This is simply one of the best books I've listened to. Frank McCourt is a fantastic storyteller. I laughed at his descriptions of first love, I teared up over the tremendous losses in his life, and I felt the pangs of hunger while he described his extremely poor childhood in Ireland. My hope is to become even half the writer McCourt is. His stories seem to come alive.

This is the second time that I have "read" this book. I really liked it, which is probably why I have read it twice. It is funny, heart rending and uplifting all at once. Although the author tends to whine a bit at times, this is a wonderful book.
