Though it is a memoir and a true story, both the writing style and the way Walls reminisces about her childhood make it seem like more of a fairy tale.

My favourite non-fiction books are those that don't lose the compelling flow of a good fiction book - that still pull you into another world and life, dragging you along for the ride.

I especially liked reading about Walls' complex and conflicting thoughts about her parents and childhood. When she's writing about her youth, she writes with the rose-tinted glasses of a young girl who loves her family; as she grows, she begins to see the shadows of reality creeping in - her father's alcoholism, her mother's selfish behaviour, the lack of food in the cupboards as a parental failure and not a normality.

And, through it all, she still loves her parents.

She remembers her father as an intelligent man full of fantastical stories, and her mother as a spirited artist. It's interesting, though, how differently I felt toward them.

Normally, a convincing story has me feeling the same way as the narrator, but even though I could understand Walls's love for her parents, I despised them for being selfish and neglectful. I hated them for allowing a 3 year old to use the stove and cause herself serious burns. I felt extreme anger, not love and understanding, towards them. But that's not a criticism. The Glass Castle is a beautifully-written, emotional read.

A true bildungsroman, full of dark and happy times. View all 37 comments. Nov 15, Elyse Walters rated it it was amazing. Another Update: I just saw the movie!!! I liked it! I thought they got the important 'duel' emotions just right.

On one end - the parents did not 'protect' their kids appropriately at all-- lots of crazy dangerous chaos- On the other end - there was no question the parents loved wholeheartedly their children AND there were 'some' great gifts they gave their children - so our emotions are 'mixed'.

At the end of the movie when they show Another Update: I just read some place that a movie is being made of this book. I want to share something about my relationship with "The Glass Castle" --that I've shared with a few people on this site --but never with the larger community.

I read this book in It was a gift from a friend. She mailed it to me from New York. She said The book had only been out about a week. I wasn't much of a reader. My friend knew me well --knew about my childhood --and said Paul and I were leaving for Harbin Hot Springs --a regular -'get-a-way' place for us at the time.

I took "The Glass Castle" with me. I mentioned in my other 'little' review --that I read it while sitting under a tree. The author became my hero! What I 'didn't' say was I liked it too! Then another book Then another! I'm not saying this was the best book in the entire world - but it was great ,- but I'm saying 'something' happened to me.

I have been reading book-after-book -after -book never NOT reading a book --since !!! Looking back, I'm 'thankful' the following few books were all good experiences. Had they been awful books I might not have kept reading. Having several good books under my belt, if I hit a book I didn't like later on, --I didn't worry any longer. I knew reading was enjoyable. I felt comfort in ways I couldn't explain.

I wanted to call my long time friend 'reader' friends from Jr. High School Lisi, Renee, Ron friends who were always reading --and say I wasn't reading to please anyone!!!! I'm still clear I have holes in my education. Nobody can take away something you really enjoy! I may not be the smartest cookie in the room but I'm honored to 'be-in-the-room'!!! Oh my gosh --you guys have such great 'childhood' reading memories.

I melt hearing them. If I left this site tomorrow I'd still have reading -- I'd still have friends to chat about with about books. Its real now -- -- I read! Any 3 year old who tries to cook her own hot dog on the kitchen stove alone my god -bless the little girl Jeannette was --has me melting in the palm of her hands. Thanks --its never too late to become a reader! I read this book sittng under a tree at Harbin Hot Springs one summer -- Jeannette Walls became my hero!

Jan 03, Mischenko rated it it was amazing. Jeannette Walls shares the raw and honest story of her childhood leading up to adulthood. She was raised in a highly dysfunctional family with her three siblings. She viewed work as a waste of time. Her dad was a very intelligent man who did indeed work off and on, but he was an alcoholic and at times abusive.

He had delusions of grandeur and thought he could find scads of gold to get rich and build the family a glass castle. Like build the Glass Castle. They expected their children to find ways to take care of themselves. Jeannette was often thrust into doing adult things as a child, beginning with cooking hotdogs on the stove at the young age of three, resulting in multiple serious burns on her body and leading to a hospital stay.

This is just the beginning. You can tell certain times when she gets older that she experiences anger toward both parents, but she rarely cries and is so incredibly strong and resilient. She never stops loving her parents, but her and her siblings know that eventually they have to devise a plan get away. It went too far at that point and I had a very difficult time reading those parts, but at the same time, I found myself more accepting of some of their morals.

