This is my BILLIONTH time reading Angela’s Ashes, a memoir by Frank McCourt. Be prepared for a fresh, boyish perspective, with hopes and dreams. It tells the story of young Frank in Brooklyn and the slums of Limerick, Ireland in the 1930s, dealing with extreme poverty. From his alcoholic father and his desperate mother to his illness (No spoilers!), Frank, being the eldest brother, tries his best to support his family. The main idea I pulled from this story was the pure hope from Frank, and his determination to save his family. The hours he worked from factories to selling newspapers, to caring for his mother and brothers. This book honestly gives you a slap about the real world. How so many are suffering from alcohol and abuse, and the effects it has on families. I give this PHENOMENAL book 4.5 stars and recommend it to all. Happy reading! Please leave comments below.
