So far, I see Jerry Cruncher primarily as a comic figure. Later on in the novel, he grows into a more sympathetic figure. His comic usually comes from his feelings against the "flopping" (praying) of his wife and his uneducated dialogue.
Jerry Cruncher is an untrustworthy character because his actions and his words do not measure up. He plays the rebel in the novel and also a tyrant towards his poor wife, Mrs. Cruncher. He exhibits rebellious traits because of his night job, a resurrection-man, which is someone who sells the deceased to scientists for money. Obviously, digging up dead bodies is very, very illegal which makes him a man who lacks a conscience. Furthermore, Mrs. Cruncher is always being attacked because of her beliefs and values by Jerry. His anger towards Mrs. Cruncher’s “praying” results from the guilt he receives from his night job. In my opinion, Jerry Cruncher can be represented in a phrase, “my way or the highway” because he only cares about his well-being. I believe Jerry will create a lot of drama in Book Three.
Jerry Cruncher is a porter (messenger) for Tellson’s and has a wife and a child named jerry. Mr. Cruncher is a cruel man as shown when he abused his wife after telling her not to pray. By day he works as a porter but by night he is a “fisherman” or grave robber shown in chapter 14 when goes to dig up roger cly’s body to sell to a doctor. Right now I think his role in the book is to offer a bit of comedy but I think he has a much more important role in the book that we have not see yet.
I do agree that Jerry Cruncher is a very rude and untrustworthy character due to his night job, of a resurrection-man and his violence towards his wife but after reading more of the book; i find him to be very loyal and faithful towards Mr. Lorry and the Manette family. An example of loyalty would be when he acted as a bodyguard to help Lucie and her kids to be safe in Paris. Even when there was a chance of being killed by Madame Defarge near the end of the book, he still kept his mouth shut until the very end. Also throughout the book, he has always sent his messages without fail.
Jerry Cruncher is an interesting character. He is self centered and paranoid always assuming that when his wife is praying that she is praying for his misfortune. He is uneducated but very savvy in other fields. He moonlights as a resurrection man, a less than legal pursuit, but although he is a criminal he is very much a trustworthy person who can always be counted on to do what is asked of him.
Jerry Cruncher is a very strange character. He shows he is short-tempered when he gets mad at his wife for praying, which he thinks is against himself. He also lies to her by telling her he is going "fishing" when he actually dug up Roger Cly's body to sell to scientists. I believe he will have a much larger role in Book Three.
I do agree, Jerry Cruncher is a very rude man. He is a grave robber at night (he dug up Roger Cly's body) and if that doesn't make him bad enough, he lies to his wife about it and he tells her he's going fishing. He also beats her because she is praying. However I do agree with Joyce that he can also be a good man because he protects Lucie Manette and her kids and keeps his word. So it seems to me that there is more to this Cruncher character then what we see at the moment in the book.
Jerry Cruncher is a strange character in this novel. He has a short temper, and likes to talk to himself. He lies about his job as a grave robber, a "resurrection-man", and tells his wife he is going "fishing". On the other hand though, he can be seen as trustworthy and hardworking, as he kepts Lucie and the kids safe when in Paris. Mr. Cruncher is a character that confuses me, and sometimes he does not seem like he is all there. Jerry is a character that i am interested into seeing who is he really is.
In my opinion Jerry Cruncher is an ignorant, self absorbed, and abusive man. He demonstrates his ignorance through his speech on many occasions. For instance he says "conwey" instead of convey on page 149 and "dewelop" instead of develop on page 158. He also shows that he is self absorbed through constantly over viewing what others have done that could be the cause of his misfortune in his grave digging. For instance he blames his bad luck on the fact that his wife prays, or "flopping" as he calls it. He repeatedly demonstrates abuse through his treatment to his wife also. Examples of this are when he throws his muddy boot at her, and how he degrades her by making her feel less than him, undeserving and that she does not fufill her duties as a wife. I find Mr. Cruncher very similar to Mr. Jeremiah Flintwich in Little Dorrit, also by Charles Dickens. The two are very abusive towards their wives on a daily basis. I wonder if Charles Dickens created characters like this to make a point on marriages and how they are not all fairy tale endings.
