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.

A round of applause to the translator, and my admiration to the author. I shall try to read his work in French, just for practice. Great storyteller!

'A lot of serious praying on his behalf had gone on by the time Charles finally poked his glistening head from between the thighs of his mother."From the beginning of Quebec writer Yves Beauchemin's new novel, you know you're in good hands.Originally published in Quebec in 2004, Charles the Bold is the tale of charismatic Charles Thibodeau, and his adventures growing up in Montreal.Beauchemin's many previous novels have garnered him awards, such as the Prix France-Québec and the Prix Jean Giono [...]

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.

The book was very readable.I went on to read: A Very Bold Leap by Yves Beauchemin translated by Wayne Grady but once again have huge problems finding it on . It is the last of the trilogy. This one I read in French. It took me longer but was once again enjoyable. Beauchemin has an easy writing style that is descriptive without being too much. I was sorry [...]

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.
