As a custom title for me, useful I would like it to be. Something descriptive, about me I give: I am "The Limerick Lady."

Thanks Le Deux!   And, I don't think I've ever heard him speak.  I'm sure that would be interesting.

I second that.  I don't often get to hear Irish accents, and I very much think I'd enjoy hearing his!  I really enjoyed his books, he feels like he'd have a warm, deep voice.

I loved Angela's Ashes (thought the film was good as well!) and bought 'Tis, although I've not got to it as yet, am looking forward to it...

BTW - in Angela's Ashes, his lil brother, the ginger one, that's Seamus from Harry Potter!

I finished 'Tis recently and as I wrote on the last book you read thread, I thought it was good but not as compelling as Angela's Ashes.  I actually have Teacher Man right now, but I can't start it until I finish up something else I'm in the middle of.

I kind of liked the fact that Angela's Ashes ended with the quote "'Tis" and 'Tis mentioned Angela's Ashes right near the end.  I thought that kind of brought it back full circle in terms of both the language and the fact that they brought her ashes back to where most of the first book took place.

I remember when I first heard that and then saw the movie. He was adorable!
