    Jeannette Walls's memoir The Glass Castle was "nothing short of spectacular" (Entertainment Weekly). Now, in Half Broke Horses, she brings us the story of her grandmother, told in a first-person voice that is authentic, irresistible, and triumphant.

    Kathryn says: "A BETTER BOOK THAN "THE GLASS CASTLE""
    "Good and bad"
    Overall

    The story was interesting with a view of AZ, NM, through the early 20th century. An incorrect assumption was given that all Mormons live in polygamy. The group she referred to are fundamentalists and don't have anything to do with the 14,000,000 non polygamous Mormons around the world.

    The narration by the author was a mistake. Her voice dropped on almost every sentence which was a tough listen. Her son was blatantly absent of any character building and all was focused on RoseMary her daughter. It was a nice tribute to her grandmother who was a tough and interesting character.
