Adrian Mole is 34 and three quarters, almost officially middle-aged, when Mr. Blair tells Parliament that Weapons of Mass Destruction can be deployed in 45 minutes and can reach Cyprus. Adrian is worried that he might not get a refund on his holiday. But that's not all that is bothering him. There's his odd girlfriend Marigold who has become distressingly New Age. And his son Glenn who is in Deepcut Barracks. Would Mr. Blair have been quite so keen if it had been his son manning a roadblock?

I had read the early Adrian Mole books some time ago and had selected this audio book as a light entertaining listen. Initially, I was unsure of whether I was going to like it - Adrian is no longer the gormless teenager but an adult with plenty of life-history behind him. For a while, the 'diary of a nobody' mix of humour and bathos was a bit hard going. However, it soon worked its charm on me and I ended up rooting for him. An added bonus was the interview with Sue Townsend at the end which was both interesting and provided many 'aha' moments with regard to elements of the plot of the book.
The narrator did an excellent job and the book lends itself to this format.

Just as good as I remember

This book took me back to the time I read and then watched the original Adrian Mole books/TV programmes.... Excellent listen for the summer holidays. but please be careful, I laughed out loud at some of the antics, so be warned don't listen anywhere that if you laugh out loud you'll get into trouble.

Farewell, my childhood friend!

I read the Secret Diary when I was 16, and the have kept up with all the subsequent publications, (I am 33) I must say, I am a little sad when Taunsand announced that this would be the last. I have always found the A.M diaries charming and delightful, but this is the first time I encounter Adrian in Audiobook medium. The rendition of the narrator was fantastic, especially the impression of Marygold. I hereby have choice but to give it 5 of 5 before saying "Goodbye, Adrian..."

Smart, Timely, Superb

"Adrian Mole and the Weapons of Mass Destruction" is my first ever Adrian Mole book. I'm disappointed only that Audible.com only offers one of these, I'd love to download more Mole! The subject matter is both personal and political, and it's interesting to see how Adrian's consciousness plays much like that of the U.S., where a majority believed our administration's reasons for going into Iraq and are now disillusioned. Funny yet touching. The narrator is superb, his vocal characterizations for each of Adrian's friends, family members and lovers are distinct so it is easy to follow the story. And I will never forget this: A swan can break a man's arm, you know.
