superb

yet again, Sue Townsend produces another comic masterpiece involving her most enduring charactor Adrian Mole. As with the most recent books in this series, the mixing of humour and sadness is wonderfully done and this book is no exception. One of the best things about these books is that even though most of the situation our hapless hero finds himself in are totally unrealistic and yet, you find yourself believing in them and in Adrian himself... wouldn't we all love to know someone like him? lastly, a word on the reader- a great choice, Mark Hadfield read the book wonderfully.

Welcome reunion with an old friend

I've grown up with Adrian Mole and have, through the years, enjoyed the wonderful books by Sue Townsend. Adrian started off life as a weedy, pompous boy, and is now nearly 40. The voice of Adrian, sympathetically narrated in this book, made me feel warmer towards him than I have in previous books. That had little to do with the prostate troubles of the title, and more to do with the growing certainty that Adrian is more sinned against than sinning, and perpetually misunderstood. This book accompanied me on several trips down the M3 and back, and the miles flew by. This is a warm, and uplifting book, despite the title and Adrian deals with his travails with courage and gusto, and always does the next right thing. Bravo, Adrian!
