Now a major motion picture from Lionsgate starring Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts. MORE THAN SEVEN YEARS ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST The perennially bestselling, extraordinary, one-of-a-kind, "nothing short of spectacular" (Entertainment Weekly) memoir from one of the world's most gifted storytellers. The Glass Castle is a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette's brilliant and charismatic father captured his children's imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn't want the responsibility of raising a family. The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. They fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered. The Glass Castle is truly astonishing--a memoir permeated by the intense love of a peculiar but loyal family.… (més)

A memoir of a family raised in extreme poverty and the children achieve a decent life for themselves.
  bentstoker | Jan 26, 2024 |
Friends have been telling me to read this book for years but I thought the subject matter seemed like too much of a downer. When I saw a teaser for the movie I thought it was finally time to dig in to this memoir.

Wow.

I couldn't put it down. I was fascinated, disgusted, horrified and amazed. The Wells children are astonishing and the parents......I just can't believe people could behave this way even if it was all wildly exaggerated.

Such an interesting life, and well written. I especially appreciate the lack of victimhood, but also no minimizing of events ( )
  rosenmemily | Jan 7, 2024 |
Here's what I wrote in 2012 about this read: "Same author as previously read book. Got hooked via reading online reviews. Details her impoverished upbringing, by irresponsible yet seemingly-brilliant parents. Reminds how quickly children mature and become responsible when forced by their reality." Quotations in the comments section are my exact Kindle highlights. ( )

I didn't find this as interesting as others have. Hard for me to get invested, the only reason I pushed through was the high approvals of others who read it. Don't need it, wouldn't recommend. ( )

''The Glass Castle'' falls short of being art, but it's a very good memoir. At one point, describing her early literary tastes, Walls mentions that ''my favorite books all involved people dealing with hardships.'' And she has succeeded in doing what most writers set out to do -- to write the kind of book they themselves most want to read.
