    Story
    (707)

    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."

    "A CAPTIVATING READ"

    What made the experience of listening to The Glass Castle the most enjoyable?

    The author seamlessly wove the events of her life into a beautiful memoir.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jeanette, because she persevered and kept a positive outlook on life even in the midst of troubling situations.


    What does Jeannette Walls bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Authentic dialect, emphasizing words/phrases, emotion


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

    Several...the time when her dad stole the money from their piggy bank, the time when Jeanette left her family and reminisced about watching her dad get smaller and eventually disappear, when Jeanette gave her final goodbye to her dad


    Any additional comments?

    So many moving parts it's hard to name them all...

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "HILARIOUS!"

    What made the experience of listening to Bossypants the most enjoyable?

    The fact that it was narrated by Tina Fey made it even funnier!


    What about Tina Fey’s performance did you like?

    The "punch" her jokes had because she was able to say them herself!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed out loud...OFTEN!!!


    Any additional comments?

    At times, her voice seemed to fade out to barely audible, and I couldn't decide whether or not that was intentional.
