Dieses Buch wurde aus dem Englischen übersetzt, wobei leider viel verändert werden musste, was nicht übersetzbar war (Anagramme). Daher empfehle ich das Buch, wenn überhaupt, im englischen Original zu lesen.
Originaltitel: "The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass"
"The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass, Aged 37 3/4" is the first in the "Sacred Diary" series, and sometimes I nearly fell over laughing reading it.

10/10, I loved it.
You HAVE to buy this book!