After all, nothing good can come from hating someone in your heart. They develop a love for reading, and they also learned ways to entertain themselves. They learn responsibility and how to care for themselves because nobody else is going to do it for them.

They experience adventure and there are, without a doubt, some wonderful family times together, but some extremely scary times as well.

Just where do you draw the line? This book is written really well and I could barely put it down. Jeannette is an amazing writer and the fact that she is so caring and forgiving of her parents is heartwarming.

Her love for them is unconditional. View all 54 comments.

I can relate to many of the lessons she learned, and as such, I never had an issue believing her. These things can and do happen. The system fails children, and addicts whether they're addicted to alcohol or excitement will seek their fix above all else. As long as the addiction is in the picture, the person just doesn't exist.

Children in alcoholic families eventually become aware of this, and the soone I guess I have a somewhat different frame of reference than several of the reviewers here. Children in alcoholic families eventually become aware of this, and the sooner they "get it" the better for them.

In the book, this is nowhere more clearly evidenced than in the case of Walls' youngest sister, who spent the least amount of time in the presence of her parents dysfunction, and yet was finally the most crippled of all the children.

Of course, I admit, I have a firmly-seated belief that the strongest and most creative of personalities are forged in fire; Maureen just didn't get burned enough to see the necessity of making a different life for herself.

That, and she was separated from her other siblings by so many years that they took care of her more than they tried to include her in their effort to survive.

I loved this book. Walls' short but revealing scenes were detail and character-driven, and there were several times I caught myself chuckling at some absolute absurdity or marveling at an unexpected bit of wisdom from someone who should have been a totally unreliable source.

And I guess that's one of the main things I came away with after reading this book.

Wisdom can come from anyone And the trick to surviving is to take those things that make us better and stronger with us, and to leave the rest behind. View all 10 comments.

Who here has seen the show Shameless? I am thinking of the American version, but I know there is a British one, too, that it is based on. To me, that show could have been inspired by this memoir. Frank Gallagher and Rex Walls are the same guy! I enjoyed all the vignettes from Jeannette Walls' life. She did a great job throwing them all together to create a story even without a specific plot.

I am not sure that any of the stories lasted more than a few pages, but each one of them was interesting and important in its own way. I listened to the book and it was great because it was was read by the author.

I think that this is how all audio memoirs should be. Also, I thought it was interesting that although some of the stories made me want to reach through the speaker and shake her parents, she told the story without any positive or negative inflection.

It was like she was saying, "here is my story, you decide how you want to be affected by it. Some might be frustrated. Others might be brought to tears. But, in the end, I think there is a little something for everyone here. View all 48 comments.

Walls begins the book by explaining what has prompted her to write about her family: La "The Glass Castle" is a memoir written by gossip columnist Jeanette Walls, which details her unconventional childhood growing up with an alcoholic father and a mother who seems to be mentally ill.

Later, Walls confronts her mother, asking what she is supposed to tell people about her parents, and her mother replies, "Just tell the truth. The first third of the memoir deals with her young childhood on the west coast, as her parents live as nomads, moving frequently between desert towns, always seeking the next adventure.

Walls' mother is the key figure we meet here: In a key passage, Walls' mother takes the kids with her to give them art lessons, as she paints and studies the Joshua tree. Walls tells her mother of her plan to dig up the tree, replant it, and protect it so it can go straight. Walls' mother admonishes her, "You'd be destroying what makes it special. It's the Joshua tree's struggle that gives its beauty. The family's time in West Virginia makes up the next third of the story and depicts a depressed life in a depressed town.

It is in West Virginia where the family seems to drift apart, particularly Walls' father, who up to this point, had been worshipped and revered by his daughter.

Like Walls' mom, her dad has a lot of imagination; while he takes odd jobs that never last long, his real dream is to strike it rich with one of his inventions. He promises, once he has found his gold, that he is going to build a "glass castle" — his most special project — a great big house for the family to live in.

Once in West Virginia, Walls and her brother figure they will make the best of the situation, and they spend a month digging a hole in the ground to serve as the foundation for the glass castle.

But because the family can't pay for trash collection, their father instructs them instead to use the hole for the family's garbage. Although she has always been her father's defender, Walls grows disillusioned with her father, eventually telling him he will never build the glass castle.

