Publisher's Summary

Finally given the heave-ho by Pandora, Adrian Mole finds himself in the situation of living with the love-of-his-life as she goes about shacking up with other men. Worse, as he slides down the employment ladder, from deskbound civil servant in Oxford to part-time washer-upper in Soho, he finds that critical reception for his epic novel, Lo! The Flat Hills of My Homeland, is not quite as he might have hoped.

Just my luck

The narrator IS Adrian Mole. So many funny moments. It never gets boring, you can blink and miss hilarious sentences.

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.

Fun, but a bit disappointing

Some hilarious moments and it's nice keeping up with the characters, but the books feel gradually less funny to me as they go along. I don't normally buy books on Audible because they're often too pricey for me, and I wouldn't particularly recommend this one except to big fans of the series. Still enjoyed it and I'll probably hunt out the others for a read someday. :)
