Jack Glass

Summary å Jack Glass 107 He plays with the genre whatever uestions he asks of the reader Roberts never loses sight of the need to entertain Filled with wonderfully gruesome moments and liberal doses of sly humor this novel is built around three gripping HowDunnits that challenge notions of crime punishment power and freedom. Roberts books are truly difficult to rate because there isn t anything else like them in the modern SF genre He writes beautifully really beautifully the kind of image dense well crafted sentences that you have to read three times just to savour the feel of them sliding through your neurons His ideas are magical and he s no imaginative slouch each novel he writes sports a new and freshly minted world of wondrous veracitySet in a future where humans thickly clot the space between the worlds of the Solar System and are ruled most oppressively Jack Glass is a story about a kind of cosmic terrorist but presented as a series of three murder mysteries the literary conceit here being Roberts take on the old country house Agatha Christie style whodunnit To a point this is what we have but the detective angle proves a surface gloss to SF world buildery The murders take back seat and we re soon hip deep in Roberts usual concern of the unworthy swain courting the unobtainable damsel Who are we to complain All authors have their literary drums to beat but with the gruesome first installment of Jack Glass it appears at first that we have escaped this particular obsession and it s something of a surprise and disappointment to be presented with it againGlass himself is a confident capable man much sure of himself than many of Roberts earlier protagonists Part of the book s draw is the slow revelation of the various layers to his character and the discovery of the romantic flaw in Glass is well judged if slightly disappointing by which I mean it fits this story perfectly but anyway see above The dividing up of the story into three undoes the pacing and the contrast between the first taut superbly claustrophic tale and the languid tone of the latter two unseats the reader There s a little too much time spent detailing the inner thoughts of teenage girls something Roberts already tackled brilliantly in By Light Alone He does it well admittedly but too much hereAlthough this is not his strongest work overall Jack Glass contains some of Roberts most artful writing and the first part of the book is among the best SF stories from one of today s finest British SF writers

Summary å Jack Glass 107 Golden Age SF meets Golden Age Crime in this British Science Fiction Award winner for best novel from the author of Swiftly New Model Army and Yellow Blue Tibia Jack Glass is the murderer we know this from the start Yet as this extraordinary novel unfolds readers will be astonished to discover how. A uantity of blood is spilled in this story I m sorry to say and a good many people die and there is some politics too There is danger and fear Accordingly I have told his tale in the form of a murder mystery or to be precise and at all costs we must be precise three connected murder mysteriesBut I intend to play fair with you reader right from the start or I m no true Watson So let me tell everything now at the beginning before the story gets going Such a promising beginning a sly narration word play and enticing hints A troublesome book very well written cold and only intellectually interesting characters dysconjugate plotting and rather engaging world building The result is a book that is clearly well done but doesn t ever reach that point of emotional resonance or engagementAfter the prologue by the aforementioned sly narrator the first sectionstory In the Box is about seven men placed on an asteroid as part of their prison sentence It will be eleven years before the ship returns so until then survival is up to them A fascinating brutal and uncomfortable character study as the seven men engage in the adult version of Lord of the Flies The reader knowing that a murder will take place lends an interesting tension to the already violent group dynamics I was poised on the edge of a reading seat wondering how and when it would happen Oh and the ending A clever disgusting sueamish solution All this and uotes at

Summary å Jack Glass 107 He committed the murders and by the end of the book their sympathies for the killer will be fully engaged Riffing on the tropes of crime fiction the country house murder the locked room mystery and imbued with the feel of golden age SF this is another bravura performance from Roberts Whatever games. 3 crimes scenes 1 manMass murderer Jack Glass is on loose and the Solar System is not safe Enveloping theoretical physics and power dynamics Roberts offers this suspense It uestions values from loyalty to the ever present does the ends justify the meansBroken down into three separate vignettes it s not immediately obvious that these are seuential events but the impetus for Jack s actions unfolds The first vignette In the Box I loved it was gritty science fiction and a big surprise Big My favorite easily The second part The FTL Murders was very slow in comparison and it spent a great deal of time developing two characters where the conflict of human versus science are anthropomorphized too much time is you ask me Dawdled The third vignette The Impossible Gun brings the stories full circle connecting them in the third crime scene I liked this better than the FTL but not as much as Box but that was probably because I d figured out the resolution or rather one version of possible resolutions and I liked mine better than the real ending I got the science part 100% the human part not as much therefore I was disappointed in how it drifted and settled I guess the surprise in that one was one that I didn t see the basis for it existing but then again I don t think it was suppose to be rational Ended with me going really JackSo the fluffy ending and saggy middle kinda deflated the joy from this one Eh
