This diary barely gives you time to catch your breath from one joke before knocking you down with another. Each entry is filled with the worry and angst of every teenage boy. Is this spot getting bigger? Why isn't this getting bigger?!! Adrian Mole is an average teenage boy living with a screwball family in a crazy neighbourhood. His arguing mother and father may well be alcoholics, his dog may be clinically insane and his friend Nigel is most likely gay, but all this seems to pass Adrian by as he fawns over the love of his life Pandora. Along the way he meets a remarkable range of characters: Bert Baxter, a crusty old man whom Adrian must take ... Read the complete review

I first came across this book when I was about 14 years old, and I have to say that I finished the whole thing in about two evenings (which was highly unusual for me), and now, 14 years later, I still howl with laughter each time I re read it! Adrian Mole's journals illustate the life of a complicated 13 year old boy and his woes, being an unrecognised 'academic', his first love, Pandora who is of a higher social class, his relationship with his wayward parents, one of whom runs off to Sheffield with the man across the road after his wife leaves him for another woman and the other who falls for Doreen 'Stick Insect' Slater and his jealousy for best friend ...

I first read this book when I was much younger. In the mood for some light reading, I bought it for my Kindle and settled in to read. A few hours later I'd finished the whole book, and had been reminded how laugh-out-loud Adrian could be. The book is written in a diary format, and documents a year in the life of Adrian Mole, a typical self-centred teenager. With worries including such things as spots, the size of his 'thing', family issues and a constant desire for his love, Pandora, you can't help rooting for Adrian. Sure, he's annoying at times, but that's part of his charm. Adrian really has no idea how he comes across to those around ... Read the complete review

What a fantastic read! I first read this when I was at school (15 years ago) and I would recommend it to any young person who wants to get into reading. It is easy to read and easy to understand for children from the age of 9 or 10 years old. The fact that this is the start of Adrian Mole's journey through his teenage years, his troubles with Pandora - a girl at the same school who is just out of his reach, family woe's, teenage issues are addressed greatly in this book but beautifully weighed up with comedy. A guaranteed laugh out load in every chapter! Well worth getting the entire series and following Adrian and the Mole family through their ... Read the complete review
