Friday January 2nd. I felt rotten today. It's my mother's fault for singing My Way at two o clock in the morning at the top of the stairs. Just my luck to have a mother like her. There is a chance my parents could be alcoholics. Next year I could be in a children's home...

Meet Adrian Mole, a hapless teenager providing an unabashed, pimples-and-all glimpse into adolescent life. Writing candidly about his parents' marital troubles, the dog, and his life as a tortured poet and misunderstood intellectual, Adrian's painfully honest diary is a hilarious and compelling listen.

    " My mum had read this as a kid and said she had enjoyed it so she got me to read it too . I liked this book , it had a strong sense of humor which is my favourite category of book , it also was written in a diary style which i really enjoy . It used simple grammar so it was really easy to read and follow . It was like you were in the head of an adolescent boy . The only thing I did nto enjoy the book was the beggining , I was not gripped to read it , but fortuneately i pushed myself to complete the story. I would reccomend this book for children aged 10-15 as it is rather simple language and as it is written in the perspective of a 13 year old boy , it would be easier for younger teens to connect with . This ticks off a book written before you were born on my bingo board . "

    " I loved this back in '82 and I can see why. It's still funny, but doesn't make the leap to being a book I want to keep and reread as an adult (unlike other books I loved in my childhood such as those by Edith Nesbit and Arthur Ransome.) That said, it's really a 3.5 star book -- a little above average. I'd still recommend it to 14- to 15-year-olds (I think it might seem a little naive to today's older teenagers), although the setting further limits the appeal. Unless you know a bit about early 80s Britain, culturally and politically, a fair bit is going to pass you by. "

    " I couldn't relate to this guy, but still he made some sense in a weird way only teenagers could. Maybe I was like him. Who knows? "
