CHARACTERS Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha FREE DOWNLOAD ñ Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha In Roddy Doyle's Booker Prize winning novel Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha an Irish lad named Paddy rampages through the streets of Barrytown with a pack of like minded hooligans playing cowboys and Indians etching their names in wet concrete and setting fires Roddy Doyle has captured the sensations and speech patterns of preadolescents with consummate skill and managed to do so without resorting to sentimentality Paddy Clarke and his friends are not bad bo. I hate to be facetious about this but it s true I love to read good books as much as I love to discover which ones are actual impostors that is which ones are overrated past the norm books like On the Road Catcher in the Rye or anything by Ayn Rand Yuck Well this one won the Booker which I can only guess is a HUGE deal But I guess the year this book was published there were a few other if any contenders for the top prizeIt s certainly not awful It s actually entertaining readable sometimes funny There is true mastery of the language here an even flow The tone is tolerable than say Emma Donoghue s Room which is also about a child growing up But although I am not at all a fan of the almighty Huck Finn I must say that this one does not possess that wackiness there is some unconscious logic to Twain s tale at the very least This is a chapterless novel a pretty ordinary account of a pretty ordinary boy What is the main motor that keeps the prose congruent that makes the entire novel work The fact that Patrick s parents fight That s all They keep it private they try to keep the kids out of it yet this still registers within Paddy he s human alright just not a remarkable oneIndeed Bookers are bestowed upon like the Pulitzers here in the US to novels that exemplify the experience of being European American for a Pulitzer This hits several targets to become a well loved book but it still remains a coming of age story of an Irish imp a precocious slightly evil ten year old boy Who do we side with in this account of playground cruelty cute impressions With the bully The victim In this case I would say neitherApathy is the worst type of feeling a book can give its reader
