Forget about Dil Chahta Hai- This book is the granddaddy of all coming-of-age tales. Never have I come across a book so independent of self-pity. The scene is set - an Irish boy Malachy, living in the slums of Limerick, Ireland. This is an autobiography of Frank McCourt, and as far as I am...Read More

This Book Changed My Life

Mar 03, 2005 08:21 PM Read

As much as I try to avoid using cliques, I decided to use that title anyway since this book really did change my life. I was given Angela's Ashes as a Christmas present about 5 years ago, and then put it away and forgot about it for the following 2 years. Then one day I pulled it down off the sh...Read More

 
Books have been a source of knowledge for many centuries. There is atleast one book written on every single topic under the sun. Books are not only written to educate, they are written for leisure and even for the metamorphosis of the soul.There are a hundred categories to choose from when it comes to books.

Feb 12, 2004 08:41 PM Read

I read Angela's Ashes without any pre-conceived notions about its author or its contents. The book was gifted to me a few years back by Luke Fennell, then my boss, who picked it up on a trip to US. I read the book within a couple of days, and have since then lent my copy to many of my friends an...Read More

This book is one of my all time favorite reads. A captivating story, told with realism and frankness that makes the reader know that the story is real, and draws them in to the feelings and tribulations of the McCourt family.

This is another film and book I have seen/read both. This is about poverty in Ireland and how a family cope through the eyes of a young boy, Frank McCourt. It tells of the pain and hardship suffered and the indignity of seeing his mother beg for food. Although this makes it sound somber, t...Read More

I came to read it by way of hearing so much about it. Once I got the book from the library, I couldn't put it down. It's a story that is so honest, it's hilarious and heartwrenching at the same time. Through the whole of it, I wanted to go out there and grab somebody. I wanted to barge int...Read More

I read a number of reviews and was cautious to choose those that did not reveal a whole lot about the plot. I wa...Read More

THE LIMITATIONS IMPOSED BY CLASS

Because of social snobbery, Frank is unfairly denied many opportunities. Although he is an intelligent, quick-witted, and eager student, he is prevented from becoming an altar boy and deprived of chances to further his education, because when people see him dressed in rags, they shun him. Frank’...Read More
