I loved this memoir. Jeannette Walls has such an interesting family and even though their lives were completely ridiculous compared to what I'm used to I could also relate to them. I wanted a little more about Jeannette and Brian as they grew up though. Brian was a prominent person to me and I missed him in the end. Maureen surprised me as she got older because I didn't really feel her presence in the rest of the book but that's because she actually wasn't there. I often forgot about her though. Jeannette's parents sometimes annoyed me but it just shows that real life people are irritating which some fiction novels don't really get at. I don't read too many memoirs but they are my favorite form of nonfiction and I loved Jeannette's writing about her life.
