The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Walls
 
Interesting, Inspiring, Dramatic
I loved this book

This book grabbed me in the first chapter. I could not put it down. The family is so dysfunctional and yet the Children turned out if not OK, above average. Their were parts of their childhood I loved (their father giving them there own stars as a Christmas present, who would think of that) but they truly did not have the basics, food and shelter. This is a book you either love or hate, our book club was half and half.

I really liked this book, it was much better than I anticipated...It made me want to read a biography on Laura Bush. I found it hard to put down, and when I finished it wanted more

Even Silence has an end

I found it hard to put this book down. It was truly scary and to think that it is a true story. I wanted to read the other prisoner's accounts because they did not all agree with Ingrids'. I think it could have been about 100 pages shorter, but I did enjoy it and think it is worth reading.

freedom by Jonathan Franzen

Freedom

It actually had the foundation for being an interesting book. Even though I didn't like the characters I thought it could have been a good read. It was way too long and very repetitive. It had an interest factor as far as dysfunctional families go but not highly believable

The Sentimentalists by Johanna Skibsrud
 
Slow, Confusing, Boring
the sentimentalist

I found this book a hard read. Very boring...it was very hard to keep my interest up. the only saving grace was the ending.

Nineteen Minutes

I couldn't put this book down. In this day and age bullying is a very serious problem. This led to a very good discussion at our meeting. Our book club rated it overall an 8 out of 10. I personally didn't like the ending!!
