Glasshouse (again)

I panned this a week or so back.

Picking it up to tidy it away, I did the "I'm never going to read this properly, so let's look at the ending", and a random flick through the pages.

Yeah, there would have been some pay-off (they do break out of what might more accurately be termed "I Love Lucy meets the Prisoner" at the very end); and there seem to have been some slow dribbles of what had gone before. But, honestly, neither the characters nor the setting engaged me in the least, and it was only the back-story -- the "out in the Accelerated World" bits -- that I would have been reading it for.
