the chronology, but worth the effort. The good guys do win in the end, but not without sacrifice and consequence. Overall, enjoyed the read.

Still Life. I have read every book in Louise’s Inspector Gamache series. I can say that without a doubt every book is excellent. They can be read as stand alone books but then the reader would miss out on the richness and complexity of the characters and of life itself. Because of Louise’s stories I have grown to enjoy and appreciate poetry. I assume that the author is writing the poetry that is attributed to Ruth. Every line touches me deep within and makes me think and feel. It may seem unlikely to some but I can say that by reading Louise’s books I have become more tolerant and less judgmental of others. Although the greatest gift I come away with after reading one of the author’s books is a newfound nonjudgmental,tolerance of myself,well most of the time anyway. But the sense of self love and acceptance,faults and all, is by far the greatest gift of her stories. Merci.

Glass houses Louise Penny. Second time reading it after rereading the whole Gamache series in preparation for the next book. Some things I missed the first time through, and that adds to the total immersion of Louise Penny’s writing.

Worth the wait. I waited for this with such anticipation and hard as I tried to stretch it out I could not - I ate it all in one glorious gulp. One caveat - you can't skim this one. It requires real focus to keep the timeline straight and the characters in line. Little things mean a lot. A great read.

Superb. As always, it is wonderful to be back in Three Pines, following Gamache and the fabulous characters around him.

A wondrous addition to the series. I read hundreds of books each year and enjoy or are at least interested in most of them. Louise Penny's books, however, have drawn me into the tiny town in Quebec and never released me. Most of the characters have flaws, but their essential goodness shines through. This book was wondrous, but I suggest that you start with the first in the series.

Beat One Yet. Oh my!!! The best one yet.My first review because Louise Penny made me laugh and cry for remarkable characters and LOVE!

Makes you hungry. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, both for the crime and the food! The tragedy of the opioid epidemic is seen here from the criminal’s point of view but also from those who have had real life experience with it.

Dragged on. This book would've been better with less conjured drama and less insignificant characters. It dragged on way too long. The storyline itself was decent, but took way too long to get to the point. Certainly not a page turner.

Another great one!. I love this series and this is another not to be missed.