In my opinion, Jerry Cruncher is a character with two different personalities, one which he uses at home and the other when he works. He can be very rude and untrustworthy but can be loyal and honest as well. He shows his negative side to his wife by abusing her but his positive side to people he works like Mr. Lorry and the Manette family. I think this character will be a help for the Manette family during the French Revolution.
In my opinion, Jerry Cruncher could potentially have mental issues, such as schizophrenia. When placed in different situations, he is always acting differently, and is a character impossible to predict his further reactions. Jerry could end up being very important in this novel, or just for certain people.
In the beginning of the novel I thought Jerry Cruncher is more of a comedic character, he was very trustworthy doing business with Mr.Lorry and the people of Tellson's Bank. All of a sudden in Book the Second, we see another side of Cruncher as he strongly forbids his wife to pray because he was assuming his wife was praying against whatever he was doing. That and the fact that he had muddy boots and "rusty" hands foreshadowed that he was a grave robber. I think what Charles Dickens was trying to tell us with Jerry Cruncher was you will never know a person truly. Also, with Jerry Cruncher, Charles Dickens demonstrates the desperate times in this era of economic corruption. I do not believe Jerry Cruncher is a bad character for grave robbing or abusing his wife. After learning more about the suffering that came before and after the French Revolution, it is hard to hate him for doing such a thing. He is trying to survive a hopeless world, and venting his anger on his wife and grave robbing for money is quite understandable.
I believe that although Jerry Cruncher seems to be deceitful towards people like his wife, as evidenced by his telling her he is going "fishing" when he digs up Roger Cly's body, he is overall very trustowrthy.Jerry is a man who obviously puts his work before his own family and as such, will do whatever it takes to complete a job given to him. He just wants to spare his wife all the gruesome details. He gives the air of stupidity at times but he is very skilled at his work. I think he's an amusing fellow.
Jerry cruncher is a man that works at Tellson's bank. he is uneducated, therefore does many odd jobs. including messenging. he has a wife and a child. during the nights he often works as a ressurection man, a person who digs up bodies to sell to scientists. seeing as autopsy's were illegal back then, the scientists needed to recieve coprses from illegal ways. Jerry is very short tempered. he abuses his wife for the simple reason that she was praying. Jerry doesn't seem like a very important character so far, but he is linked to many of the main characters. this could lead to bigger implications
Overall I think Jerry is a very harsh, paranoid, uneducated and aggresive individual.He is constant abuse of his wife is an example of his agression. He will often suddenly snap at her, causing him to lash out both verbally and physically.On occasion, Jerry acts in a way that makes me belive he is smarter than he wants people to believe. He found a way to support his family dispite not having an education, and he manipulates his son to share his beliefs in regards to his wife. However, he has no education, and can't even pronounce simple words such as "develop".I'm curious to see what impact Jerry will have in the book. At this point, he is a reoccuring character who helps explain the social situation of the time, but that is the only purpose I have noticed. Some people belive he is supposed to be comical, but I disagree. I don't find his abusive nature, or inability to pronounce his word very entertaining.
Jerry Cruncher had somewhat small role in this novel. He is mostly well known as the “Resurrection Man,” as he digs up dead bodies. He seems a bit crazy as he constantly talks to himself and abuses his wife saying her prayers are the reason he feels guilty. Throughout the big, his role does not exactly get bigger. By the end of the book, his image is a little better seeing as he helped the Manette family and Miss Pross escape when Carton told them to.
At the beginning of the novel I saw Jerry Cruncher as a comic character. He is employed as a porter for Tellson’s Bank of London and I thought he seemed trustworthy. However, as the novel progressed he became very rude, selfish, and dishonest. He is a gruff, short-tempered, superstitious, uneducated man. He attempts to earn extra money by working as a ‘resurrection man’ which means he removes bodies from their graves at night and sells them to medical schools. This shows that he is very untrustworthy and only cares about himself because he is going against the law to earn extra money. I think his purpose is to add humour to the novel while providing other examples of the hard times during the French Revolution.
