LoveReading View on The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4

This 30th anniversary edition features Adrian Mole, the hapless teenager who provides an unabashed, pimples-and-all glimpse into adolescent life. This book is about his parents' marital troubles, the dog, his life as a tortured poet and 'misunderstood intellectual'. This is a book as relevant now to us all as it was when first published 30 years ago.  It's also laugh-out-loud funny and a truly compelling read.

The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4 Synopsis

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, his life as a tortured poet and 'misunderstood intellectual', Adrian's painfully honest diary is still hilarious and compelling reading thirty years after it first appeared.
