I LOVED "The Glass Castle" so I was expecting the same. For me, it was good, not great.

I cried at the dad's funeral. (That scene was almost as heartwreching as the scene in Cider House Rules when the sick little boy is begging to be adopted.) The story does invite you to exam your own courage in a situation like the one in the story.

I know I am probably the only one who gave this book 3 stars. It has been on the best seller list forever. The story was good but got a little too detailed and was sometimes confusing for me.

OK, I do love these kinds of "think our of the box" books and Pink is one of my favorite authors. (I think every teacher and parent should consider reading "A Whole New Mind.") Drive makes total sense to me. It is all about what motivates people. So....more

I loved this! It is a book that combines the stories of serveral unrealted characters into one. I sometimes wondered if the stories could come together. Sure enough, they did-big time!

This is a wonderful story about a ultra resilient Irish gyspy boy. The journey of the main character is that of finding himself in the turmoil of a life of deception and cruel stereotyping.
