cute and funny and very very 80s and british. i appreciated the digs on thatcher and while the "14-year-old intellectual" thing is a bit on the nose, i enjoyed reading from the pov of a parentified child (as my therapist calls it) ( )

The diary entries of Adrian Mole, a naive teenager who believes himself to be an intellectual. I read this as a child and found it funny then and even funnier now that I understand Adrian's misinterpretations of the event in his life even better. The audiobook narrator, Nicholas Barnes, does a really great job with Adrian's voice. ( )

Laugh of loud funny and anyone of a certain age will remember the angst of being 13 and 3/4 and being ticked off and embarassed by your parent's behavior and seemingly lack of concern for your never ending ' crisis situations ' which are nothing more than the equivilant to a broken nail. Huge fan of Sue Townsend, sadly she is gone now. ( )
