    'Tis A Memoir [E–pub New] Couple of points hereMcCourt's story is mesmerizing From what he came from to what he become is beyond inspiring and thought provoking; however I have some ualms with McCourt Knowing what he knows about the dangers and pitfalls of alcohol why the hell does he touch the stuff?

    'Tis A Memoir [E–pub New] This is an amazing and a motivational book that has inspired me these past few months being a junior What makes this book inspirtational is how at every event in McCourt's life he finds the positive sides or tries to find something humorous within the event This has taught me that no matter what life throws me at I can achieve nothing is a major deal I was really able to connect to McCourt in this book than the first Angela's Ashes because

Sadder in some ways than Angela s Ashes Whereas Angela s Ashes was a story of Frank McCourt fighting the odds and dangers of growing up in a Limerick slum and trying to escape this book is about Frank McCourt fighting with himself and occasionally American society This book reveals his darker side including his own battles with the drink though these are never as bad as his father s alcohol problems his insecurities and the chip on his shoulder about growing up in a slum Frank had a tough life even in America and while the book is occasionally humorous it is sad to see the way drinking contributes to a lot of his problems and the growing gulf between him and his mother McCourt s sparse writing style while refreshing only makes these problems seem worse In Angela s Ashes McCourt left Ireland in triumph as a victim turned hero while in Tis he is half victim half villain

I enjoyed this seuel to Angela s Ashes because of Frank McCourt s ability to recollect dialogue and his way of writing the words so well that you can just HEAR the Irish accent while you read It is so amazing and inspiring to see where Frank comes from the slums of Ireland with his essentially single mother to college eventually graduate school later a teacher in New York City It s a long road out of the slums out of his own head of fears limitations low self esteem to the place where he is able to make something of himselfOne thing about Frank as an author is that he tells the truth even if it s ugly and shows his own flaws I struggled with him drinking too much repeatedly visiting the Irish pubs especially after growing up WITHOUT his alcoholic father who couldn t prioritize his wife children ahead of his addiction for drink abandoned them all to poverty a life of misery It was hard to read about Frank stopping for a beer after school then one beer turns into a nine hour binge and then oh well what s one when the wife is already going to be pissed so what s the use I couldn t help but think Frank was possibly self sabotaging his life relationships While I appreciate honesty I ll offer my own I am disappointed with Frank for this drinking if it weren t for that I would have easily given the book 4 stars What I love about Mr McCourt is that he never fails to make me laugh out loud even in the midst of the grimmest material He is funny I laughed a lotI also have a great respect for the language cultural and financial struggles that immigrants have when they first come to this country
