Gritty, bluesy book, written as autobiography. If it's all true, what a life! What a family! It was hard to put down, so I read it in one sitting. Then, it was hard to get out of the mindset. Now, I'm about to read the prequel: "Half Broke Horses". Jeannette Walls has me hooked.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. Sad to think this was someones real life. I would definitely recommend it.

I have bought so many copies of this book. Everytime I lend it out it seems to go astray :)

I have always enjoyed memoirs and have read several that were quite memorable, but "The Glass Castle" tops them all. I started the book in the afternoon and had it finished within a few hours because I simply could not put it down for any length of time. Besides having led an extraordinary life, Jeannette Walls has an impeccable way with words. She evoked frustration, shock, joy, and anger in me through recounting the often bizarre circumstances of her past, but she never evokes or encourages pity at any time throughout the book. I felt satisfied when I came to the end of "The Glass Castle", which doesn't happen very often and is a real treat. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read, regardless of whether or not you enjoy memoirs.
