This book definately shows how much poverty there was in Ireland and makes you feel greatful for what you have. You get to see how one person could survive such a terrible life.

This book is purely incredible. I had to read it for a school assignment, and at first I was dreading reading it, but once I started I really couldn't put it down. It is highly entertaining and very funny, while at the same time it is very moving. It gave me a new perspective on life; I now realize how truly hard some people's lives are and I appreciate my life much more. I would, without a doubt, recommend this book to anyone, whether you love literature or you don't really like to read -- you'll love it either way! This book is amazing!

The book Angela's Ashes was fantastic. It gave you a real feeling on how things were like, growing up in Ireland and going through such a tough childhood. It was hard to put it down, and many a night I stayed up late reading it.