Jerry Cruncher is a man I see as some-what bipolar. For one, he keeps yelling at his wife and evidently beating her because she keeps praying, and he believes that she is praying for something bad to happen. He is very short-tempered and therefore gets angry at the littlest things. He digs up dead bodies and gives them to scientists, but he does it only for the money.Though he does have some negative qualities, he has some good ones, as well; for one, he is determined, and this helps a lot when he is trying to get some money. Nothing can get in his way. He will always get the job done, no matter what. Although he seemingly does not want to take care of his own wife and family, he vows to protect Lucie & the kids, no matter what.He is a kind man with good intentions, though they sometimes come out as cruel.
It was interesting to see how Jerry referred to himself as an "honest tradesman" on page 156, when talking to his wife. From my view of chapter 14, I really agree that Jerry is an honest tradesman because it is evident how hard the economic times are and that he puts his work before anything and anyone else. You cannot blame Jerry for being paranoid because "graving digging" was illegal at the time and Jerry had to make ends meet. Like the saying goes "desperate times calls for desperate measures". Jerry is probably afraid that someone will find out about his digging, which might cause big problems for him. I don't think Jerry intends to be abusive to his wife, however I think he believes that she doesn't appreciate the multiple jobs he has to do to make ends meet, thus making him mad. Jerry Cruncher literally "recalls people to life" by digging them out of their graves and this really adds a lot of comic relief because the book focuses a lot on corruption, suffering,starvation, despair and there we see Jerry Crunch just randomly digging people out of their graves!
Jerry Cruncher is a weird, quirky and comedic character. To me, he is a person who leads a double life, in one life , he is the man who delivers messages for the bank and on the side that no one knows, he is a grave robber. This also plays on the theme, Re-Called to life, because he is taking people out of there death beds and taking them to the surface one last time. I really like reading about Jerry because he is unpredictable and fun to read about. When you say "What the Heck" reffering to Jerry Cruncher, there is no way to answer that question. You never know what you are going to get.
Jerry Cruncher is an awesome character and is so far my favourite in the novel. I remember Ms. O talking about how in those days people would dig up graves and sell them. The class would have the whole "what the hell?" reaction so I found it quite comical to learn about his real job. I do not find that Cruncher is a very important part in the novel but the parts with him I find are the most intriguing because you never know what side of him you will end up getting. He has two personalities, one for each of the lives he leads. Reading other responses, everyone is noticing the two personalities, but I find that the two different personalities are almost exact opposites of each other. Honest and trustworthy with the men from Telsons however dishonest and untrustworthy with his wife. I also do not think that his character is fully developed even to think point in the novel.
Jerry Cruncher is a very ignorant man. He is very short-temper and doesn't take many things lightly. Cruncher abuses his wife because she prays. He works for Tellson's bank and as many people have already written, he is a grave robber. He has two different personalities, when he is with his wife he is rude and not honest. When he is working, he is hard working and trustworthy. He has very contradicting personalities that are the complete opposite of one another.
Jerry Cruncher, what the heck?? Jerry Cruncher is a very odd man and in my professional opinion he has dual personalities. Like many have said at the beginning of the book we observed how short of a temper he had and his wife pushed the wrong buttons. Just because his wife was praying he became violent. His home life is very different from his work life. He works two jobs, both of which on the opposite ends of the spectrum. During the day he is a trustworthy,honest(like many people have already said), and hard working messenger for Tellson's bank. At night he is a grave robber. A grave robber is a person that digs up graves of the deceased and steals either the body itself and/or the artifacts in the grave, such as jewelry etc. Essentially Jerry Cruncher is a criminal at night. Like Kendra said his personalities are very contradicting.I agree with Pragya that Jerry Cruncher is a comic figure in the novel. I think that he is still developing.
