Format: Kindle Edition
After the first few pages I was hooked. I received the book in electronic format early on Labor Day. I read a few pages, expecting to then move on to something else, something recreational, like enjoying the sun and weather outside, or perhaps catching-up on a little school work. I didn't go outside that day, and I didn't do any school work. No, instead I found myself glued to the computer screen. eagerly scrolling the mouse wheel to see what happened next. I'm a Luddite when it comes to literature. I prefer the printed work, in book for, when it comes to reading. On a few occasions, I have attempted to read electronic books and met with little success. Eventually, I accepted that an ebook reader, such as the Kindle might be what I need. Delta Green: Through a Glass, Darkly captured my attention and I read the entire thing, on a computer screen. That's no small feat for me. Even though I am an avid reader, It often takes me days, if not weeks to finish a book. I had no trouble finishing Detwiller's book. His writing style is simple and engaging, neither overly flowery or distractingly spartan. It flowed, without drawing attention to itself.

The story is interesting and fun. There are various references to Delta Green lore and scenarios although, I have never read any of the other fiction and found it easy enough to follow along. I would recommend this story for fans of Delta Green and for fans of fiction involving vast government conspiracies and aliens. It's a Lovecraftian work but builds upon themes established in Delta Green RPG's so if you're not familiar with those then you might not enjoy it as much as I did.

An entertaining book if you're well acquainted with the Delta Green universe, and it was good to see some of these characters again - it's hard to believe it's been more than a decade since Tynes' The Rules of Engagement - but the book itself feels less like a novel and more like a 200-page justification for a new Delta Green edition.

The plot itself is very much a rushed mess, and its initial central mystery could have made a much better, longer novel in better hands. As it stands, things happen too quickly in the book with no apparent rhyme or reason, with some events occurring almost because a keeper needs to get his players moving and not because they necessarily make any plot sense.

If you're not into Delta Green, chances are this will feel like a gorier Michael Bay movie. Recommended only for people familiar with the setting, and preferably the previous novels as well.

Delta Green: Through a Glass, Darkly is an interesting beast. For those in the know who have read other Delta Green books it is almost required reading. It makes me itching for more, for a new source book and for more stories. For those who've never heard of Delta Green on the other hand it is probably impossibly puzzling and strange. Through a Glass, Darkly makes no apologies for drawing on a decade and a half or more of Delta Green lore and weaving together plot threads from a variety of sources, including previously released novels and short stories as well as gaming supplements. It gives us a wild ride, and a terrifying insight into the activities of the darker sides of the Delta Green universe as well as that of Delta Green itself.

So in short, if you know what a green box is, or you have heard of the horrors of Groversville, or if NRO DELTA scares you, or if you sincerely think A-Cell are utter soulless bastards, then this book is for you. If you don't, well, Project GARNET will soon clear things up.

Delta Green. Simply one of the BEST things to happen to the Mythos since....well, H.P. himself. The stories are engaging and full of action, the mixing of historical fact with Mythos 'weird' is entertaining, and the amount of story you get for the cost of this book is a huge value.

Definitely recommended for fans of the Mythos.

Each chapter is a piece of the puzzle that makes up the plot of this book. It's a fun read, but not for someone looking for a straight and simple narrative. Who's on who's side? Which side is controlled by whom (or what)? Are we rooting for the right slightly-insane character or is that other lunatic gonna be the real hero?

I guess it's easier to just say that the book is Delta Green, through and through. And that I like it that way.

I am a big fan of Lovecraft and have played and run Call of Cthulhu. However, I have never played DG, or even read the rulebook. Having read this book, I wish I had. Although I enjoyed the book very much, I know there were a lot of things I was missing because I am not familiar with the DG setting. (It was near the end of the book before I finally realized who the factions were.)

That said, you do not have to be familiar with DG to enjoy this book. It kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat throughout, never knowing what was going on. The fact that the plot jumps from place to place without any seeming connection raises the tension. (This being DG, there is, of course, actually a connection, but what that connection is develops slowly throughout the book.)

Detwiller doesn't disappoint in this installment of the Delta Green story. Nightmares of noir come hard and fast as we watch the world go towards Hell in a handbasket, save for the lone crazies who see clearly and strive mightily to keep blissfully ignorant mankind safe from undreamed of horrors . The story is compelling as it unwinds and sufficiently outre to keep the interest of even a jaded horror fan. The gritty noire style is pretty well maintained. While Detwiller is not Hammett or Chandler, he is darned good and sustains the mood with dark imagery that rarely fails to depress.

All in all a compelling read that is faithful to the genre without being trite or just more of the same old thing. It is also delightfully familiar and for those of us who enjoy the paper and pencil RPG about Delta Green, you can feel the scenario unroll as you read.
