"To his Irish-American credit, [McCourt] acknowledges his heritage as his cross as well as his prize�" (The New York Times)
"'Tis is a hard-nosed but lyrical conclusion to the story begun in Angela's Ashes." (Newsweek)
having not read the book first i dont think it would have translated quite as well without the fantastic narration by the author. The simplistic style and complete honesty is very refreshing.Being Irish there are many apsects of This book that only the irish can appreciate, The hardship, the emotional backwardness and above all the comedy.
I loved Angela's Ashes and was really looking forward to Tis. Unfortunately, I goofed and bought the abridged version in error. I definitely feel I missed out. There were sections where I asked myself how we arrived at that place until I remembered I had the "short" version. Never again!
