The Glass Castle

I've been reading this book for over a week now - between my library books and FotR and so on. I can only say: wow. This is definitely a book to digest slowly. If you're one of those odd people who don't read, read this when you do. It's an extremely well-written biography about what appears to be an extremely stressful way to grow up. Would I have turned out so well? Would I have coped so well?

All families and all children have their difficulties to overcome, but some people have it worse than others and some people make it even worse for their children. Adventure is all very well, but regular meals are better.

I say again: read this book.
