So this has been on my TBR list for the longest time.i would bet close to 20 years? I am proud to say I finished it today. It was wonderful. His writing was divine. I literally smelled the smells, felt the hunger, witnessed the poverty and loss and found myself smiling at the shenanigans. The story of a poor Irish family growing up in the lanes of Limerick pre and post Ww2. A story of poverty and hope. Now to find his 2 follow ups❤❤❤❤❤

marleed I read a book written by his brother many moons ago, as well. It was interesting because it‘s a slightly different perspective. Malachy- I think is his brother. 2mo
BirdsandBelles Loved this book! I read it years ago and it still stays with me. 💕 2mo

Lcsmcat @MallenNC I never regret going to an author‘s event, but I have missed opportunities that I regret too. I could have heard Edward Albee when I was in school and didn‘t go. I‘ve regretted that one for many years. 4mo
MallenNC @Lcsmcat Ever since I missed Frank McCourt I try my best to go when an opportunity arises! I can‘t do everything that I‘d like, but missing that one makes me try harder to go. (edited) 4mo
Lcsmcat @MallenNC Yep. Same here. 4mo
GingerAntics Loved Angela‘s Ashes. Really looking forward to ‘Tis and Teacher Man. Still working on getting my hands on copies of those. The library only had Angela‘s Ashes. 4mo

This book is a must read!! How anyone can write in a way that can have you so deeply moved with the pain and struggles of the characters and nearly simultaneously laughing, due to all the shenanigans and accounts of “Presbyterian” hair is beyond me. I‘ve never heard hair described as pertaining to a specific religion but this along with many other little treasures in this book keep it as a classic.

Caroline2 This just moved up my tbr pile! 👍🏻 4mo

While the content of this book was certainly beyond my maturity level at age 11 when I first read it, the power of the McCourt‘s writing has stayed with me for nearly two decades. This is the actual book my older brother gave me back then, I even wrote my name inside the front cover in my 5th grade cursive! I‘m guessing he hadn‘t read the book himself...

We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun, where the hot springs flow
The hammer of the gods
W'ell drive our ships to new lands
To fight the horde, and sing and cry
Valhalla, I am coming!

Angela‘s Ashes is one of my all-time favorites! I have read & re-read it many times. I used to listen to the audiobook every day on my way to work bc I love Frank McCourt‘s accent. But I had to stop listening to it in the car bc my little boy started saying, “oh, for fuck‘s sake!” 😳

Wie schon in der Beschreibung steht, eines der schrecklichsten und zugleich schönsten Bücher. Ich habe alle seine Autobiographien gelesen und liebe sie ausnahmslos. Die Abgründe der Menschheit in Poesie.

🤣 This makes me think of my grandpa and his response if he knew I had waved at the Queen when I was in England and her car passed by while I was standing outside Buckingham palace.

I had to post this picture of the hubs ( @TheWhiteHatter ) doing some #AudioCooking ❤️ He recently found out that a majority of his DNA is Irish. He‘s always had an affinity for Irish things and he was born on St. Patrick‘s Day, so it‘s kind of perfect. Here he is listening to the tagged book, wearing his hand knitted Irish sweater, and preparing corned beef and cabbage. ☘️

4thhouseontheleft Did he take an Ancestry test? I have Irish in my blood too. 😃 And there must be something in the air, I just posted about my hubby, too. 😂 11mo

Laura317 Sounds a bit like me. I‘m a St. Patrick‘s Day baby, love all things Irish, and my Ancestry.com dna came back Irish (and Scottish). Fitting for where we live. 11mo

Ok, this book has been sitting on my shelf for ages! Vowing to read more real books and fewer e-books, as I have a gazillion... this book is amazing about the author's Irish Catholic upbringing, devastating and funny at once, no wonder it won all the awards... now if Della would let me finish...

I adore this book! The movie that was made on this novel isn‘t the best but it‘s entertaining. The book broaches some difficult subjects such as absentee parents, addiction, religion and death. I 100% recommend it!

I enjoyed this one, immensely. The no-quotation mark thing really bothered me for the first hundred pages but then I got used to it. It seemed to make the story go by faster. The writing style was a perfect match for the poverty Frankie and his family lived in. I‘ll check out the sequel ‘Tis, to see where Frank ends up in America.

Have you seen the movie adaption of Angela‘s Ashes? Is it worth checking out?

Bookishthoughts I watched the movie before I read the book, and I greatly enjoyed both of them! This is one of my favorites, it made me ugly cry in some parts.💗💗 1y