Jerry Cruncher? What the heck is with this guy? When he is working he is hardworking, efficient and honest and when he is around his wife he is rude and ignorant. We will have to get to the bottom of this guy and analyze his character a little more to truly understand the reasoning for some of his actions. Jerry’s everyday job is that he and his son serve as Tellson’s official messengers. But as his side job he steals fresh bodies from graces and sells them to doctors for use in their studies, this is called a “Resurrection Man.” Jerry demonstrates numerous times throughout the novel his hatred toward his wife’s praying and calls it “flopping.” Overall we can establish that jerry Cruncher is a very untrustworthy, ignorant, stubborn and somewhat comical figure in this novel that should not necessarily be taken all that seriously throughout this novel.
Jerry Cruncher, what a character. Jerry Cruncher is a very interesting man. He has a pretty weird job, aside from his job of the messenger for Tellson's Bank, which he does with his son. He is a grave robber, and sells freshly deceased bodies to doctors for practice and research purposes. He is a very ignorant and rude man. He portrays these characteristics when he gets mad at his wife for praying and thinks it will be bad luck towards himself. This proves that he rarely thinks of others and their wants and needs, and mainly thinks of himself. Although he is quite weird and ignorant, he is regarded as one of Tellson's fastest messengers by Mr. Jarvis Lorry. Jerry Cruncher is a very interesting, rude, weird, stubborn, tempered, captivating man.
Jerry Cruncher's personality parallels his jobs. He has odd jobs and very odd personality changes. His jobs are a messenger for Tellson's bank,doing errands for whoever needs them,and a "resurrection-man" digging up bodies and giving them to scientists. His personality parallels his odd jobs because like Marissa said he is honest hardworking when at work. However, when he goes to his apartment he is somewhat abusive and thick-headed because he won't listen to what his wife has to say.
As many people said Jerry Cruncher has to contradictory personalities. He appears to be a good honest man, and he is a grave robber/abusive husband. There are times when we read the novel from Jerry's perspective, that he is funny but I can't help disliking him. Jerry Cruncher is a simpleton. During the day with his honest job he is an honest man because the people he works for are smarter and more powerful than him. But during the night, hidden from view, he is a grave robber (which is illegal!), and with his wife, who happens to be weaker than him, he is horrible and abusive. In my opinion Jerry Cruncher is a coward. The only reason he has dual personalities is because he is putting on a pretense as an honest man. His real personality is what we saw when he was at home. I think that in this book Jerry Cruncher will be around often but won't cause any trouble. Though if I had to pick a character to be worried about for Charles Darnay, the Manettes etc. I would choose seemingly innocent Jerry Cruncher.
I think that Jerry is a very wicked and hateful man. Always believing that his wife is out to get him. He also seems to show no remorse for digging up bodys. With is lack of morals i think he would have fit right in during the revolution. As you can see later in the book when he follows the coffin barrers and becomes very rude to the people walking by.
Dont know what happened there but anyways...Jerry Cruncher is a very interesting character. You can see from the moments that we met him that he is a very hard working man at the Tellsons bank. As we continue to learn more about him we discover that he is very rude and discrescpectful towards his wife. He believes that she is also out to get him. I believe that he unleashes his anger that he has built up inside towards his wife. As we continue to read further into the book we learn that Jerry is a very misterious character that goes out late at night digging up graves.Jerry Cruncher is a very interesting and mysterious character that I look forward to learning more about.
Jerry Cruncher is a very interesting character in the novel. He seems to have multiple versions of his character depending on the time in the book. At some times he is screaming at his wife for praying and the next moment he is digging up dead bodies. These actions show that he has multiple personalities.When he is around his wife, he is the biggest jerk you will ever meet. He will scream and yell every time she tries to pray or be religious. He will even beat her if he catches her praying. Secondly, he is very sneaky. He will not tell his wife or son what his evening “job” is. In reality he digs up graves and sells the bodies to scientists for some extra cash. I do not see how his wife would ever trust him, considering he won’t even tell her where he is going. Thirdly, he is hard working. This is shown when he is working either at Tellson’s or working as a errand boy outside. He will even bring his son to work to show him what he does and how responsible he can truly be. This shift in personality and attitude is not what as a husband or even a friend. You would never know which Jerry you would get.
