    My brother was the one who told me to read Frank McCourt s 1996 Pulitzer winning memoir Angela s Ashes It was one of the books that made me who am I today a voracious reader It took me 12 years before reading its 1999 sequel,Tis short for It is Reason I wanted to let the cute and innocent boy Frank and his brothers Malachy, Michael and Alphie to stay as long as p...

    Sadder in some ways than Angela s Ashes Whereas Angela s Ashes was a story of Frank McCourt fighting the odds and dangers of growing up in a Limerick slum and trying to escape, this book is about Frank McCourt fighting with himself and occasionally American society This book reveals his darker side, including his own battle...

    After reading Angela s Ashes I was glad to know author Frank McCourt had also written a sequel I felt after reading Ashes, I needed closure I wanted to know how Frank fared as a young adult when he arrived in New York as an Irish immigrant in 1949 and if the rest of the McCourt family foll...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here All a bit sad.What happens when your dreams come true and you re still not happy After the shocking story of Angelas s Ashes , any sequel was likely to suffer and unfortunately this one does too This is the often told tale of a young man arriving in the big city and the adventures that befall him.Frank McCourt arrives in New York aged 19, joins the US army and eventually becomes a teacher It s everything he wanted or dreamed about as a child in Limeric...

    First, let me say that I absolutely adored this book While not as dear to my heart as the first, I think this story is moving and the voice is, as always, unique That said, this story is a muchfamiliar one than the last Irish immigrant trying to make a life for himself in a new world, and a war enraged America This story, though, is muchtangible than other immigration stories and unique in that, throughout all the troubles, heartache, injustice, and anger, ...

    Ci sono giornate eccezionali in cui la discussione di una poesia apre la porta a una luce bianca abbagliante e tutti capiscono i versi e capiscono di aver capito e quando la luce si smorza ci sorridiamo come viaggiatori al ritorno da un avventura Con Frank McCourt accade esattamente lo stesso Seguirlo per le strade di New York come sbirciare in una stanza rimasta chiusa per decenni, lasciandovi entrare un fascio di luce.Il suo passo incerto e goffo si fa pi solido con il rincorrersi dei deCi sono giornate eccezionali in cui la discussione di una poesia apre la porta a una luce bianca abbagliante e tutti capiscono i versi e capiscono di aver capito e quando la luce si smorza ci sorridiamo come viaggiatori al ritorno da un avventura Con Frank McCourt accade esattamente lo stesso Seguirlo per le strade di New York come sbirciare in una stanza rimasta chiusa per decenni, lasciandovi entrare un fascio di luce.Il suo passo incerto e goffo si fa pi solido con il rincorrersi dei decenni, cos come la sua parlata Eppure Frank sempre Frankie C sempre la sua arguzia...

    I enjoyed this sequel to Angela s Ashes , because of Frank McCourt s ability to recollect dialogue, and his way of writing the words so well that you can just HEAR the Irish accent while you read It is so amazing and inspiring to see where Frank comes from, the slums of Ireland, with his essentially single mother to college, eventually graduate school, later a teacher in New York City It s a long road out of the slums out of his own head of fears, limitations, low self estee I enjoyed this sequel to Angela s Ashes , because of Frank McCourt s ability to recollect dialogue, and his way of writing the words so well that you can just HEAR the Irish accent while you read It is so amazing and inspiring to see where Frank comes from, the slums of Ireland, with his essentially single mother to college, eventually graduate school, later a teacher in New York City It s a long road out of the slums out of his own head of fears, limitations, low self esteem to the place where he is able to make something of himself..One thing about Frank as an author is that he tells the truth, even if it s ugly and shows his own flaws I struggled with him drinking too much repeatedly visiting the Irish pubs, especially after growing up WITHOUT his alcoholic father who couldn t prioritize his wife children ahead of hi...

    Couple of points here McCourt s story is mesmerizing From what he came from to what he become is beyond inspiring and thought provoking however, I have some qualms with McCourt Knowing what he knows about the dangers and pitfalls of alcohol, why the hell does he touch the stuff It goes on to ruin several of his relationships and opportunities and yet he never comments on this He never touches on the point of alcoholism in families and how his father s drinking did or did not directly affect Couple of points here McCourt s story is mesmerizing From what he came from to what he become is beyond inspiring and thought provoking however, I have some qualms with McCourt Knowing what he knows about the dangers and pitfalls of alcohol, why the hell does he touch the stuff It goes on to ruin several of his relationships and opportunities and yet he never comments on this He never touches on the point of alcoholism in families and how his father s drinking did or did not directly affect him Further, how the hell does his brothers open a bar once they both arrive in New York What about the devastation of drinking did these guys not get I regret that his order is off kilter and much of the time the reader has no idea McCourt s...

    Do I Detect an Irish Brogue I listened to this book as read by the Author I recommend that, as I read Angela s Ashes and enjoyed it a lot as well, but there is something special about the reading by the author that adds a diminsion to the work that you can t quite catch reading it.Up front, many are uncomfortable with this work and Angela s Ashes because of the language, which is quite blue in places I don t find it the most endearing quality myself, but as a memoir it captures the language Do I Detect an Irish Brogue I listened to this book as read by the Au...
