Jeannette Walls tells the story about her childhood. She talks about living like nomads, moving among Southwest desert towns, camping in the mountains. Retreating to the dismal West Virginia mining town--and the family-- her father, Rex Walls, had done everything he could to escape. He drank. He stole the grocery money and disappeared for days. As the dysfunction of the family escalated, Jeannette and her brother and sisters had to fend for themselves, supporting one another as they weathered their parents' betrayals and, finally, found the resources and will to leave home.… (més)

Very well written. Appalling at times, I had to skip ahead a little bit when I was worried that these kids wouldn't get out alive/intact. I was infuriated at the selfishness of the parents. At one point I got a backache while reading and remembered that it was the sort of backache I get when worried about money. ( )

Adult nonfiction; dysfunctional childhood memoir. ( )

“The Glass Castle” is one of the many books in the genre poor, white, dysfunctional family. Like “Educated” and “Hillbilly Elegy,” “Glass Castle” recounts situations and conditions that most of us, no matter how bad we had it growing up, can only shiver and think, “There but for the grace of God……” However, that is where the similarities between Jeannette Walls’ book and the others in the group end. Walls tells us about her family, a family who lived in conditions as squalid as anyone could imagine. But the family, dysfunctional as it was, shared love and a quirky optimism that seems almost hard to believe. Jeannette’s dad, Rex, essentially a drunk, nonetheless held a special place in Jeanette’s heart. At times during the book, the reader gets the impression that the kids, and especially Jeanette, are the parents and the parents are the children. Throughout the story we see places of touching love. For example, at one point the family was living, essentially homeless, in the desert in Arizona. Christmas came and there was no money for gifts. Rex took each of his children one by one off a little way into the desert one night and told them to choose a star. When the child did, Rex told them that was their star, a special Christmas gift they would never forget. Jeannette’s mother, Rose Mary, was an artist and school teacher. The latter profession never seemed to fit her lifestyle and philosophy. Rose’s heart was big, though. Once when the family lived in a cockroach-infested house, Jeannette complained about the bugs, Her mom told her that even cockroaches have a right to live. I listened to the audio book, read by the author. I listen to lots of books, and this was my favorite. I’m usually irritated by narrators who attempt to portray different genders of characters with ridiculous shifts in voice tone. Walls simply reads the dialogue as she remembered it being said, complete with her quaint West Virginia accent. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Jeannette Walls narrate her own book. I highly recommend “The Glass Castle” to anyone. I came upon it after listening to one of my 9th grade honors English students read a book report on the memoir. After her presentation, I told the class, “This is definitely going on my reading list.” So, I thank that student for bringing Jeannette Walls and her wonderful book to my attention. ( )

''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.
