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.

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

I Very funny book. I enjoyed it very much. Would recommend for a good chuckle!
"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.
"still just as funny"
for anyone who grew up in the 80's this was one of THE books to read.
I loved grandma, she was funny and warm....and of course we see our family in them.
I have, and re-listened
"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.
Read the book watched the TV adaption and have listened to the audio book great bit of fun probably down load the others
Read this book 33 years ago , loved it. Just listened to it on a road trip with two 13year old boys. A trip down memory lane for me, loving the adult humour that I missed as a child. The two boys giggled all the way through . Such a classic
Great story, fantastically performed. I would highly recommend this to anyone whether they are familiar with the book or not.
