Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes: It is both warm and funny.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Adrian, since it is his diary.
Have you listened to any of Nicholas Barnes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes in the first adrian Mole book. This was just as good as this
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Adrian's parents have reconciled, but he is still obsessed with Pandora and writing for the BBC. Adrian's life is about to turn upside down, but he sails on naively unaware of major events happening around him. Much of the book concerns his mother's pregnancy and delivery, and the settling in of Adrian's new sister. This made me laugh so hard, I had to stop listening while driving. I couldn't see through the tears.
Maybe it's because the characters are more familiar, but I thought this book was funnier than the first. Adrian's diary entries present huge warning flags of trouble ahead, and much of the fun is seeing it come crashing in. I can't wait to get to the next book.
Taking over straight from 'The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole', book number two of the highly successful series doesn't disappoint in audiobook form. In fact, it's brilliant and I have already purchased #3.
Nicholas Barnes is a sublime narrator and really brings Mole to life.
This, the second book in the Adrian Mole series of books superbly written by Sue Townsend, is every bit as funny and absorbing as the first. Again, I read this many years ago when I too was a teenager, and it brings back so many fond and awkward memories.
Adrian, is a character you can't help feeling sympathy for, even though at times you can't help but feel he brings a lot of his woes upon himself. But at heart, he is a decent and kind-hearted teenager, trying to find himself in this big world.
Narration by Nicholas Barnes was very good and helped to make this audio experience a pleasant one.
I look forward to the next book in the series.
