WHAT A LIFE THIS MAN HAS LED! THE STORY OF HIS LONG JOURNEY TO REDEMPTION IS HILARIOUS AND TUGS AT YOUR HEARTSTRINGS IN THE RECOUNTING OF IT. MALACHY COULD HAVE EASILY LED THE SAME LIFE AS HIS FATHER, BUT HIS LONGING FOR HIS CHILDREN TO HAVE WHAT HE MISSED PULLED HIM INTO BEING THE FATHER HE LONGED FOR BUT NEVER HAD. ALONG THE WAY, HE HAD A RAUCOUS GOOD TIME AND MIRACULOUSLY LIVED TO GET HIS LIFE ON TRACK. HE WON THE HEART OF A BEAUTIFUL SMART WOMAN WHO WAS WILLING TO GO THE DISTANCE WITH HIM. HER LONG WAIT WAS REWARDED AFTER MUCH TRIBULATION, AND MALACHY BECAME THE FATHER AND HUSBAND SHE SO RICHLY DESERVED. AS USUAL, THE MCCOURT SPIRIT SHINES THROUGH IN LYRICAL PROSE THAT IS SPELLBINDING.

McCourt writes with an unassuming, natural quality that he does not censor,as he tells on himself, and various happenings in his life. The book is an assessment of his life, told in a refreshing style, full of real and intended emotion that grabs the reader when least expected. His style is unique, interesting, cynical, satirically humorous, and so typically of an Irish mind. Overall, it is a delightful book, the best part being his attraction, and continous caring for his beloved Diana. A great deal of courage is what it took to write this book. I am glad I am reading it, and intend, by the nature of this writing, to continue reading Malachy McCourt's books. Respectfully submitted, C.A.Higgins

I listened to this audiobook at the behest of a friend. This guy is absolutely hilarious. I found myself sitting in my car after arriving at my destination completely engrossed in his story. The fact that he tells his own story with that brogue makes it that much more powerful and amusing. His story is funny, sad, exciting and very real. I felt like he was telling me his story directly to me (in the back of some pub in Ireland). It was my first audiobook and actually got me hooked on books in this format. Buy it, you'll listen to it more than once, as I have.