Jerry Cruncher doens.t seem to display a solid character all the way through the book. He is very different in defferent situations. Jerry is a porter or messenger for Tellsons bank, a fine profession in which he works very hard at. Akthough he hworks hard at this job by day he has an illegal job by night. He digs up dead bodes and sells them to scientists. This shows that he does not follow the law and makes him seem somewhat dark. Then we see that he abuses his wife at home, because she is praying. Not sure as to why he does this, but maybe because he feels like he could never be a religious man due to his night profession. Although he seems to think she is praying against him.It doesn;t seem like Jerry plays an extremely important role in this book but poerhaps that changes later on.
I found it a bit odd how at the end of The Honest Tradesman Cruncher was somewhat proud that his son wanted to be a resurrection man when he grew up. Although a Jerry Cruncher would be flattered that his child would like to be like him I’m sure he’d be upset that his son would want to have an occupation that is illegal. Also he is very abusive; he beats his wife because he she disapproves of his night job. Cruncher adds humor to the book with his uneducated dialogue and despite his disrespect towards his wife, he is a big help to the Manettes and eventually promises to give up his job as a resurrection man.
Jerry Cruncher’s role is down played but I feel he is important to the plot as he serves the purpose of demonstrating the corruption of the times. Jerry cruncher was “raggedly bald, he had stiff, black hair, standing jaggedly all over it, and growing downhill almost to his broad, blunt nose” (Dickens 12). This description of Jerry paints the picture of the times – all dishevelled and in disarray. Jerry is so desperate that he works as a “Resurrection-Man,” someone who digs up dead bodies and sells them to scientists. This illustrates how low some people were willing to go just to be able to make a meager living. He is very rude to his wife and treats all of his family disdain. He doesn’t appreciate his wife praying and believes that no prayers are going to help. He, like most of the peasants doesn’t believe that anything, including divine intervention is going to help them out of their desperate times.
Jerry Cruncher is the odd-job man for Tellson’s bank, an occasional messenger or porter. He would wait outside the bank with his son, Young Jerry, and wait to be called on by one of the bank’s clerks. He appears to be very influential towards his son, as Young Jerry follows his father’s every lead. Jerry Cruncher’s personality seems to vary from the first book to the second. He seems to act differently when dealing with different people. In the first book, Jerry seems to be more of a comedic and loyal character. When delivering the message to Mr. Lorry, he strikes one as very reliable and hardworking. He also acts more polite. I think that he gives more respect to people with more authority.In the second book, we see a different side to Jerry Cruncher. He is first seen yelling at his wife, for simply praying, as he believes that her praying is the cause of his problems. This shows that Jerry is selfish, only caring for his own needs. We also find out that Jerry is not as trustworthy as he appeared to be in the first book. Jerry lies to his family about his night job, which is truly illegal. He digs up dead bodies and sells them to scientists in order to gain extra money.I believe that Jerry Cruncher cannot be described in one specific personality. His character and traits vary from day to night, person to person.
I greatly dislike Jerry Cruncher. He is terrible to his wife and turns his son against his own mother, always having him watch her to make sure she is not praying. He is a terrible role model for his son, from his graverobbing to his completely uneducated manner. He is constantly complaining about his wife and doesn't appreciate her at all. If he hates her so much why did he marry her? Or better yet, why did she marry him? He really plays no role in this novel, aside from doing odd jobs for Tellsons bank that Mr. Lorry does not have time to do himmself. I suppose he was put in this novel just to show what the average joe was like in England during the time.
