una historia de la vida real que nos sirve de inspiracion, para valorar el esfuerzo de una madre en la crianza de sus hijos.
claro que frank, pero también angela, frank es muy observador y desea ayudar a su famillia.
prefiero realizar una evaluacion leyendo yo mismo y no a traves del relato en audio, ya que se vuelve tedioso cuando el narrador repite
En parte si, pero considero demasiado larga la narracion, y se vuelve tediosa para escucharla, para que la persona que escucha una historia, y debe hacer un analisis de ella, considero que debe ser menor el tiempo.
me llama la atención que las personas de la historia le dan importancia a la religion, a la mutua ayuda entre ellos para solucionar sus problemas
I bawled and I laughed. What more can I say except if there is a story more poingnat, please let the world know.
poverty, poverty, poverty
When Frank was so hungary that started licking every section of the newspaper to absorb the grease of the chips and fish that his uncle finished.
Another incredible moment in the book was when he got to the old woman't house and found her dead on her chair...I thought to myself:
Absolutely incredible book!
I didn't enjoy this book and felt like it was very repetive. No real progession or direction just the same chapter over and over again. This book is sad and depressing with no hope at all. I was glad when I reached the end of the book.
currently listening to Dan Brown Deception Point
Listening to books with original dialects adds tremdously to the bring the book alive

The reality of life in 1930's/40's Ireland
An Irish accent to read and Irish book - brilliant
The book was so beautifully written and narrated that I could visualize the scenery and feel the pain of the characters. However, at times, I felt like I couldn't bear to hear another hardship of the McCourt family. Despite the bleak situation, McCourt managed to install a clever humorous perspective throughout the story that demonstrated the resilience and optimism of children. The historical perspective was interesting as I knew little about the lifestyle in Ireland at that time. I highly recommend this audiobook.

While I thoroughly enjoyed the narration (I love hearing an authentic Irish accent), this story was so depressing and seemingly pointless, I'd have to say that I won't listen to another book by Frank McCourt. I kept waiting to hear some scrap of good news, or hear of some revenge (particularly against Frank's father), or glean some bit of goodness, but it just didn't materialize. For me, great writing and narration could not overcome the bleakness and hopelessness of the lives of the characters.
No. I put this book into the same genre as Bryce Courtney, but I'll continue to listen to Courtney's books.
Uncle Pat Keating - he doesn't give a Fiddler's fart about what people think.
I think a follow up book would be great - if it introduced something besides human suffering, pain and despair. Clearly Frank McCourt must have finally succeeded at something - maybe this is what the follow on book could describe.
I loved hearing Frank McCourt reading it.
Frank McCourt and how he dealt with his life.
He is a great reader.
Great writing for a great story.

It was written as if he was really the young boy that he was. I would find it hard to know what my feelings really were as a youngster. It took a short time for me to get used to his accent but afterwords really enjoyed how he talked. Frank reading his own book made it so much more enjoyable.
I liked Frank. His thoughts were so
I wished that Frank's father would not have had a drinking problem. He had some good solid advise for his boys and I kept hoping he would come around and take care of his family.
When I finished the book I wondered why it was called
