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.
