    The quasi happy ending is hardly enough to compensate for the utterly depressing subject matter of this novel.I gave it four stars because of the author s ability to keep me glued to the pages.Here is one of the great story tellers of our time and book two of this trilogy is waiting to be read ,o joy.

    The first in a planned trilogy, this book takes us from the birth of Charles to his entry to high school Details are abundant, and the style has been compared, fairly, to that of Dickens I found it slow in spots, but the characters stayed interesting Charles loses his baby sister, followed by his mother, and his father is less interested in him than alcohol Charles has an affinity for dogs and they play large roles in his life He is a good natured hardworking boy with a quick smile and a tendenc [...]

    The story of a young boy growing up in Montreal in the 1970 s While I found the story somewhat simple and a little improbable everything always turns out alright for Charles in the end it is an interesting perspective on Montreal and a French Canadian author to discover.
