Adrian Mole has entered early middle age and is now 'the same age as Jesus was when he died' (33). Father to the grammatically challenged Glenn, and William, who takes a 'Big Boy Arouser' condom to nursery school as his innocent contribution to a hot air balloon project, Adrian is a single parent who has an on/off relationship with his housing officer, Pamela Pigg. Will she help him to move from the notorious Gaitskell estate before William joins the Mad Frankie Fraser fan club?

In the meantime, Adrian continues to be scandalised by his irresponsible parents who are conducting a matrimonial square-dance with the Braithwaites - the parents of the beautiful but unobtainable Pandora, who is ruthlessly pursuing her ambition to be New Labour's first woman PM - and to confide in his diary.

His current worries include: indestructible head-lice; his raging jealousy when his accomplished half-brother Brett arrives on his doorstep; moral decline in The Archers; his desperate attachment to two therapists; his mild addiction to Starburst (formerly Opal Fruits); a small earthquake in Leicester; and, perhaps most significantly, the dawn of a new millennium.

Listener Opinions

    " I always enjoy Adrian Mole! The entire series is fabulous! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 2/11/2014

    " I love Sue Townsend. Adrian Mole is getting a bit stale in his 30s, but so am I. If you're a lover of Adrian, you'll enjoy this easy read. I think I can blame my recent rash of neurosis on reading this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Grainger | 2/9/2014

    " The Lost Diaries are a good addition to the Adrian Mole series. I have to say that there were parts where I laughed out loud but there were parts that I thought were a little stale. It was difficult for anything of substance to happen to Adrian as this book is ultimately a filler and as we know Adrian has now married again. However as with all the Adrian Mole series I really enjoyed this, on one page you think that Adrian needs some luck in the next you are berating him yourself. A great read for any Mole fans! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Jokl | 1/30/2014

    " Mole, too devoted to his kids to find a job. An example to us all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 1/26/2014

    " Stole this book from Rob's shelves (with his permission)- he in turn had discovered it on his desk one day. Its true owner remains a mystery! It's the literary equivalent of a collection of previously published journal articles, but funnier. Didn't mind its cobbled together nature as I am a bit A Mole fan, having binge read the whole of the rest of the series a couple of years ago. The book served me well on a long train journey whilst visiting this week. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 1/17/2014

    " The first part was familiar, but the ending was new to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 1/16/2014

    " This was a very quick read, some funny bits, but not brilliant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/8/2014

    " Though this is only the third book I've read in the series, I can see that Sue Townsend is running out of ideas for Adrian. Still, I am looking forward to reading about Adrian's earlier adventures (So many to catch up on!) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Derek | 1/5/2014

    " It's worth reading just for his stoneage book... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vikki | 12/22/2013

    " Not as funny as her early Adrian Mole but it has its amusing points and a good storyline. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Redfox5 | 12/17/2013

    " Was really good to read Adrian Mole again. Funny story which was a quick light read :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Isobel | 12/13/2013

    " About the same as the others. No great work of literature but amusing and easy to read. If you've read the others, it fills in the gaps "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rod | 11/13/2013

    " Adrian Mole's exploits take a decidedly messy (or even messier) turn as he wades into his thrities, but the humor remains. There's no doubt that I'll finish the series (and read any more forthcoming). On to A.M. and the Weapons of Mass Destruction...Long live Adrian Mole! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 11/11/2013

    " Although nothing could ever be as funny as Adrian's early, teenaged offerings, this was full of humour, sly digs and oddly touching moments. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 10/30/2013

    " I love the Adrian Mole books, and have enjoyed all I have read. That being said, this one wasn't quite up to the other books in the series. It did make me smile in some parts, but it seemed a lot darker and not quite as wacky I guess. Favorite characters in this book has gotta be Glenn Bott-Mole. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 12/14/2012

    " Good book, just not the best in the series. It does seem almost as if it was written as an afterthought to be honest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 11/8/2012

    " I laughed out loud reading this on the train, nothing more needs to be said! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sadie-jane -sj | 11/4/2012

    " so so til he gets to the bit about a certain author benefiting fron his life story. him n ms pigg get a tad old.. didn't make a difference whether I read this before prostrate yrs or not "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Huey | 7/3/2012

    " gotta say my least fav book, a tad confusing for me, but nonetheless very funny and relaxing book to read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 5/1/2012

    " Not as good as the earlier ones, or maybe that's because both Adrian and I were younger and less cynical. He's still a pompous twit, though and there are a few laughs to be had. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jake B | 3/13/2012

    " Decent, but definetly the weakest of the books. Filler if anything. Still humourous in places though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 2/16/2012

    " Not the best Adrian Mole I thought - not too many out-laughs but it was OK. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 uniquechicgeek | 1/16/2012

    " Relaxed and witty read about Adrian's exploits at the turn of the millennium. Sue Townsend's writing is as sharply satirical as ever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dom | 11/18/2011

    " hahaha...I laugh...oh how I laughed "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wsclai | 9/29/2011

    " Like other A. Mole's diary, it is really a fun to read. Glenn and William are equally interesting characters. Can't wait to read "The Prostate Years". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beanbox | 3/9/2011

    " Was ok. Not as good as the others though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Paddy | 3/3/2011

    " Not funny. At all. Stick w/ the original. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 2/24/2011

    " I really wish more nice things would happen to Adrian Mole. I think he deserves it. It's as if Sue Townsend lies awake at night thinking of new ways to make Adrian miserable. I suppose if he were happy, it wouldn't make much of a book, but I'm quite tired of the 'wingeing.' "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 1/23/2011

    " Adrian feels like an old friend. A wacky one, but aren't they the best? :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 1/21/2011

    " This is the Adrian Mole book about which I'm most ambivalent. It's as funny as you'd expect...but it pushes some story elements to outrageous levels that don't really suit our dear Mr. Mole.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 12/11/2010

    " Good but not the best in an excellent series "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 9/26/2010

    " I still re-read the earlier adrian mole books and they always make me laugh. This wasn't as entertaining - not as funny when an oblivious character is 30+ instead of a hapless teenager.
    Pandora is still much the same - seems only natural she'd become a Labor MP now that I think of it.
    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kirsty (overflowing library) | 9/19/2010

    " Adrian is creepy and whingy by this point - not worth the time of day "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gems | 8/8/2010

    " Yep, enjoyed this one too, bought back memories of the late 90s, easier to relate to than the 80s politics of the previous diaries, as I was more aware myself of these times. Funny and readable, liked it, 3 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jake | 7/6/2010

    " Hilarious and just sublime. I love Sue Townsend. Adrian Mole is a hero. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 6/7/2010

    " Hilarious! Though I don't get the reference to some British politicians and celebrities. I still loved it though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Iva | 3/27/2010

    " Napokon... Adrian je i dalje urnebesan. "
