i thought this was dreadful and patronising, can't understand the praise it's getting. abusive father, living on the poverty line BUT OH WHAT AN AMAZING LIFE WE HAVE!!!

err no, you don't.
But the fact that the characters are realistically unlikeable is what prevents it from being patronising! If they had been 'salt of the earth' types with hearts of gold living in noble poverty, that would have been patronising. The whole point is that they are flawed people, living at the fringes of society.