Determined not to end up like her parents, Walls moves to New York, where the last third of the book transpires. It is here that Walls "makes it," graduating from college, gaining employment as a writer, marrying a rich husband, and settling into a Park Avenue apartment. Interestingly, while Walls has rejected her parents' lifestyle, it is now their turn to reject hers.

Her father refuses to visit the Park Avenue apartment, while her mother, after visiting the apartment, asks Walls, "Where are the values I raised you with? By crafting the memoir around stories of her childhood, we as readers are often troubled, not just because of the content of the stories but because the stories don't provide much in the way of reflection or introspection. It is, in fact, unclear what Walls actually does value — will she continue to identify success with the material trappings of her "normal" life in New York, or will she ultimately reject the conventional life, as her parents did?

Without more reflection from Walls, particularly in this concluding section of the book, readers are left to their own interpretation of "the truth" about her parents — are they just a drunk father and a lazy mother, or is there something more to it? The "Glass Castle" is an addicting page-turner that should captivate any reader. I chose to discount some of her parents' flaws and instead read this book as an homage to her parents.

To me, the key passage in the book is when Walls visits a classmate's home in West Virginia and sees the empty walls in the house in stark contrast to her own home, which is cluttered with paintings and books and decorations and rejects the notion that her classmate's father, passed out on the couch, bares any resemblance to her own father.

After Walls recounts the story to her family, her mother replies that she should show compassion for her classmate because not everybody has "all the advantages you kids do. Walls' family may not provide her with much in the way of tangible goods, but they give her things that are more lasting — a belief in herself, a passion for reading and writing, an appreciation for things a lot of us take for granted, and most of all love. In the end, it was not important whether her parents actually built her a glass castle.

It was that they gave her the idea of a glass castle.

By overcoming her shame for her parents and writing this memoir, Walls seems to recognize this truth about her parents — that, like the Joshua tree, there was beauty in their struggle.

The Walls children 3 of the 4, at least become inspired by their nomadic parents, wanting to be so unlike their progenitors that they actually turn their lives around. That she appreciates it and maintains a smile is the very heart of this non-fic gem. PS--Can't wait to see the movie. Probably on DVD. View all 9 comments.

What was thought-provoking for me was the idea that if you think you're a victim you are and if you don't you're not. As appalling as her mother's reaction was to her troubles, it's true. We do overprotect our children at the price of their own growth sometimes. And in this society we are on the jumpy side when it comes to misconduct, but telling someone they have been victimized isn't always best for them. It's not empowering. We've gone so much to the other extreme that it was good to reconsider a sway more toward center.

There has to be a medium where we aren't making children grow up as toddlers but also not sheltering them from making their own decisions until their adults. There are also a lot of class "poor" mentalities in the book. The way the family never planned for the future as in aimed to use any gift or income to exponentially improve their lives, but horded means until they ran out.

They tore down what they had until it ran out. They lived day to day. They took advantage when they could. The old adage that you give a man a fish he'll eat for a day but teach him to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime is moot. They were not concerned with bettering their station in life only getting all they could out of it today. I found it strange that both parents were so highly intelligent and capable and yet they chose to be homeless.

It bothered me that they thought the best existence would be to throw their burdens on society and let it care for them without realizing, or caring, that someone was paying and working for their existence. It bothered me that they didn't think of their children's welfare above their own but used them like they would any other member of society. At times I found my blood boiling at the actions of her parents. That's what dysfunction will do to you. And yet, she presents the incidents without anger or hurt.

It happened. It shaped her glasses of the world. But the past isn't a happy place to live. She took what good she could from her experience or bad to learn from and moved determinedly from a childhood she didn't enjoy into an adulthood she could pick. And that's what a memoir should do: View all 5 comments.

The family is barely able to scrape by; the father spends any money they have on alcohol, the kids barely eat, and all this time, the mother sits around, doing nothing but reading. In fact, at one point, the 12 year old narrator Jeannette tells her mother that she needs to get a job, and her mother says that it's "not fair" that she has to work.

Later, when Jeannette suggests that her mother get a job and home with a wealthy family and take care of the kids, her mother says, "I've spent my whole life taking care of people! I just want to take care of me. I know that there are people like Jeannette's parents who feed their children margarine sandwiches and tell them to go to the bathroom in a bucket that is dumped outside because there's no indoor plumbing and the "toilet" is already completely filled.

