Publisher's Summary

Adrian Mole is an adult. At least that's what it says on his passport. But living at home, clinging to his threadbare cuddly rabbit 'Pinky', working as a paper pusher for the DoE and pining for the love of his life, Pandora, has proved to him that adulthood isn't quite what he expected. Still, without the dilemmas of modern life what would an intellectual poet have to write about…

This is not a whole book...

Many chapters missing and suddenly after 2h you hear a completely separate story/diary of Sue Townsend read by herself, and then some other random story with new random characters not related to the previous ones at all! I am very disappointed at this and I wish there was another audiobook on audible with the full version of this book that I could purchase

Felt disjointed and incomplete - was this a full version of the book?

I felt this audio book jumped around and didn't make much sense. Like sections had been missed out. It also felt quite short and there was a long section at the end about the authors holiday which I found a bit strange and not especially entertaining. I wouldn't bother listening to this again. Shame because I really enjoyed the other Adrian mole books. Not sure whether this is just the book itself or the way it has been made into audio version.

What a load rubbish.

The first part was good. Typical Adrian Mole. The rest was some frightfully dull dirge of story about some wretched holiday the author went on. I had to stop it. I didn’t buy this for a self indulgent recounting of Townsend’s holiday. I purchased this to hear of the tales of Adrian Mole. Codswallop!

Disappointed

This book doesn't live up to expectations as I really enjoyed the first two books in the series. The only saving grace is the narrator of Adrian.

Disappointed

Ends very abruptly. Contains only half an Adrian Mole story, the rest are separate stories...

3 Short Stories

The Adrian Mole story is quite short & ends abruptly. Then there is a Diary from Sue Townsend & then Maggie Thatchers schooldays. All very good but I think the cover & description ought to make this clear.

Can't wait to delete it from my player.

The 'Adrian Mole' part was alright, but then quite unexpectedly when it ended, this woman (Ms Townsend, presumably?) bizarrely goes into the most boring (self-indulgent?) monologue about the unlikely events that happened to her on a holiday in Spain, during which she repeatedly (at LEAST a thousand times!) referred to the erstwhile currency as pesAYtas, and apparently encountered every eccentric and pervert in that country: Then, just as I was beginning to lose the will to live, she suddenly switches on a 'little girl' voice and becomes a young Margaret Hilda Thatcher growing up in Grantham). I didn't hear the end of it, and deleting it is at the top of my today's TO DO list!!
