Publisher's Summary

Adrian Mole is an adult. At least that's what it says on his passport. But living at home, clinging to his threadbare cuddly rabbit 'Pinky', working as a paper pusher for the DoE and pining for the love of his life, Pandora, has proved to him that adulthood isn't quite what he expected. Still, without the dilemmas of modern life what would an intellectual poet have to write about…

    "Felt disjointed and incomplete - was this a full version of the book?"

    I felt this audio book jumped around and didn't make much sense. Like sections had been missed out. It also felt quite short and there was a long section at the end about the authors holiday which I found a bit strange and not especially entertaining. I wouldn't bother listening to this again. Shame because I really enjoyed the other Adrian mole books. Not sure whether this is just the book itself or the way it has been made into audio version.

    "The True Confessions Of ..."

    The main issue concerning this hybrid collection of Adrian Mole, Sue Townsend and Margaret Hilda Roberts diaries is that it's a bit of an odd combo. I personally loved the Mole chapters, although the timeline jumped around a little. Townsend's own diaries were excellent and laugh out loud funny in places. As for the 'Young Mrs Thatcher' chapters, well, a clever satires, but about as subtle as a sledgehammer. I would have liked to see more Mole and less 1980s political comment if I'm honest.

    I would have preferred to have heard Nicholas Barnes as Mole; Anna Bentinck and Harriet Carmichael were both fabulous narrators though.

    "Not all devoted to Adrian Mole!"

    Having enjoyed the first two installments of Adrian Mole, this, the third in the series left me disappointed as it is not entirely devoted to the main character. Half the audiobook is, but the last two hours comprise of Sue Townsend's own diary, plus some ramblings from a certain young Margeret Hilda Roberts.

    The Adrian Mole part sadly is too short and is not the usual daily diary entries that made the first two books so enjoyably funny. Instead, we are given snapshots into the main events of Adrian's life over a five year period. Though, still hilarious, I felt it would have been a lot better if we did not miss out on large chunks of Adrian's latter teenage years.

    The non-Adrian Mole material, though not that bad once you start listening to it, does not sit well here. I am at loss as to why the author chose to include it here! The Sue Townsend piece was quite engaging, and the young Margeret Thatcher parody had some priceless moments, but really both should have been published elsewhere.

    Still, the performances from all three narrators were commendable, and helped to make the best of the material here.
