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.
Marcia (07/04/02)

I was glad that I decided to stay up late and watch Angela's Ashes. It is one of the best films that I have had the pleasure of watching this year. I was deeply moved by Frank's experience and couldn't wait to share my feeling with others who had either read the book or watched the film.



I didn't want the film to end. It was truly emotional, funny, as well as informative. I would recommend that if you are not a book reader, watch the film. Truly excellent. XXXXX

This book is magnificent. It takes you back to the poverty in Ireland and on a journey through the youth of Frank McCourt. It's a very poetic work and I can advice everyone to read it. I'm sure you'll enjoy Angela's ashes as much as I did. It really deserved that pulitzer prize!!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely one of the best books written in all time. Not only does it provide a marvelous story but it shows you a little bit about life. In the end you will find yourself a new person, grateful for everything you have. Angela's Ashes--- a MUST read!

This book is just brilliant. It makes you laugh, cry, smile and grimace the whole way through. Highly recommended!
