Seriously? The blurb on my edition compares this to Catcher in the Rye. I might compare it to Running with Scissors scrambled w/ Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Slice of dysfunctional life - funny if you can empathize? I felt, at most, schadenfreude. How did this get on my list? I don't like *any* of the books I can compare this to. TG it's short. ( )

sharp, funny and very well written. A very "of its time" novel ( )

Can't even get past the first page without laughing. The dog. The cherry brandy. What could possibly go wrong? ( )

I may have read this long ago...in any case, it was a pleasure to reacquaint myself with Adrian and his...ummmm, dilemmas...adventures...insights. I'm now 3 books into Adrian's story and plan to follow him into adulthood (maybe all the way to my age...gasp!) ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060533994, Paperback)

Teen angst has never been such serious business--or this much fun! In his secret diary, British teen Adrian Mole excruciatingly details every morsel of his turbulent adolescence. Mixed in with daily reports about the zit sprouting on his chin are heartrending passages about his parents' chaotic marriage. Adrian sees all, and he has something to say about everything. Delightfully self-centered, Adrian is the sort of teen who could rule a much better world--if only his crazy relatives and classmates would get out of his way. The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole is a riot, and--although written more than 15 years ago--there is something deliciously timeless about Adrian's angst.
