Classic, True Story

Angela’s Ashes–Frank McCourt

Whomp whomp.

What a downer of a book.

Hahahaha, before you get all in my face about it and the obviousness of that statement, let me just say, I DID enjoy reading this book. The writing was fantastic, the retelling of his life was done very well especially since most of the stories were from his childhood and it was just a beautiful book.

I’m not sure that I can say that I enjoyed it, actually, because that seems a little crass since his life was so sad. But it was well worth the wait (of about a hundred years on my book shelf) and I think I appreciate my life a lot more.

Just be prepared to be depressed because it was a terrible time in history and this family barely survived. (Most of them didn’t.)
