The draw of this book has everything to do with the writer's incredible talent for colorful and moving story telling, and a writing style that comes alive with McCourt's uncomplicated and free flowing Irish accented narration. Frank McCourt's amazing life story is a not just a must-read, but a Classic.
The reader did the story in for me.
A good reader he is perhaps, but he seemed to sweep through sentences in such a way that blended them together, watering them down so that they went in one ear and out the next.
I felt the story was one I couldn't get into, though have attempted reading it several times. The reader emphasizes things too much at times, so that I felt the story was over-dramatic. The story has plenty of drama as it is, without the reader putting an exclamation point on every single sentence. I would like to hear someone that would read it in a more natural tone; maybe William Hurt would be good.
