I loved this book so much!!! The diarist is a 13 3/4-yo boy named Adrian Mole and for anyone who likes to read blogs/diaries/journals of others, I'm pretty sure you would like it. I don't have kids or brothers so I don't know much about teenage boys so it was fun to get inside Adrian's mind. Poor kid is being raised by immature, irresponsible parents. He is the adult in the family. Very likeable kid.

Seems like I'm the last person to discover this book as there is an entire series of books, TV shows, stage plays, and the author has been dead almost six years now. ( )

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. ( )
