The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

Life is hard, but in today’s life most people don’t even know the true meaning of the hard life, after breaking or losing their modern gadgets. The world is probably close to being over. I’m not saying that my life was also tough. I’m also not saying that my life was perfect, but I can thankfully say that my family never struggled financially in my entire life. Although, I was raised by people who’ve been through the hard life, and being wasteful during breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even snack time was never an option.
The Glass Castle is named after Rex Walls’ dream to build his very own glass castle for his family with his impressive architectural skills. The dream was planned. Even blue prints were good and ready to go, but through the years as life went on with no progress. The plan of building the dream house was slowly dying. It was getting too late for the Walls children when Rex used up most of his family’s hard earned money on his addictions. Even his most favored daughter, Jeannette lost hope on all their hopes and dreams.
The Glass Castle is well written, and every time you would turn the page you would love to read even more than you already had. While reading this book I could barely put the book down because the book was so interesting. This book is nothing like anything I’ve ever read before. “Everyone who is interesting has a past.”—John Taylor
The Glass Castle was written from Jeannette Walls’ point of view. It feels as if you were actually with her in every single moment living the tough life with Rex Walls, and every single detail would make a mark in your head. No wonder her life was so interesting, because you could just never sit back and relax.
The book is so amazing that it was voted #1 BookSense Reading Group Pick not only one but three years on the New York Times bestseller list. I mean how could it not? It’s an original. Dramatic shows would seem similar to The Glass Castle, but they probably got the idea from the book.

Walls’ writing makes you think that it’s not always about true love, and happy endings like in the usual fairytales. Sometimes you would also have to add a little spice in your life to make it a little bit fun. Besides salt is nothing without pepper.
