    "Poverty isn't a joke. Those with rarely encounter or think about those without. Angela's Ashes will have you question poverty. It tells the story of poverty at unseen levels in Ireland. Incredibly powerful and well written. "

    "This book tore my heart out. I feel like after I read it as a child, I turned into an adult almost instantly. I just recently re-read it due to this list, and it really did stand the test of time. Be ready to cry."

    "This book is okay, but a bit overrated since it was so popular. It is a good read, but not one I would include amongst the best"

    "I've read all of Franks' novels and I must say he's inspired me to become a writer. I'm almost ready to publish my first book, and I owe a lot to Frank. Hopefully it's good, and it's too bad Frank isn't around to tell me what he thinks. I think Angela's Ashes is he best work, and I recommend it to anyone!"

    "I was looking for the best must-read biographies and memoirs but was again given a suggestion with little synopsis of what I would be reading about. I don't know who Frank McCourt is or what the Frank McCourt series is. However, reading about one's survival during poverty and cruelty does sound interesting."

    "I've already read this book, but I loved it so much that I bought the audiobook. It's made all the better by McCourt's voice, telling his story like only he can. It's 15 whole hours of literary magic."

    "A really amazing book! This book is extremely well written, and you can really visualize Ireland while reading it. This book will touch you, and make you realize just how good of a life you really. Get this book!!!!"

    "This book is an absolute must-read for everyone. It's raw, gritty, and deals with heavy themes. But it's a necessary reminder of just how harmful poverty is to all of humanity. "

    "A very detailed and interesting memoir. It does have depressing descriptions of the Irish poor during the 1930s and 1940s and so, in that respect it is factual. Yes it would fit in the best most depressing books category."

    "book has high ratings. It looks to be an "olden days" classic book. I do not think I would be interested in the story. However, it does look like many people do like it."

    "This book had nothing to do with angels as I thought it would. It was a fairly interesting read, but if you are looking for angels this is not it. "
