Adrian Mole's first love, Pandora, has left him; a neighbor, Mr. Lucas, appears to be seducing his mother (and what does that mean for his father?); the BBC refuses to publish his poetry; and his dog swallowed the tree off the Christmas cake. "Why" indeed.

 

Review:

While it made me laugh out loud on occasion, this book was just not for me.  I know Adrian is supposed to be clueless but he’s also obnoxious and most of the time I wanted to reach through the pages to choke him.  His situation is not a good one, but I get the feeling he would be just as annoying even in the perfect home.  I suppose the humor is just not my style.

This unbiased review is based upon a complimentary copy provided by the publisher.
