The Glass Castle - Audiobook Review

The Glass Castle, by Jeannette Walls, read by Julie Gibson. Unabridged (11 hrs 15 min) Recorded Books, 2005. Reviewed in Age 30+...A Lifetime of Books. Read Review.

The author's father was a charismatic but alcoholic man who greatly preferred poker to gainful employment and wasn't above stealing the family grocery money to purchase liquor. His wife could barely be bothered to raise her children. So Walls and her siblings had to fend for themselves, providing their own food, shelter, and clothing, even if it meant picking through dumpsters.
