"I have a problem. I am an intellectual, but at the same time I am not very clever."
- Adrian Albert Mole
What do the critics have to say about The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole?
"I not only wept, I hooted and howled and had to get up and walk around the room and wipe my eyes so that I could go on reading" - Tom Sharpe
"...a marvelous new novel...it seems set fair to become as much a cult book as The Catcher in the Rye...This book is both touching and screamingly funny." - Jilly Cooper
"Adrian Mole was first introduced to the British public 10 years ago. Since then he has established himself as a classic...The Adrian Mole diaries are, in fact, thoroughly subversive. They constitute an attack on all the half-baked ideas on marriage and parenthood that have been cheerfully swallowed by middle-class trendies for the past 30 years or so...A true hero for our time." - Richard Ingrams
"At last: a wit to touch the hearts of three generations...The author's accuracy and comic timing left me wincing with pleasure." - New Statesman
