YES I KNOW- I READ IT - but the follow on books of frank and his brother werent as good as ANGELAS ASHES- his name was IVE FORGOTTEN ill google it later.

ACTUALLY = i think they made the mother out to be a bit of a moaner towards the end of the book-I HAVE never discussed books reallly-but she shounded a really depressed woman. YES IT WAS CALLED 'TIS'

YA know what I find odd... Look at the life they had.. I mean talk about a good reason to be depressed.. YIKES... Yet despite their terrible life, Frank and his brother seemed rather happy mostly... Although his Bro was an alcoholic.. They both seemed relatively happy... Yet other people are depressed for comparatively no reason at all... Like me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
