This was an interesting story with a great narration. It was a very intriguing and captivating story to listen to while simultaneously being productive. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in well written memoirs.
This was an incredible story! I admire the drive and persistence of the author and her siblings. They were truly blessed with spirit and fortitude to overcome. Read this book and appreciate what you have
Dark but tender read . You will have compassion for children growing up in such chaos And compassion for the parents who's madness and different mind set drives the story
Jeannette Walls in her memoir, The Glass Castle, paints a different picture of those to choose to live outside the box. She paints a vivid picture of her parents and their dual decision to reject the conventional trappings of society. Both self-obsessed, they gave birth to a band of offspring--never children, always adults.
On a personal level, there were parts of this book that struck chords vaguely familiar--a long time ago when every need was justified by a hard lesson learned.
I love this book. I've read the book several times and now enjoyed listening to it. Her story makes my childhood seem "normal". It also gave me a glimpse of why some people choose to live non-traditional lives on the street.
