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.
