Angela's Ashes

Angela's Ashes
by Frank McCourt

LOVED IT!!! Angela's Ashes, a memoir, by Frank McCourt was awesome. It's rare to find a story that brings tears to your eyes and shakes your body with laughter in the same instant. I listened to this one on Audio Book and can't imagine it any other way. McCourt's Irish accent and voices for each character brought life to his story. After each journey I made into McCourt's Ireland I found myself overwhelmed with gratitude. I will never forget these people - it's like they are my family too. There are some sections that I would recommend skipping - a few of Frank's teen memories- but overall this story is expertly told and one I will always remember.

I read this one, too and I also could've done without some of the "experiences" he talks about, but overall a really good book! I think I read somewhere about another book that tells of what happens once he got to America?
