Publisher's Summary

Please note: this is a summary and analysis of The Glass Castle and not the original book.

Preview:

Jeannette Walls chronicles all the heartbreak, deprivation, humor, and love of her childhood in The Glass Castle, a memoir of growing up dirt-poor on a cross-country odyssey with her charismatic, but alcoholic, father and her codependent mother.

Jeannette began thinking of her childhood after spotting her mother, Rose Mary, rummaging through trash in New York City. Her parents were basically living on the street, but offers of help were always rejected. Jeannette went home to her husband's apartment on Park Avenue. She arranged to have lunch with her mom, who advised her to stop feeling guilty, accept her parents as they were, and stop hiding the truth about them.

Taking this advice, Jeannette started writing her story. Her first memory went back to a trailer park in Arizona. At the age of three, she spent six weeks in a hospital after her pink tutu caught fire while she was boiling hot dogs with no supervision....

    "Helpful and Quick Summary and Analysis"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audiobook to a friend who is fence-sitting on whether or not to buy the full audiobook of this memoir. I found the analysis helpful before I listened to the unabridged The Glass Castle. It decreased the likelihood of me getting lost or missing key things when I listened to the full book. The analysis made me more alert when listening to the audiobook and it enabled me to enjoy the book more as well as get more out of it. I highly recommend that you try Instaread summary and analysis before you listen to the book.
