    "An adult laughing-out-loud classic"
    What did you love best about Adrian Mole: The Wilderness Years?

    In order to understand why this book is so fantastic you need to understand that the third-book in this series is NOT on Audible. So this is actually book four.
    Adrian is now no longer a teen, but aged 24. He is no longer a victim of school-abuse since he now works in Oxford. You will get all you wanted as a teen and more in this fantastic but not-safe for work or Children audiobook. All the people you have grown to love d ors appear. It is as if a veil has been lifted regarding his whole family background. It is a cheer on all us weird people, you know those who never understand you nor your talent?

    This book is for: The dreamers, the wannabe's the nerds and those who dare laugh at any of this categories. This will lift you up higher than before!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Adrian Mole: The Wilderness Years?

    When Adrian got a note in the end.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Adrian after an episode in Soho(London) He could have turned hysterical, but did not.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes: It has made me laugh and look at life( I wrote laugh instead of life furst, which says it all.) Very funny, yet deeper than most youth fiction.


    Any additional comments?

    Be aware: R-rated language does occur.

    Shameless book addict whose life was made immeasurably happier when I discovered audiobooks made housework tolerable and long drives a joy.

    "Still funny, but prolonged adolescence"

    Adrian is older, but definitely not any wiser. His powers of unintended self-sabotage are almost magical. While the book is very funny, one would expect Adrian to have matured somewhat by now. He loses his girlfriend, his job, and his apartment. And he's just getting warmed up! He could give Eeyore lessons in bad luck. But he has marvelous powers of resilience, and he gets back up and moves onward. Adrian is a man now, and eventually some of the losses he faces are more painful and lasting than the usual teenage frustrations. Also, as Adrian is considerably older, his poetry takes on a more adult tone. I was listening to this at work and started blushing!

    While this was enjoyable, it just wasn't as laugh-out-loud funny as the first two books. That said, I'll still be getting the next in the series.
