Goodreads:  A man wakes up in a living room he doesn t recognize, unable to remember anything about himself. All he has are the few remnants of his identity scattered throughout the house clues to his past. He soon learns that he is Charles Lang, a brilliant scientist whose wife, Julie, and daughter, Jess, mysteriously disappeared several years ago. Soon, he begins to recover memories memories that may or may not be his own and as he does, he realizes that only by uncovering the details of his former life will he have any hope of being reunited with Julie and Jess. A haunting tale of love and longing, fate and free will, and the easily blurred lines between fiction and reality, Glass Shatters explores the risks of trying to reinvent oneself, and the dangers of pushing science to its limits."

Kritters Thoughts:  What I thought would be a mystery/thriller book ended up being a mystery/thriller with an interesting sci fi twist.  I don't tend to read much sci fi, but this was still rooted in the mystery feel, so I sort of enjoyed the amount of science fiction in this book.

Charles Lang wakes up and doesn't know where he is, who he is or what is going on around him.  With a young girl and woman as a neighbor who seem familiar and an old man roaming around his home.  Hopefully his neighbors can help him find the truth.

Using Charles' search for the truth helped drive the story and kept me the reader involved and I like those kind of stories where you are figuring things out with the main character. 

I am not sure if I "got" all of the science, but the things that I may not have understood didn't ruin the book for me, so I am ok with that.  Every once in awhile I don't mind if I leave a book not "getting" it all.

If you are an avid reader of the mystery genre and don't read much science fiction like me, then you may enjoy this one.  

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
