    1 thought on “The Lost Diaries of Adrian Mole, 1999-2001

    1. I did it again I walked smack into the middle of a series And I have only myself to blame Had I been careful in examining this book, I would have noticed it s part of a series I would also have noted its epistolary format, another feature that ordinarily gives me pause However, I did not notice these things, and even once I did, I read this book anyway Now I have to write this review me, a neophyte to the Adrian Mole saga, a doubter of epistolary works This can only end in tears.Adrian Mole, at [...]

    2. This book s origins as a series of newspaper columns are all too evident when you read it not only do plot lines commence abruptly and disappear quickly, but it s obviously written for a very casual reader I found it quite irritating as a longterm Mole fan, because the vast majority of the plotlines were recycled from previous books, and there were quite a few continuity errors with other books in the canon Normally I d say one for die hard fans only, but I suspect they d actually be the ones wh [...]

    3. I grew up reading the Adrian Mole diaries and remember them being very funny It has been some years since I looked at them and so when I found this in the library I was eager to read it What I have learnt is that what was funny in my late teens is no where near as funny in my 30 s I am not sure if this is because the style is slightly different in that it mentions world events quite frequently compared to the original books This book was originally serialised in a British newspaper or my sense o [...]

    4. This is the first book in the series where I felt Sue Townsend really couldn t be bothered to write any about Adrian Mole It seems to be written differently not as much about his life and the life of those around him, but focussing on his commentary of all the world events that were happening around this time I know she s always done that but it seemed like that s all that was happening in this one I know it was written after the Weapons of Mass Destruction, and maybe that s why it reads like [...]

    5. This is another one of the weaker Mole books, and I think it boils down to the fact that it s actually a collection of short columns appearing in the newspaper That becomes increasingly obvious when there are multiple plot lines that come and go within 3 pages, as well as some very heavy handed lines dropped in to explain to unfamiliar people exactly who the characters are and what the situation and context is Despite the writing style, though, the plot in this is fairly okay It doesn t live up [...]

    6. After 9 11 Adrian got arrested and his diaries were lost But here we learn finally what happened before the Weapons of Mass destruction Funny but not as funny as one would have hoped The joke is thinning But Pandora is still around He truly is a grown up Adrian Not so bad 7 10

    7. Now Adrian has attained the age of 32, but is his usual neurotic self.These diaries were formerly confiscated by the police when Adrian was apparently suspected of being a terrorist, but now they have been returned to him.Adrian s two boys, William and Glenn, are 7 and 13, respectively William has worked out on the computer at nursery school that it would take Father Christmas 15 trillion hours to visit every child in the world Should Adrian continue the charade that the toys are made in Greenla [...]

    9. Full disclosure, I have not read the entire series yet, AND it is unlikely if I will continue to do so, but there remains a slim chance that I might, maybe give it a year, or if I fall desperately short of my 2012 Books to Read Target I think I skipped a few books between the first one and this one Anyway, on with the reviewToo much of the same thing The first book was really good because it felt fresh and original But this time around, it feels like Adrian has not learned at all It does not loo [...]

    10. The Adrian Mole series is my favourite book series ever Saying that, this is definitely the weakest offering The font is very large, probably to bulk it out to a similar length to the other Adrian Mole books The book is disjointed and repetitive however, one can accredit this so the fact that the entries were initally published in a newspaper and were later compiled and published in this form I understood this when I was reading it and am willing to let Susan Townsend off for this My main issue [...]

    11. I really enjoyed this and am now keen to read the rest of the series I m pretty sure I read an early Adrian Mole book as a teenager and didn t really get it, but maybe back then I was just baffled by the political references This book made me giggle out loud on quite a few occasions and it s a really easy, laid back read I liked the fact that I could just pick it up, read a couple of diary entries then put it down again It perfect if you are too busy to sit down and read for very long After read [...]

    12. I call myself a huge Adrian Mole fan and I didn t even know this book existed, finding it by happy chance in the library.Adrian Mole he s older than me but I ve grown up with him sharing his dreams, aspirations, obsessions and realities In this book Adrian is in his thirties, living alone with his two sons from two women he didn t love as ardently as the now politically successful Pandora.Adrian is still writing, still hoping his literary genius will be acknowledged, plodding on in a life which [...]

    13. Brief Description Think of this book as a male version of Bridget Jones s Diary only British and less funny This is the eighth book in a series, and, in this particular outing, Mr Mole is a middle aged single parent dealing with dating, children, and housing issues.My Thoughts I read the first few books of this series The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3 4 and The Growing Pains of Adrian Mole years ago and remember them as being funny Either the series hasn t aged well or I haven t as I wa [...]

    14. Although this recent addition to the Adrian Mole oeuvre is not quite as epic as The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole or The Growing Pains of Adrian Mole the first two in the series, written when Adrian was a pimply teenager , it is still pretty damn entertaining Reading this one, I was struck by what a pill Adrian the misunderstood intellectual is now an unemployed single father, a struggling novelist, an aggrieved political constituent, a cranky son, and a reluctant dater still is He is unpleasant t [...]

    15. The Adrian Mole saga is one of the great comic series I didn t know about this latest book in the series or I probably would have bought it at the regular price Instead I had the delight of finding it on a remainder table at Chapters for 6.99 It s a pretty slim volume at 24 the regular price and just right at 6.99 Originally published serially in bolshie rag The Guardian, the book has a improvised character than earlier diaries It is, as a result, less funny and involved with actual events of [...]

    16. I can never resist a Mole bookis one is set in between Cappuccino Years and Weapons of Mass Destruction, and is jolly funny as always a few quibbles I was never very convinced with the Braithwaite Mole parents getting together and I would have liked Nigel and Pandora Also, this volume doesn t have what some of the others do a serious episode I m thinking of, in previous books, George telling Pauline about Doreen s pregnancy, Queenie s death, Robbie s death, Rosie s termination, those very movi [...]

