Amazon Editorial Review

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..

What crazy-making neglectful parents, and yet there were also positives to their parenting. I found this hard to read at times because I felt so angry with Jeannette’s parents. Definitely worth reading though.

Great read. It was hard to believe how neglectful the parents were and yet the children managed to grow up well and remained loyal and loving to the parents. It was amazing how the children supported and took care of one another. There were some good in the parenting style, which made one wonder "if only they had been less irresponsible".
