The Glass Castle

Little Hobart Street

The book describes their dilapidated house on Little Hobart Street with its "swollen" leaking ceilings, an enormous rat that steals their sugar, and the icicles and dishes frozen to the sink in their unheated house. What type of figurative lanuage is used in this section? What impression does the reader have of the house?

There is much personification detailing how sick and neglected the house is.