    17. These are the lost diaries of Adrian Mole, seized in a dawn raid by the police under suspicion of terrorism In this volume yet again he is lusting after Pandora but picks up with someone a little deranged called Pamela Pigg His parents get back together and leave their other respective partners ie Pandora s parents Adrian feels a pang of guilt about his half brother and tracks him down with the disastrous consequence of him staying for a while.Meanwhile he is trying to cope with day to day livin [...]

    18. This has got to be one of the funniest books I have ever read I got the first one The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3 4 out the library and I liked it so I decided to give this a go too Twenty years on from the first book, Adrian is a single father living in a council housewith his sone Glenn 13 and William 7 He has a sort of relationship with his housing officer Pamela Pigg I just love the way the author can take an everyday situation and make it hilarious My favourite part was when Adria [...]

    19. Good Reads top review is by some Canadian who had never previously encountered Adrian Mole An extraordinary outburst of petulance.Well, thanks a bunch, GoodReads How is that in anyway useful to the community, especially to British 40 50somethings who grew up with Adrian Mole, and understand instinctively the cultural references which are not about CanadaSometimes, good manners are simply about humbly admitting this isn t for me and walking quietly away, rather than exercising pride and self appo [...]

    20. It s not the best Adrian Mole book, but even the worst Mole books are still good It s slightly disjointed, but I put this down to the fact that it was first serialised in a newspaper before being collected and published as a volume But this doesn t stop it being a funny read, even if slightly implausible Adrian goes from being an offal chef in London to an unemployed single father in Leicester why wouldn t Sharon and JoJo take their children away from the poverty they re living in Anything that [...]

    21. Another entertaining trip to Ashby de la Zouch with Adrian as a flustered father of two Of specific note is an incredibly odd section two thirds in which acknowledges the TV adaptation of Adrian Mole The Cappuccino Years and the existence of Townsend as a failed writer Sadly this peters out quickly before offering any real insight The mentions of the late Geoffrey Perkins made me choke up a little although even Mole isn t too stupid to pass up a TV adaptation just because they ve mistakenly assu [...]

    22. The Lost Diaries are a good addition to the Adrian Mole series I have to say that there were parts where I laughed out loud but there were parts that I thought were a little stale It was difficult for anything of substance to happen to Adrian as this book is ultimately a filler and as we know Adrian has now married again However as with all the Adrian Mole series I really enjoyed this, on one page you think that Adrian needs some luck in the next you are berating him yourself A great read for an [...]

    23. Divertente, ma niente di che, letto di corsa perch cronologicamente veniva prima di Weapons of arm destruction , peccato per che l introduzione raccontava in breve tutto quello che stavo leggendo nel libro seguente, appunto Adrian Mole, padre single di un bambino di 3 anni e di un adolescente di 14, si muove nell Inghilterra della guerra contro Osama Bin Laden, tra Pandora che fa carriera nel governo e i genitori che continuano a risposarsi Ci sono chicche indimenticabili, tra cui la presenza de [...]

    24. I ve been a Mole ite since I discovered Adrian s first diary in the early 80 s Unfortunately, the antics that were funny in his teen years are losing some steam now that Adrian is approaching 40 with two young boys to raise His parents divorce and remarry at least once a decade and, again, Adrian has gotten mixed up with an elderly neighbor that requires his care Of course, for all its flaws, I still enjoy the tone of Adrian s voice and I would say I chucked not laughed throughout A must read fo [...]

    25. Oh Adrian, where would we be without your endless pretentious waffle Some funny moments in this one, but I could do without the joke within a joke references to Sue Townsend stealing Adrian s life and pretending it s fiction Remember how nauseating it was in Ocean s Whatever can t remember which one it was I erased it from my mind as soon as I left the cinema when Julia Roberts played Julia Roberts Bletch Not funny, or clever Luckily this instalment redeems itself, and just about manages to be b [...]

    26. Stole this book from Rob s shelves with his permission he in turn had discovered it on his desk one day Its true owner remains a mystery It s the literary equivalent of a collection of previously published journal articles, but funnier Didn t mind its cobbled together nature as I am a bit A Mole fan, having binge read the whole of the rest of the series a couple of years ago The book served me well on a long train journey whilst visiting this week.

    27. I loved the first Adrian Mole book when I was a kid and was surprised to find this at Heathrow while I was waiting for my connecting flight Adrian is all grown up as a single father with two kids Apparently, there s been a dozen editions since the first Who would have known Adrian s still got that wonderful point of view I used to to think he was a bit Holden Caulfield, but now, perhaps as an neurotic hypochondriac adult, he sounds a bit David Sedaris.

    28. This one will never fully make sense It was originally written as a series of shorts for The Guardian So the storylines go up and down and don t always make sense Published as the seventh, it chronilogically fits as the sixth, just There are massive continuity errors that make this like an entirely different story to what was in Weapons of Mass destruction I think it s meant as a joke, shedding a bit of light on what Adrian and his boys did after the conclusion of Cappuccino years.

    29. Adrian is now a family man well a single parent , but still longs for a woman to share to take over all the dirty jobs so he can write his hopeless novels His family are as hopeless as ever and his kids share some of his eccentiricties but thankfully for them not all.Another great read and you really do end up rooting for Adrian to get some good fortune.

    30. Throughout all the entertainment that the Adrian Mole series has given me, I m still ambivalent about it.This novel, apparently is the last installment and in comparison to the preceding book about Adrian s pathetic life in his 30s, is really good.It s funny and relaxing sarcastic and reminds you of a lot of current events Mostly Adrian reminds me of myself I guess only because of that sentimental attachment I gave this book 4 stars.
