Read this book for school. Like everyone else in my class and previous classes that have be forced to read it, I loath it. Duddy has no soul, there are continuity errors, and all the other characters are only marginally less awful than Duddy. Oh, and the teacher whose perspective the book is first from? The one we all though was the main character? He may as well be dead. We never hear from him again after part one.
10/10, worse book I've ever read.
(Can you tell I'm bitter about it?)
The book is from 1959. So it has that feeling. All in all this is a story of crazy obsession about money. What's it gonna be after the lake? The world? Kravitz is a pathetic character lost in a capitalistic way of thinking. He is not a happy camper, always grabbing at straws. and never achieving peace of mind.
The book starts out as typically appealing Canadiana, and takes a sudden and surprising turn at the end of chapter three when we find out Duddy’s father is a pimp. Is this the apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz in this 1959 novel?
The answer is no, and we return to a pleasant stream of Canadian writing taught at high schools across the country.
Great book ! I've seen the movie years ago and the book is better by far ! MR is a great author and his descriptions of Montreal are very accurate.
