The Adrian Mole diaries are thoroughly subversive. A true hero for our time’ Richard Ingrams. The real greatness of Townsend’s creation comes from the gap between aspiration and reality

The Adrian Mole diaries are thoroughly subversive. The real greatness of Townsend’s creation comes from the gap between aspiration and reality. Adrian Mole is one of literature’s great underachievers; his tragedy is that he knows it and the sadness of this undercuts the humour and makes us laugh not until, but while, it hurts’ Daily Mail. Adrian Mole is one of the great comic characters of our time.

This book was one of the most enjoyable and refreshing books that I have read in a while. Adrian is such a unique character and some of his thoughts and ideas made me laugh out loud! I would love to read a follow up book so we could see how Adrian continues to grow into an adult. Great read and I would recommend it to anyone.
Jelar
Very funny book about a 13-year adolescent boy and his perspective on life and the world around him.
Yayrel
Always loved the Adrian Mole growing up saga, when I saw them on Amazon and I just had to get them!
OTANO
Hilarious if you're old enough (not 13 3/4) to appreciate it. Very funny. Adolescence is a self centered time of life and this delves into that in the funniest way.
Armin
childish.

This is hilarious! It captures the spirit of a certain kind of England better than any other work. Ageless...
Alsardin
I didn't care for it. I read these books to recommend to my teenage grandchildren.
One of the great children's books - granddaughter thrilled.
