The fact that the story is set in a first-person narrative - with a bewildered 10-year old as the narrator ... Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha é uma memorável história de meninos, ou, como diria The Times, temos aí uma ótima safra 1968 de Dublinenses (em alusão a Joyce). Now the novel's winning title finds its context, not as the happy hoot of Paddy's being, but in other voices chanting on the playground: 'Paddy Clarke - / Paddy Clarke - / Has no da / Ha ha ha.' This review is from: Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha (Paperback) Written from the perspective of a 10 year old boy, Doyle's writing throughout the book is in short bursts, talking about one thing then off on another. This very much emulates the way children's thought patterns jump from one thing to another. In Roddy Doyle's novel, Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha, young Patrick is so distressed over his parents' fighting with each other that he stays up all night trying to prevent their quarrels.