Jerry Cruncher is such a strange, short tempered and poorly educated character that I feel is meant to be portrayed as a comical figure in the book. He does small jobs for Tellsons bank such as delivering letters and messages but when night arrives he goes "fishing" in the grave yard for dead bodies to steal their valuables. He is a very bad role model because he abuses his wife for praying which shows that he must be hiding something(like his second job) for praying is a holy act and he of all people is not religious in his manner. Also he influences his son to disgrace his mother and is pleased when he mentions how he wants to be a resurrection man(stealing from graves) like himself. It is odd that even though Jerry is so arrogant and rude towards his family they still stick around and deal with him. If I was his wife as soon as he started whipping shoes at me I would out of there. It just shows that maybe there is more to Jerry than portrayed in the book and maybe his character is not involved enough in the book for us to truly see all his different sides.
Jerry Crucher is a very odd character. he is obviously uneducated or something, because the way he speaks is completely opposite from how all the other charaters in the book speak. Dichotomy! Juxtaposition! Other charaters speak clearly and properly. He speaks in a very gruff and rough sort of way, shown by his use of slang and the lack of clarity in his formation of words and sentences. Also, he talks to himself! WHAT?! he also does not treat his wife very nicely. I figure he is a very strange man and an odd character, but will end up playing an important role later on....
We first met Jerry Cruncher as a messenger traveling on hoarse to deliver a message to Jarvis Lorry. However that was a while ago and I thought we would not see him again or only see him as the ‘odd-job’ man for Tellson’s Bank. We learn more about Jerry during the novel. It turns out the Jerry is an angry, sneaky man and a bad role-model. He is an angry man because he is constantly getting mad and yelling at his wife for praying for him. He preserves that this is the reason why he has bad luck. Jerry is a sneaky man because he also has another job as a resurrection man. This means that he digs up peoples bodies to steal jewelry or valuable items that may be in the coffin with the person. Lastly he is a bad role model to his son young Jerry. He will yell and beat his wife while young Jerry is in the house. I feel bad for the wife because I her husband is clearly an awful man.
I see Jerry Cruncher as being nothing more then comic relief and little relief at that. I mostly see him as just another person living their life in the book who just happens to interact with the main characters. Much like in life actually, where there are people you know who aren’t very involved in major aspects. I classify him as what I like to call a “filler character” by which I mean he is only given the roles that the main characters wouldn’t fit into to.
Jerry Cruncher is an employ of Tellson’s Bank. He will have a larger role in the following book as we find out more about his mysteries and implications with the main characters. Already he accompanied Lorry and Lucie to Paris to recall Dr. Manette to life. He witnessed the court case of Charles Darnay, and is a trusted “body guard” of Jarvis Lorry as he accompanies him to France at the end of Book Two. He is described as a dark and mysterious character; with his spiky hair, dark look about him his true intentions are unknown. All the hinting towards Jerry Cruncher’s after work outings implies that they will be of importance later in the book. Since finding out that Jerry Cruncher is a resurrection man after he finishes his “odd jobs” at Tellson’s Bank, rather than fishing, I believe that digging out graves will play a role in the plot since a continuous theme throughout the Tale of Two Cities, is the “recalling of life” both emotionally and physically. This could mean that, Jerry Cruncher working as a “Resurrection Man” perhaps will play a role in this theme. I predict that an important person was physically recalled to life and have already made assumptions about a certain “buried” body mentioned in Chapter 14. Jerry Curncher and his son witnessed a passing funeral as they waited for jobs outside of Tellson’s Bank. The dead body was of an Old Bailey’s Spy by the name of Roger Cly (witness at Charles Darnay’s court case and was accused by Mr.Stryver of being a spy). Jerry volunteered to attend the burial, and it seems this particular funeral would have importance in the book since Jerry Cruncher has already become involved with it. We are yet to find out the real role of Jerry Cruncher.
Jerry Cruncher is stated to be a rude character by many people. I don't believe he is so rude of a character. His job as a grave roober obviously lacks morals. He, however, is very polite durring his day job and treats people very well. I think that his problem is his lackof education.Due to this lack he is forced to stoop down to low levels to get enough for his family to survive.
