The 5 main characters is Jeannette walls played by Brie Larson, Lori walls played by Sarah Snook, Brian walls play by Josh Caras, Rex walls played by Woody Harrelson, Rosemary walls played by Naomi Watt and finally Maureen walls played by Brigette Lundy-Paine To me I can personally say I liked the movie. The movie captures most of the scenes that are in the book but does not catch them all. The book had more eventful scenes and scenes that “wowed” me! I love the book it really brings out real life lessons about how we should appreciate what we have in life. If the movie didn 't cut out so many films it would have been a better movie.
ISBN: 978-0-7432-4754-2 Book Review: I have always loved hearing quirky stories and eccentric tales about one’s life and one’s adventures since I like imagining myself on that same page, doing the exact same things. The Glass Castle has given me that and so much more. Focusing on some of the major events in the lives of the members of the Walls family, it has shed light to many of the unconventional ways the family lives. It also focuses on redemption and forgiveness since despite all the neglect the children have felt, not once have they held any grudge on their parents. Also, it has portrayed the essence of being resilient and finding one’s self despite all the odds and diversities.
The Glass Castle, Is the Movie Worth Your Time?

The movie stars Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts as Rex and Rose Mary, Ella Anderson as young Jeanette, and Brie Larson as adult Jeannette.
People who like action and dislike long, drawn-out sequences of character development will not like this book. Most people will dislike the beginning, because it is bland, but most will like the ending, because it was perfect in how it was planned out and executed. This is my opinion on who would like the
The book's description was horror comedy; however, it did not live up to the label because it was not scary at all, and there were only a few laughs. I would say it was more of an adventure novel. There were also parts which I believe would not be suitable for young adults. You must read the book to know why, lest I'll be charged with giving spoilers. The last chapter was stretched too far or was long drawn-out that the book lost the suspense it tried to achieve.
Do you read the book and compare it to the movie, or do you watch the movie and compare it to the book? I have read and watched Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone more times than I can count. The book allows you to accomplish your creative side and use your imagination to feel the places as well as the scenes. You can develop an image in your mind of what you predict a character will look like and how they will sound. There is no dissatisfactory acting so you can imagine it the way you want, anywhere you want.
The story was just as good in the second movie. The easy to understand plot let the audience to actually know what was going on in the movie. These movies’ easy to understand and good story, kept the audience watching and rewatching the movie. They also were good enough to have sequels that had as good of a plot as the one
After their encounter, her grandmother holds Janie for a few moments. The two don’t exchange any words, but the director hints at a strong connection between the characters. In the book, after Janie is slapped, Janie’s grandmother embraces her and “stood there suffering and loving and weeping internally for the both of them”(page 9). The film leaves out important dialogue between the two characters that relates more to the true meaning of the story. In the book, after the two embrace, the grandmother tells Janie to “Sit in her lap lak used ta”( page 20 ) This shows the closeness and care that Janie’s grandmother had for Janie from the time she was born.
I am touched when I am reading this. I have watched the movie based on the novel of the same name by the John Green, and I prefer reading the book than watching the movie as I found the movie is a little boring and it didn’t touched my heart. The novel describes the feelings of the characters in more detail and make I feel emotions about life. I can’t stop flipping and reading the novel as the storyline is interesting and it has an irresistible attraction to me. If you ask me to select the film or the novel alternatively, I probably choose the novel!
If an actor does not live up to the expectations of the imaginary character in the book it does not do justice to the reader, thereby disappointing a whole lot of the movies fan following. Movies have a higher entertainment value. Movies can be seen with friends, family, colleagues, the climax and the mystery that it creates it unmatchable to any book. Lastly, even though books and movies are different, they do have some similarities. A movie and a book bring across to us the same idea.
