The Glass Castle was recommended to me by a friend and my mother-in-law as an incredible book. I was apprehensive because I read some comments by other aubible users about the narration being quite dry. However, I listened to the sample and purchased the book anyway...I thought that the narration was fine. This book was wriiten in first person and told, not as a story, but as an account of what has happened in the author's life. Also, the author narrated it herself and told it as if she was talking to a friend, literally sharing her life story. I have a ton of respect for the author for sharing her story and for overcoming so many obstacles. It goes to show, life is more about what you make it, as opposed to settling for what your given.
I loved this book...it took me a few chapters to get into it, but I will definately get the next one. The only negative to listening to it on audio is that the voices are all done by the same person and then there is 'erotic' dialogue and it sounds silly. But that's it. Other than that, I would recommend.
I am a true Sylvia Browne fan; as far as I'm concerned, she can do no wrong. I love the information that is provided in her books, although this is not the best book by her, I still loved it. One thing I wish was different would be for Sylvia to have narrated it herself...the last book by her I listened to, she narrated it, and it was a nice personal touch.
