4.0 out of 5 stars A tale that exhibits the loss of childhood innocence, 7 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha: Winner of the Booker Prize 1993 (Paperback)
After having read Paddy Clarke ha ha ha, all I can say is that I was entirely satisfied. Although reluctant to dive into the novel, I found myself swallowed by the story of Paddy and the hardships of his life. I was required to write an essay on the novel, at which point it hit me: I have no idea how to summarize it. With all the themes evident in Paddy Clarke, it make sfor an enjoyable read, providing you can get past the Irish slang and the style in which the book is written (Doyle wrote it from Paddy's 10-year old perspective). There were many funny moments, as well as sad ones, that make readers own memories come flowing into the story. If you need a good book about goblins, read The Lord of the Rings. But if you're looking for a heart-warming story about as boy in Ireland in 1968, losing his childhood innocence, get Paddy Clarke.... ummm... yeah.
