Angela's Ashes

By Frank McCourt


This is the saddest book I have ever read in my life, but I will always remember it. This is now my favorite book. It is told through the point of view of a little boy named Frankie and he is telling you about his childhood in Ireland. This kid goes through so much and he has sort of like a childlike wisdom. He questions so much about his life and you really just wonder how so many horrible things can happen to one little boy.


I liked this book it was enlightening. Everybody thinks their life is the worst and it can't get any better and this book proves everyone wrong. But Frankie doesn't think that his life really sucks because he is thankful for what he has like most people should be. This book is a must read it is really sad but it gives you a completely different view of the world.


Favorite Passage

“The master says it’s a glorious thing to die for the Faith and Dad says it’s a glorious thing to die for Ireland and I wonder if there’s anyone in the world who would like us to live.”
