  • Angela s Ashes was a roller coaster read for me I loved the writing style and POV and touch of Irish humor, while appalled by the poverty that Frank McCourt described in his childhood It was puzzling that he could remember such detail beginning at the age of four when his parents moved the family from New York back to Limerick, Ireland The matter of fact honesty and introspection in his account, I m certain, led to his Pulitzer Prize Tis is the sequel I couldn t put down, as it details his life [...]


  • My father came from Ireland and although I aware of the poverty he endured, not a lot was said about it This book really brings it to life, how people even survived is hard to imagine Somewhat sad in parts and funny in others Just started Tis.


  • this book is mainly about frank and how he struggles in life a a poor person and later becomes greater of himself then beginning is where his family goes to Ireland and need to get to America he works hard to get to where he wants to get and in the end he reaches where he always wanted to get to.Theme I have found in Angela s Ashes is the limit of what different classes of work can get and afford and how hard they have to work to get to what they really want I saw this in the book while frank hi [...]


  • There are a few books in my life which I have read, reread, and never truly forget Angels Ashes is one such book.Initially, the fact that Frank McCourt was raised in Ireland piqued my interest My mother s ancestors came to the US from Ireland, so I saw a common thread However, I had a fairytale like idea of what all of Ireland must be like glorious green countryside, castles and the Blaney Stone However, I quickly learned from McCourt s moving memoir that this romantic notion was far from the tr [...]


  • Tis is essentially the story of an immigrant and his new life in New York City Beginning with his voyage to America, the autobiographical story follows his struggle to make it in a country that isn t always accepting of strangers Don t be mistaken to think of this as an extension of the dark tone of Angela s Ashes which I also liked I found this book much lighter in tone and optimistic McCourt finds his way to the promised land and has to deal with the realities of American society It s full of [...]


  • I ve read both these books, as well as Teacher Man , and gone on to purchase them in hardback for my library What wonderful, wonderful reads No, Angela s Ashes is NOT about the Holocaust Many people seem to think that It s about a boy s experience growing up in extreme poverty in Ireland Filled with pathos, yes, but also that wonderful Irish humor that they manage to find in the direst of situations A wonderful, poignant, rollicking read


  • You love it and hate it and are disturbed, yet reassured that McCourt is very real By the time you are finished with the books, you feel like you know him and I felt like I knew a little bit about my own history in a weird way since part of my family ping ponged similarly between Ireland and the US.


  • I kept reading and waiting for this book to get better happier but it just got worse and worse However, it is one of my absolute favorites It opened my eyes to the life of a boy growing up in extreme poverty and gave me an understanding I did not have before of how that shapes ones life I have a first edition signed copy met Frank McCourt in Denver that I treasure.


  • Only four stars because I am lumping these two together I loved Angela s Ashes even though it could be mighty depressing at times Although, being of Irish descent myself, I didn t find it as depressing as my non Irish friends did We can be a maudlin bunch, us Irish I also liked Tis, but not as much as Angela s Ashes.


  • Boy what suffering our ancestors endured This book is very interesting and really you want to keep reading through it to learn what happens next It is not a thriller but real life situations in very hard times.


  • I didn t read this bookBrent did and accidentally posted it to my account fact, all of the books that are rated were rated by Brent I promise I ll get on and rate some books at some point I m reading booksjust haven t gone on to rate them yet


  • This is a very compelling book about the struggles of an Irish family I am making an attempt to trace some of the Irish s history of moving to America Boy, was i in for a surprise reading this masterpiece by Frank McCourt.


  • This book was a great book I liked the in depth look of the famine in Ireland and the daily struggles his family endured from a child s point of view I sacrificed studying time for this book, I couldn t put it down.


  • I was ready for this book to be a total cliche, but actually it s very amusing, unmistakably Irish, and really good at conveying the issues of a country we tend to over simplifyTE I have not read Tis, but the boxed set is the only option.







  • I love the author s way of describing his life in Ireland His story is from eyes of a boy growning up in a harsh world I felt that I knew my was around he lil village as well as he did.


  • From the moment I opened the book I stepped into Ireland I felt every emotion the the Author felt I would read anything he wrote




  • I read Angela s Ashes in college and I picked up Tis on my own Both are great books I have been wanting to re read these as well.




  • This book was so sad I felt depressed at the end I then read the sequel Tis, and felt much better The story is true and the book was well written.



  • I would have given him a five HE S REALLY GOOD except he s a dick in person So, here s a four Eat that with some cabbage Mr Acting All Big Guy.
