Summary Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha

Ys; they're just a little bit restless They're always taking sides bullying each other and secretly wishing they didn't have to All they want is for something anything to happen Throughout the novel Paddy teeters on the nervous verge of adolescence In one scene Paddy tries to make his little brother's hot water bottle explode but gives up after stomping on it just one time I jumped on Sinbad's bottle Nothing happened I didn't do it again Sometimes. Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha reminded me of another famous Irish novel Patrick McCabe s The Butcher Boy Both are narrated by a young boys who grow up in Ireland during the 1960 s and both make use of vernacular and local folklore The Butcher Boy was shortlisted for the Booker in 1992 and Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha won it in 1993But don t be dissuaded from reading Paddy Clarke by thinking that it s of the same both books are novels of childhood in the same country at roughly the same time but achieve different results Young Francie of The Butcher Boy was a sad abused derelict who never had a chance to experience childhood and grow up he retracted into his own small bubble where the world resembles comic books and films with John Wayne In comparison Paddy Clarke is an ordinary young lad who grows up in much better conditions he has a group of friends with whom he runs around town and does various pranks has various adventures with various ends Francie is a character largely oblivious to things happening around him and can be genuinely mean and abusive towards others he observes the world around him largely through the lens of his imagination which he uses to justify his actions with sometimes truly bizarre logic Paddy is an observant boy who sees how the world is changing he runs around the neighborhood and performs pranks with a group of fellow boys but also notices how urban development is slowly encroaching the areas they used to play in he picks on kids but does so largely to remain in the pack with which it commits mischief in the neighborhood Still he begins to notice a creeping disruption into his antics filled life as his parents begin to argue Paddy dedicates himself into improving the mood at home and erase the tension between his parents in a series of touching scenes he stays up in the kitchen for a long time pretending to study so that he can be between them and make them laugh he listens to the news and then tries to discuss them with his father in hope with forming a better bond with him He turns to his younger brother Sindbad on whom he used to previously pick up in hope of finding comfort and support Paddy doesn t uickly mature and grow up rather he is uprooted from the prank filled world of childhood He realizes that there might be no way to stop things that he doesn t understand and can only hope that somehow somehow he will be able to cope and go onThis is a book worth reading for those who enjoy novels with child narrators Roddy Doyle captures Paddy s voice very well While the book might not pull all readers into its world with a disjointed fractured story I believe that it would be a mistake to introduce calculated plotting and seuenced events It s much effective to read through the eyes of a young boy who experiences everything vividly The text flows from one scene to the next like a stream as Paddy s thoughts and emotions mix and change like summer weather with warm sun but also cold and biting rain

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

    This was much better than I had expected based on other reviews and I think expectation is everything with this novel It's not really a story with a plot and the characters experience little in the way of change or development And it’s not uite a stream of consciousness either It’s kind of a mix of impressions and dial
