Summary

It's 1997. Adrian, 30, is a chef at an up-market restaurant, selling down-market food for ridiculous prices. There, the only person who seems to notice he can't cook is AA Gill. But problems abound when, in a fit of madness, he agrees to become a TV chef on the show Offally Good.

Yet some things don't change. Adrian's still profoundly in love with Pandora, now an MP; his parents' marriage is in trouble; and Sharon Bott, spectre of the past, returns to haunt the traumatized Adrian, who has enough on his plate as it is.

Great book but why is narrator now from Lancashire

Love the book, the narrator was good story tellingwise but hard to enjoy as much when is flitting between Brummie and Yorkshire accents for Adrian and family instead of Leicestershire apart from that was good

Funny As Ever

It's an all time favourite - Adrian's always a winner. I have been re-reading the books over and over since the start of secondary school and they never stopped being enjoyable.

A national treasure - what's not to love!

Adrian Mole - and national treasure what is not to love about him; funny, warm, witty and engaging.
