“(A) promising debut … with well-drawn psychological portraits of realistically flawed people.”
–Publishers Weekly, notable book
"The terror of this dark fantasy lies in Gropp’s grotesque creatures, who are grounded in reality...Bad Glass is a disturbing yet immensely entertaining story." --Romance Times (4 1/2 Star review)
"Well-drawn and utterly believable characters...Anyone who enjoys thoughtful fantasies will find much to celebrate here."
--Library Journal (starred review)

This book was a huge disappointment. It started off with a great premise, but it became a disjointed mess quickly. You never find out what the hell happened to the characters or even what was behind the happenings.
A total let-down of a book.

This book received four stars from me for one reason alone, The imagery. Mr. Gropp provided allowed me to actually feel the story, the pictures the main character dean took, as well as the place he visited. My issue lied not necessarily in the main story, though most events were short and confined to the few page chapters, my issue stuck with the climax. Or well all of the climaxes. Each chapter beginning with a description of a picture or an event that would be taken or take place later on in the chapter led up to a sort of climax each chapter that afterwards immediately began building up to the next climax over and over finally leading to the end which left me feeling numb and without closure on the story. The book is indeed a page turner full of odd clues and mystery but when jigsaw is over the puzzle is left a few pieces short of something spectacular. But the fact that he kept me turning over and over until I had the book finished hours after buying it earns him 4 stars.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
