True Confessions of Adrian Albert Mole, Margaret Hilda

    I don t really get this book, and I m not sure what the author s point was in writing it Is it a collection of short stories A stand alone novel An intended sequel to the Mole books An effort by the author to introduce alternative characters series besides Mole An amalgamation of previously separated pieces thrust together into a semi workable book I have no idea The book

    Not quite as good as the others because it s not a full narrative, but composed of odds and ends which I guess were written for magazines and specials The Mole material is only about half the book, and then there are some other pieces but we decided to ditch those and go straight on to the next volume.

    sigh After waiting patiently for this next installment of everyone s favorite angsty, self inflated British teen to arrive from InterLibrary Loan, I was given roughly 80 pages of Adrian not all of it new to faithful readers double sigh Seriously, Sue Townsend I waited for THIS Yes, some of it was delightful but too brief and not at all fulfilling The rest of the novel is dev

    Considering the strength of the first two books, this is a real let down Having spent over two years intimately aquainted with the daily traumas of tne character, this collection of what is clearly some Mole related stuff , which was never written to be published in one volume, thrown together dissappoints somewhat Over 88 pages, we get the gist of Adrian s life from aged 16

    I m a little confused, to tell you the truth.Adrian Mole was a character I grew up with My high school boyfriend had the first two books, which I d read if he was being moody Needless to say, I grew quite close to young Adrian.I remember enjoying the books back then and, although I knew it wouldn t be the same experience as reading them as a teenager, I was looking forward to se

    Like many previous reviewers I did not get this book.I enjoyed the previous two books in the Adrian Mole series and found them to be page turners The different style of this book made it much harder to read and as such much less appealing I found it hard to get to the end.I am not sure of the point of the sections of diary s by Sue Townsend or Margaret Roberts I also felt the Adr

    A real disappointment compared to the first two books Adrian only updates his diary occasionally The entries are pretty random at times I really lost interest halfway through but I somehow managed to get through the whole book I wouldn t recommend it to Adrian fans who want to readafter the first two books Maybe the later Adrian books are better fingers crossed

    This is the 3rd book in the Adrian Mole series, about a hapless teen in the UK in the 80s He writes a series of letters and diaries that are often very funny This book wasn t The Adrian Mole part was very short, not book length at all, and really covered nothing new in Adrian s journey through life.I just got it from a Book Mooch, because I wanted to complete the series.The book al
