I really loved this book, it was great to read and I loved that it was written by a true Irish man. The book was very good at describing Ireland back in the 30's and 40's which were hard times. The book showed deep emotion and I could not help but get gripped from the first page. Frank McCourt was accurate in his description of how things used to be and as sad as it is to admit he was nothing but realistic. I cried when Frank's sister died and then the twins it was just so tragic for the family. I hated Franks father but that was the truth even now.
As for recommending this book I say if you read it you will not be sorry.
