Thoroughly Enjoyable, 4 Sept. 2012
I purchased Mr Pooter's diary after enjoying his daily musings on twitter, and was not disappointed. I was not previously aware of the original, as i am not that "well read", but this did not matter as i was able to enjoy it without cross referring, which may have made me "cross" ha ha....that was a joke.
Mr Pooter is an extremely likeable man who generally follows a structured path through life, enjoying the finer things in life, like Cava, bran flakes and mini pizzas. He is well supported (most of the time) by the lovely Carrie (Mrs Pooter), his friends (Gowing & Cummings) and his son (Lupin), who i have to say irritated me slightly.
The diary (a bumper 14 months long) gives an enjoyable insight in to his daily encounters with his family, friends, and the honourable Barry Perkupp amongst others. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the diary and would recommend it to anybody.
I am already encouraging Mr Pooter to write a follow up. I suggest you do so via Twitter, his name is @charlespooter
