There are points in the story that I asked myself where the book was getting at or what it is trying to say. I know it is a post-colonial literature, so naturally I was looking for a Political commentary but was disappointed that I got a love story that lacks backbone. Minke and Annelies fell inlove immediately after they met and I am not really a fan of the kind of story. I was annoyed by Annelies. She was being immature and helpless. She was so weak and needy. But I liked reading about everyone else, especially the European friends of Minke, who supplied the information about colonial Indonesia.

House of Glass. A novel of heroism, passion, and betrayal, it provides a spectacular conclusion to a series hailed as one of the great works of modern literature.
At the start of House of Glass, Minke, writer and leader of the dissident movement, is now imprisoned—and the narrative has switched to Pangemanann, a former policeman, who has the task of spying and reporting on those who continue the struggle for independence.
But the hunter is becoming the hunted. Pangemanann is a victim of his own conscience and has come to admire his adversaries.
He must decide whether the law is to safeguard the rights of the people or to control the people. He fears the loss of his position, his family, and his self-respect. At last Pangemanann sees that his true opponents are not Minke and his followers, but rather the dynamism and energy of a society awakened. As the world moves into the twentieth century, Minke, one of the few European-educated Javanese, optimistically starts a new life in a new town: With his enrollment in medical school and the opportunity to meet new people, there is every reason to believe that he can leave behind the tragedies of the past.
But Minke can no more escape his past than he can escape his situation as part of an oppressed people under a foreign power. As his world begins to fall apart, Minke draws a small but fervent group around him to fight back against colonial exploitation.
During the struggle, Minke finds love, friendship, and betrayal—with tragic consequences. And he goes from wanting to understand his world to wanting to change it.
