LoveReading View on The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged Thirteen and Three Quarters

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.
