YMMV: Angela's Ashes
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The book was better received in America (where it won a Pulitzer) than in Ireland, undoubtedly due to its less-than-glowing depiction of Limerick. Ironically, much of its international popularity was likely thanks to the late 90s surge in Hibernophilia.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Malachy Sr has several moments including:
    • Putting his pint down on Eugene's coffin is sadly symbolic; the children die because Malachy Sr drinks away the dole.
    • He drinks the money sent from his parent for the new baby Michael.
  • The Woobie: The entire city of Limerick. Seriously, not one good thing happens for them in the book. But if we're choosing individuals, Frank definitely qualifies.
