Sunday July 18th. My father announced at breakfast that he is going to have a vasectomy. I pushed my sausages away untouched....

In this second instalment of teenager Adrian Mole's diaries, the Mole family is in crisis and the country is beating the drum of war. While his parents have reconciled after both embarked on disastrous affairs, Adrian is shocked to learn of his mother's pregnancy. And even though at the mercy of his rampant hormones and the fickle whims of the divine Pandora, a victim of a broken home and his own tortured (though unrecognised) genius, Adrian continues valiantly to chronicle the pains and pleasures of a misspent adolescence.

    " The book of TABOO back in my teenage years. I actullay hide this book when I was reading this back then...it contained rude words! It was the girls secret look into a boys daily life. Funny too :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mica | 1/20/2014

    " I thought this book was hilarious. I found myself laughing out loud -- something I do NOT usually do. I've tried to read the sequels and found them lacking, but I thought this one was terrific. Very entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jyoderdc | 1/17/2014

    " Hilarious. Don't plan on going to bed on time if you pick up this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 1/12/2014

    " I don't remember this so well really, and have even forgotten which part made me laugh so hard that I peed in my pants. It could be that the peeing was pretty much continuous. I know the laughter was. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/10/2014

    " Everyone in England asked if I'd read these whenever Cringe came up, and I wish I hadn't waited so long. I have to read the rest now, I loved this. Thank you, Zan! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 12/5/2013

    " both novels very funny and a great read the antics that the characters get up to are very funny yet show the reader there is always a serious side "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 5/29/2013

    " I read these booka as a kid and they always cracked me up. Made me glad my life was much more stable and I was not so neurotic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 5/9/2013

    " great book for teens. nice little insight "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 4/28/2013

    " This probably isn't a book I would normally choose. I occasionally became frustrated with the character of Adrian, but these are his diaries so of course they're self-absorbed. I thought it was funny how unaware he was of the normal occurrences during the teenage years. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 4/18/2013

    " I found this mildly amusing -- good, light reading on Metro, but ultimately it wasn't funny enough to recommend to others. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alison | 4/10/2013

    " I read this when I was a teenager and I remember thinking it was hysterically funny. Not so much now, although it was readable and there were some amusing parts. I think I just didn't like that there wasn't a plot arc; the book just had one diary entry after another and it ended rather abruptly. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lord Beardsley | 3/11/2013

    " I didn't find this book that interesting, but it was funny in parts. I've just read a lot like it already... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chelsea | 12/24/2012

    " Utterly hilarious and fairly inappropriate, not to mention delightfully British. I was especially fond of the glossary he kindly put in the back, explaining all those mysterious British words. And, of course, Adrian's fixation on his *ahem* size. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lafcadio | 10/14/2012

    " The best part about this book is what the reader understands that Adrian just has no clue about. He'll talk about something he clearly misunderstands, and it makes it all the funnier. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ian Martin | 9/29/2012

    " Overall I liked the first tow books in this series. It takes a while to get into the diary entry style to advance the story, but it is very funny. I am not sure if I will continue with the rest of the books, but I enjoyed this edition. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daisy | 9/3/2012

    " A sort of Bridget Jones's Diary for the younger set, it takes place in late 80s London and is at times hysterically funny and at times pitiful. Good for a long plane ride, but not something you'll find yourself reading again and again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine Mustread | 8/23/2012

    " Funny journal entries of a would-be-lover and member of a dysfunctional family. "
