it was amazing

Now this story is probably one of the funniest I’ve read so far. Written by Sue Townsend it hits the country with its realism and the silliness of Adrian Mole himself.
It starts with his New Year to-do list which is an absolute killer all by itself. And then the reader slowly reads through the days of Adrian’s life and laughs him or herself silly just because of his weird ways of explaining things to himself.
Finally falls in love with a girl from his class and goes through the painful experience of watching her switch boyfriends.
Finally Pandora decides to go out with Adrian and the get on pretty well.
So the story goes on again, and the next stop is when Pandora goes to Tunisia for the holiday. Adrian is devastated and digested when Pandora gives all her money to a beggar instead of buying him a present.
After a week of reverse-charge calls to England from Pandora Adrian goes to the train station to meet her, but, gets onto the wrong platform.
Soon enough after that Adrian decides to go to Scotland with his mum and her lover Mr. Lucas. Finds it really boring and complains all the time.
When he comes back to England he goes back to school again. And with that, back to all the trouble.
So if you’re reading my review to decide whether to buy this book, my advice is to get it and not regret it.
