The story Jeannette Walls tells is of her own childhood and family. Although it is a collection of experiences from her life, it is so far from my own it read as fiction. While reading I escaped my own worries as I entered a different world. In a way this provided prospective and comfort. In another light it was encouraging. Regardless of the situation; poverty, hunger or alcoholism it consistently had a underlying positive tone. Each character was complex and well developed enabling me to easily relate to each of them in one way or another. Well written the book swept me up and made for a smooth read and a smooth flight.
