See Glass is a 2020 political thriller by Ido Graf, spanning from the fall of Berlin in 1945 to modern day.
The book blends its fictional narrative with real world historical events, sometimes blurring the veil between fiction and nonfiction. This ambiguity between what’s real and what’s not is also a key piece of the book as a journalist works to unravel a story that at first seems unbelievable. The use of real events also helps to add a sense of weight and believability to the greater narrative. Graf has clearly done his research on these events and other subjects.
The novels pacing remains fairly consistent with a strong hook in the first chapter. For those who don’t do a ton of reading or may be daunted by a near 400 page book, See Glass is a good place to give it a try. The book is broken into 85 chapters plus a prologue and epilogue. Graf typically does a good job throughout keeping the material easy to digest, even when working in some French and German here and there.
See Glass exist in the same vein as the political thrillers popularized by writers like the late Tom Clancy. Its short chapters and an interesting plot make it a good entry point for those looking to read more or longer fiction.
From the back cover: Have you ever considered if the current political turmoil is being purposely manipulated? And if so, to what ends?
