This book is a mind-blower, and read by the author himself, in his mild and laconic way, it just pushes home the conditions they lived in and accepted. Awesome.

So enjoyable as read by the author. Not nearly as depressing as the movie or the book. I highly recommend the audio version

The story is told by the author, Frank McCourt, in his own, thick accent which pulls you into the story. I have kids and it was very difficult to listen to the family's hardships - especially the first tape. It was heart wrenching. But I still listened and it was compelling. Its a tale of Frank's childhood. His relationship with his father was complex - he reviled him but loved him. His mother did whatever it took to take care of her children. Frank gives a vivid picture of what poverty was like in that time. Despite it being difficult to listen to, I still highly recommend listening to it.
