A very special gift: the audiobooks of both Angela's Ashes and 'Tis, superbly and attractively republished for this special gift edition.

I cried, and I cried and I cried. Very moving book indeed. ( )

Frank McCourt’s honest memoir of his childhood tells a tale of doing without, of struggle, of failure, but also of charity, and humor. The language changes as Frank gets older, the stories have an atmosphere you can relate to, even if foreign and sometimes a bit shocking, with language back in the nineteen thirties. I didn’t end were I thought it would, perhaps that IS a better ending than the one the title signified for me. ( )

I remember loving this book but it's been so long since I read it, I'd have to re-read before I could honestly give it 4 or 5 stars, where's the 'to re-revisit' list?!
