Description

For over thirty years, after the publication of her instant and iconic bestseller The Secret Diaries of Adrian Mole Aged 13 ¾ in 1982, she made us weep with laughter and pricked the nation's conscience.

Upon my second reading of this book, I was pleased that I was not any less enchanted by Adrian as when I first became acquainted with him during my freshman year of college.The views highlighted then were so close to home that I was inevitably enthralled - it's good to know your're not the only one with problems - and now I can just look back and see it even more clearly!

Adrian's half-sister, Rosie Germaine Mole (after feminist Germaine Greer), grows up to be rebellious and street-smart, in contrast to Adrian. I don't think there is any need for a synopsis from me, as I suspect most potential readers of this book are much like myself in having read it in their youth and looking to pick it up again for nostalgia's sake. Although aspects of the books have obviously dated a little, most of it remains refreshingly relevant. But Adrian is about to discover that extraordinary and wonderful things may blossom even in the wilderness .At Books2Door, we believe that reading is a fundamental skill that every child should have to help improve their vocabulary, grammar, and critical thinking skills. It's also interesting as a look at the '80s, as I didn't realise at first that they were written in the '80s as opposed to looking back at them.

Much like I suspect the Harry Potter or Twilight books more recently were, Adrian Mole was read by most of my peer group so we could discuss the bits we liked the most, the observations, the funny lines, measuring our things (for those of us that had them) and generally breathe even more life into a character that was so well drawn by Ms Townsend.
