    Why we think it’s a great listen: There’s no gentle way to put this – Frank McCourt’s performance of Angela’s Ashes is just better than the Pulitzer Prize-winning book. Frank McCourt shares his sometimes heartwarming, sometimes heartbreaking story of growing up poor, Irish, and Catholic in the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir Angela's Ashes.

    Karen says: "A classic book *and* a classic audiobook"

    Overall

    This is an entertaining listen, made better by Frank himself who is a decent narrator. Many of the stories will resonate with his countrymen (but not if you are a Limerickman it seems), eg the sarcasm of teachers, officials, and adults, not to mention the usual clip round the ear from all of the above. My only complaint, Frank, would be that you repeat a bit too much on the drunken fathers songs & the spent pay cheque, which become pretty predictable. Still my first audiobook, and no absolutely no regrets, very enjoyable. Nice one.
