Good book but ONE thing that really got my goat was the fact of Adrian's birthday. At the beginning it is stated it is already 2007 but after April. Adrian's birthday (as we all know) is 2nd April 1967 and this is actually quite clearly stated in the back of the book in Adrian's biography.

Throughout the book he is saying is 39 and "almost 40" and when the story moves into 2008 - suddenly Adrian is celebrating his 40th birthday on 2nd April 2008? Can anyone else see the glaringly obvious mistake? In 2008 he would have been 41 not 40.

Very irritating and I am totally surprised that this was let through when being edited. Shame on Sue Townsend and the publishers for allowing such a mistake.

Okay a little over the top perhaps but its the PRINCIPLE.

lol ;o)
