Charles Pooter is alive and well and living in the 21st Century. The original 19th Century text and illustrations by George and Weedon Grossmith have been faithfully recreated in the present day, making for a thoroughly modern Pooter. Join Charles Pooter V as he struggles to get to grips with SkyPlus, Somerfield deliveries and the ever-troublesome Lupin. Devotees of the original Diary should instantly warm to the much-loved characters and awkward situations that made it so special and timeless in the first place, while the contemporary references make it feel very 'of the moment'. High praise from readers who purchased the book on Kindle emboldened Mr.Pooter to take his diary into print. Whilst modesty would normally prevent him from quoting their praise direct, he feels it only right and proper and decent to assist potential purchasers in making a decision by providing some extracts from Kindle readers' reviews. Apparently, the diary is "thoroughly enjoyable", "well-written and witty" and "beautifully done", not to say "completely marvellous". Whilst not a man to make many jokes, Charles is pleased that one reader feels the diary is "just as funny today, if not more so". Obviously, these are personal opinions, which other readers may not share, but Charles is pleased to pass them on in a spirit of openness and transparency. Those who feel uncertain about making a purchase might wish to follow Charles on Twitter (@charlespooter) to make his acquaintance more thoroughly. He regards his diary as "an antidote to celebrity guff", and feels that a record of an everyday, ordinary life offers as much - if not more - that is of interest as any journal written by a vulgar comedian or model. However, as he says, this is just his own opinion, but he feels it is one which is not without merit.
