Adrian Mole The Cappuccino Years

An accidental celebrity with a spreading bald patch despairing of current family values Mole is. Before I picked up this book I had no idea who Adrian Mole or Sue Townsend were It just so happened that the novel was sitting on the bookshelf in my office one day and I decided to give it a go From page one I fell in love with Adrian Mole Basically he is a failure He means well he does everything he can to be a success but it always backfires His story is a true tragic comedy which fortunately is light enough on the tragedy to keep us from feeling badThe best point about Adrian Mole is that I could see a little bit of myself in him He is an intensely relatable character because who among us hasn t looked success directly in the eye and then failed anyway He is balding bitter and unhappy but still goes through life as best he can and for that he is a kind of hero

    My Adrian Mole collection is complete Towsend's usual hilarious style manages mostly to cover up the absurdity that Adrian Mole retains the naivité of a teenager in middle age Or else we smirk at ourselves in the mirror inside the rat cage as we race on through a society of illusion and desillusionOn second reading even Adrian has grown a lot bitter a little wiser about his lot in life At times Unless he's feeling offa

    I really enjoyed the Adrian Mole books when they first came out but I've forgotten which ones I've read and so am making my way back through them This is one I think I missed first time round set in the wake of Blair's election victory Elements that were topical at the time celebrity chefs Alistair Campbell's use of spin are given the affectionately mocking Townsend treatment Meanwhile Adrian's crazy dysfunctional family continue their ou
