The Glass Castle. Another true story, of the author's grandmother. So in this case, she took artistic liberty in creating dialogue and story details. I started out enjoying the story. I checked the Book on CD out from the library for a cousin to listen too because I thought he'd enjoy the horse stories. But I think I am getting to be too insensitive,and I want to be sensitive. I think that if someone speaks ill of my religion, I think I want to stop reading the book. I'm fine defending my beliefs to someone I meet on the street, but I don't need to put up with senseless insult in a story.
I'm not sure what is happening to me, but I'm becoming a little closed off. Maybe it is because I'm see so much that I disagree with in the world, that I feel a need to cuddle up with a blanket of niceness, of positiveness.
Please know, this book isn't bad. There is a lot I enjoyed about the book. I definitely recommend the book over the book on CD. I ended up needing to return the book before my vacation, and so I downloaded the end of the story to my iPOD. The author is the narrator, and her voice isn't my favorite.
An interesting story about life in the "old days".
