Summary

Meet Adrian Mole, a hapless teenager providing an unabashed, pimples-and-all glimpse into adolescent life. Writing candidly about his parents' marital troubles, the dog, and his life as a tortured poet and 'misunderstood intellectual', Adrian's painfully honest diary is still hilarious and compelling reading thirty years after it first appeared.

Critic reviews

"We laugh both at Mole and with him. A wonderful comic read, that, like all the best comedy, says something rather meaningful." ( Heat)

The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4

Growing up, this was one of my favourite books of the eighties and Nicholas Barnes' narration takes it to a new level. Given Mole's naive teenage canter through the early part of that decade is just sublime to hear.

I'm planning to buy the whole series on Audible. Sue Townsend: you're hugely missed.

Always a classic

Took a few chapters to get used to the voice which was pretty flat. I suppose the narrator was deliberately monotone because he was acting the part of a 13 year old. The humour was brilliant and laugh out loud in parts. Nicholas Barnes really comes into his own in the next book in the series but this one is still a classics will listen to again.
