Read full description of the books Adrian Mole: The Lost Years:Slightly confusing at times because although published afterwards it is set BEFORE The Weapons Of Mass Destruction - so some of the things described in the later book haven't happened yet. I also had the impression maybe someone hadn't proofread this terribly carefully as there were a few bits that didn't make much sense. A real howler was a description of Adrian's posh half-brother Brett's one-night stand as "Sharon" but then a couple of lines later as "Tracey" (or it might have been the other way around). I wondered if this was a sneaky homage to The Fat Slags.
I'm not convinced that Adrian's comments about the fradulent Sue Townsend pretending to be him work entirely either.
So many books which claim to be comic come complete with extracts from reviews describing them as a laugh a minute etc etc but barely have a joke in them. But with Adrian Mole I really do laugh just about every page. Fantastic.
Sue Townsend should bow to the inevitable and simply publish Adrian Mole as a daily blog! But so long as she resists the temptation to write those mediocre non-Mole books, and sticks to this format, I can't see myself ever getting tired of them.
