still makes me laugh out loud,
This review is from: The Lost Diaries of Adrian Mole, 1999-2001 (Hardcover)
I know that these have been previously published in newspapers. I know that there are continuity errors. I know that some people are not happy about this. I do not care. I love Adrian Albert Mole in much the same way that he loves Pandora Braithwaite and always have. I have grown up with him and he has been a continuous source of joy for me for over twenty years of my life. Any additional material is always welcome.
Townsend's writing still has the ability to make me howl with laughter and I devour the books in a single sitting like a guilty pleasure.
Here Adrian is living in a council estate with his two sons, Glen and William whilst attempting to find a woman who can satisfy him intellectually and not wear blue eye liner. His parents still continue to be an eternal source of shame and his fledgeling novels Sty and Larry Topper languish in the rejected pile.
Plus ca change, plus la meme chose, and thank goodness for that.
