    Loved it! This was a well written story of the life of Jeannette Walls and her adventurous upbringing. The Glass Castle carried me through this journey as I learned so much about this inspirational character! Jeannette is strong, determined, kind and genuine. She is courageous and level minded. These characteristics get her through the highs and lows! What an amazing ride! I would recommend this book to anyone!

    Great story about the author’s life journey with an unconventional family. It is her journey and written in her style. I totally get the appeal of this book as at times it is heart warming and at others you feel infuriated. There was a lack of emotion connected with most of the book which I found difficult. As a side note I’m so devastated that Child Welfare had not followed up on this family. These poor kids needed beds and baths. These kids were neglected by all....a vast travesty.
  • Pretty good book

    This book drew me in from the first page! I grew up in the West Virginia area and the entire story was fascinating and so well written. I plan on reading anything from Ms. Walls.
