Read from August 23 to September 28, 2014
I have to stay true to my rating system and say that a majority of readers would find this book interesting, but it’s not for all and it’s not a must-read-before-you-die thing. It was close, though; near the end, it slowed down for me. I strongly insist you read The Glass Castle if you’d like to add a lifetime on top your current lifespan via taking in the story of this author.
You’ll live through the eyes of Jeannette Walls as her family moves from place to place around the United States. They live off the bare necessities, the same way society labels as homelessness or runaways. Her parents hated establishments that tell her she has to live a certain way to survive or be happy. It’s an eye-opener, oh yes. It might not be a pleasant eye-opener, which is why I say this book is not for everyone. But if you want to learn about traveling, hippies or poverty, I’d pick this one up.
I gave The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls a 4/5. See rating system below.
My rating system stands: 5/5 is a knock out of the park; this book deserves to be read by everyone. 4/5 is, “I really liked it,” but it did have a couple of kinks. 3/5 is, “I believe there are a lot of people who would enjoy this book, but for one reason or another, it didn’t sit well with me.” 2/5 is, “I really didn’t enjoy it and I’m not going to recommend it.” 1/5 is, “no one read this – throw it in a lake.”
