What a treat!!

by JWILKINS on Jun 3, 2010

Frank McCourt, who passed away recently, is by far, one of my favorite authors. What makes Tis: A Memoir a special treat is that HE narrates the audiobook himself!! And, with his Irish brogue and unique writing style, puts you, the reader/listener, in the scene/picture. Sadly, he only wrote a few books, which I have had the pleasure of reading, and wish he had written more. Take the time to treat yourself to a read/listen to this rare gem of an author!!

Very interesting and entertaining. I personally liked it better than his fames "Angelas Ashes"


Frank McCourt strikes again!

?'Tis? documents the continuing story of Frank McCourt as he re-establishes himself in America. Frank?s is an honest, unwavering voice narrating his experiences as an Irish immigrant in the 1950?s. He works as a hotel janitor, joins the army, becomes a university student. It is in this setting that he finds his voice as a writer and teacher. McCourt?s marriage and role in fatherhood are not explored in as great a detail as other areas of his life and this is a disappointment. While not as completely charming as the Pulitzer Prize winning "Angela's Ashes" or the more recent "Teacher Man," ??Tis? is an enjoyable read (at turns laugh out loud and heart-wrenching), a glimpse of a young man struggling against the ghosts of the past while finding his place in the world.
