... hmm naja, nicht gerade schlecht, aber Angela's Ashes legt man nicht mehr aus der Hand bis es fertig ist. 'Tis (ich bin grad bei ca. 1/4.. ist schon manchmal zäh. Und außerdem jammert er ziemlich... eigentlich gar nicht so recht der Frank, den man bisher kannte, der für sein Glück kämpft.
Vielleicht wirds ja noch besser

Wer ihn liebt, findet auch dieses Buch toll... ich mag die EInblicke in das Amerika nach Ellis Island... landeskundlich einfach nur lesenswert! It is the country of the 10000000 possibilities and opportunities...

...aber für mich nicht so spannend. Die Geschichte von Frank McCourt nach seiner Auswanderung aus Irland nach Amerika ist für mich persönlich nicht so fesselnd wir sein Erstwerk.

I read 'Angela's Ashes' some time ago. In that autobiographical novel, McCourt described his poverty-stricken childhood in Ireland. That was a very impressive book that deserved all the praise it received. In 'Tis' , McCourt describes how his life continued in New York, not exactly a bed roses either, but not as devastating as his Irsish childhood ' but then how else could he have written bis book if he hadn't found some piece of mind? He is an excellent oberserver and really knows how to write. 'Angela's Ashes' was only bearable because he kept the forever optimistic perspective of a child. Here he continues his upward struggle to make ends meet. He has many wonderful stories to tell and some not so wonderful ones, but they are all told well.
Even though 'Tis' didn't have the same impact as the one before, it is still an immensely readable book and proves that even though you have a dreadful childhood you can still go on to live a fruitful life - even though the formative years are always somewhat in the background. Very recommendable.

Our hearts ached with saddness for the little McCourt boys of Limerick and then sang with joy if they were ever happy. Through all the pain we took Frankie to our hearts, keeping him there until he grew into a man. He has become "family" to us.
"Tis is another joy to read, bringing Frank McCourt's incredible writing talent before us once again. I waited anxiously for it's release and then savored the words for nine days, reading slowly to make it last longer. When I finished the final page I closed the book and cried.
Having taken Little Frankie to heart, I found it uncomfortable to hear about all his escapades while in Germany. As a mother of a grown son, I felt like it wasn't something I really wanted to hear. I do know that boys will grow up and, it's a "guy thing", but.......
One of the most poignant moments in the book is when he is sharing the sandwich with Horace, his dear black friend, and tells us of his feelings for this man. The other special moment is when he writes the essay about something important in his life.
I have never had a writer peek my inner feelings the way Frank McCourt does. My two daughters, one in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and the second in Dallas,Texas have both read Angela's Ashes and we all agree..... He is the greatest story teller. We were all waiting anxiously for the release of 'Tis to be able to continue on with his life. The day the book was released I purchased three and mailed one to Italy and the other to Dallas. I told my girls, "This is much better that taking you out to lunch."
For the struggles and pain this man experienced I praise and cheer him for his accompolishments. He has given so much insight to me, through these marvelous books, that I am better able to understand some of the hardships that were experienced by my Irish grandparents coming to this country at the turn of the century.
I thank Frank McCourt for the heartwarming gifts he has bestowed upon us. Also, for all the good feelings and great conversation about his books with my family and friends. We could talk all day on the subject.

Angela's Ashes was a unique accomplishment on many levels. Tis was doomed before it ever came out because it would suffer by comparison. However, this is still a great read by an interesting man who has great sensitivity to dialogue, and makes some stinging social observations with great subtlety. The books cannot be compared unless you have strong feelings about the skill the writer had, or did not have in either volume. Is the language rougher, yes, this is a man describing his life, not a child. Does he have opinions that are black and white, with little room for gray at times, yes. Part of the problem with moving from one book to the next, is that the memories of a child, and terrible memories at that, are a powerful force to draw you in, and cause one to feel great sympathy and pain for the child. Then the child becomes a man, and it's much more difficult to carry the same empathy from the first book to the second. In fact I don't think it is possible. If you have read neither book, read this first, and then Angela's Ashes. The books change dramatically when you do. The harsh criticism of the man becomes infinitely more complex and difficult if you learn of the childhood that was his formative years. Most autobiographies, or biographies cover a life, not pieces of a life that in this case are still unfolding. The abrupt change from book one to book two is caused, I believe, because they are bound separately. If he had covered the same period in his life with a single book it would have been more comfortable for the reader. I am glad that he did break his life up, as Angela's Ashes will forever remain a book that will gain the title of a "Classic". Book one was brilliant, it was the author's first, it won The Pulitzer, it one other awards, it is about to be shown as a major motion picture. There is no one that can follow that act #1. Frank McCourt is a great writer who I wish had come to us sooner. I hope he lives to be a hundred so I may selfishly read as much as possible of what he writes.

