Review by meggyweg
Adrian is now 39, working in a bookstore, living in a converted pigsty with his second wife and their little girl, suffering from prostate trouble and as much of a loser as ever. The large cast of characters include the usual from the previous books (Pandora, Nigel) as well as some new ones. Adrian's son William is curiously almost entirely absent; he is mentioned in I think only one sentence. I understand the boy is living in Nigeria but I thought it was a bit odd that he and his father didn't at least email or call each other once in awhile.There's the usual stuff about the stupid government and topical problems with the economic collapse, and as usual Adrian does a lot of whining. Longtime fans of the Adrian Mole diaries will find this book worthy of a read, but I doubt a neophyte could get into it.
