A Very Amusing Update, 16 May 2012
Our 21st century diarist, Mr. Charles Pooter, is the great, great-grandson of the Victorian gentleman. Times have changed and technology has catapulted us into a brave new world, but some things have stayed remarkably the same. The headaches associated with home-ownership, parenting, jobs and friendships are all very amusingly dealt with by the self-conscious and rather inflated Pooter. Well written and witty, this was a very enjoyable read. As a Californian, I was particularly amused by the internet psychic who is probably one of my neighbours.