This is a wonderful book, but it requires that you remove yourself from your negative impressions of Frank as a young man, and enjoy the beatiful story telling of Frank McCourt, as an author. As I read the criticism of this book by other readers, I am dumbfounded that people can critize the book because they don't like the character. The readers complain that they don't like the way McCourt behaved in America. These are complaints against a man and his actions, not against the novel. The subject matter may be upsetting, but the writing is still beautiful. It is utterly unfair to say that one loved Angela's Ashes because they liked the innocent boy Frank, but didn't like 'Tis because they didn't like the man he grew into. This book is brutally honest on McCourt's part. Angela's Ashes was equally disturbing in subject matter and its description of poverty, but the story was told through the innocence of youth and a child. In 'Tis the subject matter can be equally disturbing, but the story is now told through the eyes of an adult and the innocence is lost. This is the sign of a remarkable author, who can take his readers with him through is life and share the events as they appeared to him at the time. It is unrealistic to expect the poor child growing up on the Lane in Limerick to instantly grow into a noble and refined gentleman the way these readers expect him to. This book tells a disturbing and honest story of a man coming of age as an immigrant in New York.
For all of you complaining that you don't like the book because Frank swears, sleeps around, drinks too much and loses interest in his wife, please don't confuse dislike for a disturbing subject matter for dislike for a work of literature.

Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes, a memoir about growing up under difficult circumstances in Brooklyn and Limerick, became an unexpected sensation a couple years ago, and deservedly so. McCourt, using delicate, direct prose, related the difficulty of an impoverished childhood troubled by a hard-drinking, irresponsible father. Angela's Ashes closes with McCourt's journey back to America, and its sequel, 'Tis, picks up almost precisely where its predecessor left off. If McCourt's patriotic closing sentiment in Ashes seemed a bit too simplistic, 'Tis makes it clear that America didn't immediately offer milk and honey to her prodigal son. Undereducated, unwashed, and plagued by eye troubles, McCourt struggles to carve out a life in New York, working as a busboy to the privileged in the '40s before joining the army and eventually returning to New York to resume his education. McCourt is fine prose stylist and a colorful storyteller, and 'Tis, for its first two thirds at least, proves a worthy successor to Angela's Ashes. As McCourt grows older on the page, however, the faux-naif narration that works so well in describing his life as a child and a young man begins to seem more like a device behind which to hide. Later chapters dealing with his marriage and teaching career prove less compelling and less cohesive: Some events (the dissolution of his marriage) seem out of the blue, while others (his own drinking) drop out of the narrative entirely. Closing chapters dealing with the death of McCourt's mother and father are quite moving, however, and readers of Ashes will no doubt find 'Tis a satisfying, if less essential, sequel. DWW

'Tis is a riveting tale of a man, who after coming of age in a poverty stricken lifestyle, overcame hardships and heartbreaks. Moving to a country he will revisit after sixteen years,Frank McCourt must now make it on his own. Remembering the family he left behind, his mother and three brothers, he must make it alone in a place that has changed so much. In a world where a Irish brogue meant you better stick with your own, Frank McCourt had a destiny of proving to the world that he is not a failure. As a highschool student, I simultaniously loved the book and was burdened by the task of reading it in a limited amount oftime. At times I found it dragging,and that was probably because I just wanted Mr. McCourt to find success in a occupation that he loved. I was tired of the suffering becuase hated to read about how pathetic his life was and how vulnerable he became to liquor. I feel that Frank McCourt let his readers down by giving in to the suffering by drinking his paychecks. Overall the book was truly an eye opener that showed you what you have and how lucky we are to have it. Frank McCourt has a beautiful way of telling his portraying the realities of life in general. The ending was definatley a relief for both the reader and Mr.McCourt.
