heart rending story which I could not put down, my mind shall contemplate Frank McCourt's chronicles for a long time


I loved this book!

by browneyedgirl on Apr 10, 2010

I had to read a section of Angela's Ashes for my english class last year. The part that we discussed was the scene in the typhoid ward. Shortly after reading it, I went out and bought the book. It is one of my favorite autobiographies. It was unique to see the hardships of McCourt's impoerished Irish family as he saw them as a child. I would highly recommend this book to everyone.


McCourts First

by Ohrenberg on Oct 30, 2007

In Frank McCourts first novel he is able to weave an intricate story that will break your heart. The Tears are broken up by moments of levity that will have you laughing out loud. The true story of author Frank McCourts life of poverty in the irish city of Limerick is one you will not forget.


Touching and funny...

by DWHandy on May 3, 2007

A heart tugging book that still manages to bring many smiles. The story of a poor boy growing up in America and Ireland. Frank is the oldest son of Irish parents. His father is an unemployed alcoholic and his mother is just desperate. The story is warm and the humor is genuine. The book won a Pulitzer and for good reason. I am reading the second book of the three he has written in this series.
