I read this one after being so moved by his first book, Angela's Ashes. I was disappointed in this one. It's nice to know how things turned out for Mr. McCourt, though.

I liked this better than Angela's Ashes. The same characters figure in, but the story is even more compelling.

Frank McCourt taught English at my high school in NYC while I was a student there - kind, kind soul. So I'm biased - this is great reading. (People keep gifting me copies of his books, knowing the conenction, so I have this one to pass along.)

After Angela Ashes I was really excited to continue with his memiors. However, I was disappointed with this one. It seemed to go on and on and he took a bunch of stories of his life and threw them together to create a book.

Husband and I both delighted in this book. A new Teacher struggles against teens and wins - it's heroic to say the least. We know that schools in a tough part of town can yield tough situations for a new teacher, as the kids try you to the last inch. But, this teacher won in a very different way than most --------in my book he is a Hero!
