Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

The Glass Castle

Posted on: March 2, 2008

Didn’t get most of what I planned to done this week (surprise) but I did squeeze in one more quick book, The Glass Castle: A Memoir, which is our March book club book. I was reluctant to read it since some of the other people in the book club we’re already planning on skipping this one but I actually really enjoyed it and zipped through it. It is about one seriously crazy family (which I guess made me feel a bit better about my own parenting skills). We had a good discussion last Wednesday about Distant Land of My Father (and then I went and heard the author speak Thursday night at the library) and it will be interesting (as it always is) to see what the group makes of this one.

I actually took The Glass Castle out of our library in Basel a couple of months ago and LOVED it! I have never thought of myself as a “reader” so I am glad that I have actually read a book that is being covered in your book club!! The one thing that struck me about that book is that it was about a real person who actually lived like that. Great read!!