I find Jerry Cruncher to be an odd man it’s almost as if he has a split personality because at times he can be a humble man but at other times he can be very aggressive and bizarre. The main spots where I notice this is where he during the day can just pick up odd jobs and live off what seems like what would make him next to no money but then during the night go and grave rob. Another thing proving his split personality is that around Mr. Lorry he his very reserved and very introverted but when he gets home he switches where he yells at his wife for praying and always blames her for praying that he loses work. In terms of the role his character plays I think he is mostly in there for some comic relief and he also adds a little depth to the novel showing the connections between characters.
I don't like Jerry Cruncher at all, he actually really bothers me, and the more I read the more i disliked him. It was completely random when he lost it on his wife, and other such incidents really made me question him. He clearly didn't have his head screwed on too tight, and this was made obvious through his scattered mood changes and unpredictable personality. At times he brought humour to the novel, but even then Sydney was way funnier. He was uneducated, which made him have to work hard to support his family, but what's the point when he's going home and using them as his verbal whipping post?!
^ first off I'd like to say how much erins post truly and untterly made my night. <33Jerry Cruncher is a man connected to the Tellson’s Bank When first introduced he was a messenger delivering a note to a banker named Jarvis Lorry. He may seem trustworthy on the outside, but he is untrustworthy on the inside. Jerry Cruncher really portrays the saying “looks can be deceiving”. He is a self-centered character and although he is not as wealthy as others, he still thinks he’s more powerful then other. Jerry Cruncher’s physical appearance is described as raggedly bald, stiff black hair, and a broad blunt nose. These physical features, you would automatically to be unappealing. His assumption to when his wife prays is that she is praying against him. An interesting fact about Jerry Cruncher is that he talks to himself. Instead of keeping things to himself, he says things out loud to analyze things more clearly. Jerry Cruncher is also considered a “fisherman” but realistically called a resurrection-man; people who dig up bodies to sell to scientists. Jerry Cruncher is one intriguing character because of the many facts about himself and his work.
Jerry Cruncher, who works at Telson's Bank, is different from the first book to the second. He seems to be, as others have mentioned, a comedic character, but in the second book he becomes a character I greatly dislike.Jerry is short-tempered, uneducated, controlling and a terrible parent and husband. Not only does he beat his wife for praying, but he forces his opinions on his son, having him make sure she does not pray at any time. He is a "Resurrection-Man", which means he digs up peoples graves and sells them to scientists, showing he is absolutely immoral.
Jerry Cruncher, works for Jarvis Lorry at Telsons bank, was definitly not my favourite character in the book. His personlity wasn't like other characters and he truly represented dispair. He is untrustworthy and the way he treats his wife is unexceptable. He mistreated her because he was so paranoid about the fact she may have been praying against him when in reality she was not.
NOT a fan of this man. He is terrible towards his wife, he shows no compassion at all. If he didn't have such a terrible second "job" he wouldn't be so paranoid all the time. He is a poor excuse for a man!
I agree with most people when I say that I do not like Jerry Cruncher at all. In the first book I had no real opionion on the man, he performed his duties and was trusted by Jarvis Lorry. After reading the second book I have decided that I absolutley and completelty dislike Cruncher. He is paranoid, cruel, violent and selfish man. He abuses his wife when all she shows him is love, if it is possible to love this man, she prays for him and her family and in return Cruncher yells at her and abuses her and treats her like a prisoner in her home.He blames his short comings on her praying. I agree with others when they say he is paranoid about his grave robbing and thats why is so against her praying as well. He digs up graves for his own benefit and lies about it to all. He shows little appreciation or like for his son, only at the end of the book when he wants to make sure his son will have a job when he is gone does he really ackowledge him. The only time Jerry did anything useful was sucessfully completing the duties Jarvis Lorry needed him to.
When did Jerry Cruncher go grave digging?
Hey hey! "God love you if you aren't writing this down" as Carmelo and Sam Dean would say!
