I loved this book, but I like a darker read now and then. If you don't, skip this one!
I couldn't stand the first book I read by Wally Lamb (She's Come Undone) but I decided to read this one when I needed a novel with a character who has schizophrenia for school. I loved it and found it read like East of Eden (Steinbeck). I've read it again since!
As a heavy reader of memoirs, when people ask my favorites, this one always comes up. But if you don't usually like non-fiction, not to worry! Jeannette Walls' story is unbelievable!
I'll read this book over every couple of years for the rest of my life, I'm sure. It's always thrilling!
This is one of my "re-readers," you know the books you can read over again, enjoy it, and not feel bad for wasting your time reading something you've already read!
