Publisher's Summary

Patrick Clarke is a 10-year-old boy trying to make sense of his world. He is confused. His Ma and Da fight too much. School seems like a joke. And love, though it has a good reputation, seems pretty cruel. Paddy sees everything, but has trouble understanding it all. His story is an exuberant romp through the triumphs, indignities, and troublemaking detours of an Irish childhood.

Written with warmth and wit by the author of The Commitments, which was made into a hit movie, Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha is the most moving story about the humor and challenge of growing up since Catcher in the Rye.

©1993 Roddy Doyle; (P)1994 Reed Audio

    "wrong order"

    This isn't read in the correct order. What edition could he possibly be reading? I checked three copies and couldn't figure it found. It also skips some lines and parts. OK listen overall if you're not trying to read with the book.

    "Disappointing Listen"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Nothing. The stories never occurred as connected or coherent and was not interesting, though occasionally hilarious. Admittedly, I stopped listening half way through, though I do not think Roddy Doyle gave me no reason to finish.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Roddy Doyle again?

    Probably not.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Good narration of a difficult listen, for me.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Paddy Clarke Ha-Ha-Ha?

    I would never have printed it.