I know that these people exist, but I still can't believe it. A part of me was hoping that Walls pulled a James Frey and made a lot of this up, but another part of me realizes she probably didn't. Despite the knot in the pit of my stomach, I enjoyed the book. After all, only a book this engaging and well-written could spark such a vivid and real response. Sep 17, Juliet rated it it was ok. It's not that I hated The Glass Castle, it's just that it irritated me with its self-conscious narrative style.

Too much "look at how horrible things were! The same stories are told and re-told throughout the memoir novel , and they rely too much on symbolism for my taste. I don't know how many times The Glass Castle is mentioned, but it was clear enough the first time we're told about it. Yes, I get it. Pretty shiny vulnerable fragile fortress - drunk father whose fantasies are selfish and unstable.

Then, before we really have connected to any of the characters in their youth, we fast forward to today's NYC in which lo and behold, the storyteller is a successful writer. Basically, this book is a pale imitation of The Liar's Club. Karr's book is a jump off a cliff into a bravely realized memoir with enormous depth in the details, not to mention the writer's conflicted feelings about the meaning of father, of mother, of family, of self.

By being so specific about her life and her family's life, Karr touches us deeply about family and self, too. Walls had an interesting life, but the story reads like someone else's family's trip.

However, I am reminded of how a friend once explained Narcissism to me. These were things someone who lived the experience would have known. She certainly claims to have a vivid memory of a lot of things that happened when she was three years old, too!

Severe scalding, scorpion bites, being thrown from a moving car, locked in the back of a truck for fourteen hours, incipient starvation, drowning, and mauling by a cheetah, not to mention numerous punctures, falls, fights, and a questionable diet - these were routine events before she turned eight years old.

Medical care was for sissies according to dad. Their poverty, instability, inability to create social relationships, they claimed, were a blessing. And boy was there a lot of that. An education in itself really.

She writes with wit and humour about a deplorable life with incompetent and psychotic parents. I find this distressing. The issue is not one of an acceptably eccentric alternative life style, or of an odd upbringing being overcome, or of children loving their parents in tough circumstances. The poignancy of her portrayal of the caring dad after he almost killed her yet again, with no apparent irony much less sarcasm, is typical: And it may provide a way for her to deal with the effects of her childhood.

Book Review: The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls Jeannette Walls proves in her astounding memoir that bad parenting and abject poverty do not necessarily condemn children to a dismal future of the same.

In "The Glass Castle" published in by Scribner, Walls reveals the intimate details of her upbringing within a dysfunctional yet loving family. Her mother is homeless — one of those bag ladies that all of us see — but now you suddenly have to wonder what it would feel like if that was your mother dangling at the fringe of our society.

From this shocking moment, Walls transports you back to her earliest memory.

The Glass Castle

She is three years old and suffers a terrible burn to her torso when her dress catches on fire as she is boiling hotdogs on the stove. A long stay at the local hospital near where her family is currently living in Arizona ensues while Walls recovers.

To the hospital staff, the negligence of the parents is obvious, but Jeannette does not associate the murmuring disapproval around her with her parents.

If any action on the part of social services is planned, we never find out because her father, Rex Walls, plans an early check out from the hospital in his trademark "Rex Walls' style.

Jeannette is whisked away with her father, mother, older sister and younger brother and the family hits the road. It begins just one of many journeys in which the Walls family ends up in ramshackle trailers and shacks throughout the deserts of Nevada, Arizona, and California. They stay someplace a while until Rex can't pay the rent or won't and they skip town and do it all over again.

Rex inspired the title of the book with the plans, lovingly worked out on paper, for his "glass castle" that he aspires to build some day. Oh, I hate adjectives. But, later, I realized they probably both got something that I never understood out of their relationship. I think a lot of this book is about how we know the people we are close to and, also, never really do — how it is useless to hold other people to our own standards of what love or responsibility looks like.

But, still, it is about holding each other responsible. Or, maybe the book is just about her family with no real moral lesson at all. Walls is so loyal to her stories in an almost scientific way.

She waved enthusiastically when she saw me. I kissed her cheek. Mom had dumped all the plastic packets of soy sauce and duck sauce and hot-and-spicy mustard from the table into her purse.
