Angela's Ashes


I'm almost finished reading Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt. Once I got past all the cursing and swearing in this book, I have to say I'm really enjoying it. It's witty and funny and sad and heartwarming. It's given me a better understanding of the poor...the really poor, the one piece of bread a day poor.

Well I just finished the book and have to say the last few chapters were disappointing with a little to much information about his young sex life and his resorting to steal to get enough money to get to America.

I wonder if he ever came back to Ireland to pay back all those he stole from? :(
