The Lovereading4Kids comment

This book is a favourite of September 2009 Guest Editor Joanna Nadin:

Reading The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13¾ (at 13 and ¾) was the first time I picked up a book and thought, “Oh My God, that is me! That is how dull my life is.” It still makes me rock with laughter twenty-five years on. Without Adrian, Rachel Riley simply wouldn’t exist, and she certainly wouldn’t be studying politics A level.

The LoveReading Comment:
An ‘80s publishing sensation that has never gone out of fashion. It’s almost impossible not to laugh-out-loud at the brilliant dry humour that bubbles out of Sue Townsend’s writing. At thirteen years old, Adrian Mole has more than his fair share of problems - spots, ill-health, parents threatening to divorce, rejection of his poetry and much more - all recorded with brilliant humour in his diary.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. The funniest account ever of a boy's experiences and concerns at the onset of puberty.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
