             1. After reading the opening chapter of Angela's Ashes, I felt that the book that the author had gone through a lot of things in his childhood, from moving to Ireland from New York. On the first page you can clearly see how life was a great hardship for himself and his family. " nothing can compare with the Irish version: the poverty; the shiftless loquacious father; the pious defeated mother moaning by the fire-(McCourt 11). The first chapter discusses Angela, Frank McCourt's mother and who the book is based upon, and her life before she had children. When I read this part of the memoir, it became a reality of how life was for the poor coming to America, especially by themselves as Angela did.
             As I continued to read the memoir and as I came to the halfway point of the book, reality hit me even harder to see Frank's family struggle to simply get milk for his brothers and sister.
