    Jeannette Walls grew up with parents whose ideals and stubborn nonconformity were both their curse and their salvation. Rex and Rose Mary Walls had four children. In the beginning, they lived like nomads, moving among Southwest desert towns, camping in the mountains. Rex was a charismatic, brilliant man who, when sober, captured his children's imagination. Rose Mary painted and wrote and couldn't stand the responsibility of providing for her family; she called herself an "excitement addict."

    Story
    Where does The Glass Castle rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Excellent.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was moved by the ability of the young and growing children to take over and be the functional parents of their very dysfunctional parents. That they still seemingly loved them both and did not, on the most part, disown them.


    Any additional comments?

    Hard book to read at times as no one ever wants to see children live as they did.
