The Growing Pains Of Adrian Mole

Taking over straight from 'The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole', book number two of the highly successful series doesn't disappoint in audiobook form. In fact, it's brilliant and I have already purchased #3.

Nicholas Barnes is a sublime narrator and really brings Mole to life.

Every Bit As Good As The First Installment!

This, the second book in the Adrian Mole series of books superbly written by Sue Townsend, is every bit as funny and absorbing as the first. Again, I read this many years ago when I too was a teenager, and it brings back so many fond and awkward memories.

Adrian, is a character you can't help feeling sympathy for, even though at times you can't help but feel he brings a lot of his woes upon himself. But at heart, he is a decent and kind-hearted teenager, trying to find himself in this big world.

Narration by Nicholas Barnes was very good and helped to make this audio experience a pleasant one.

I look forward to the next book in the series.
