Adrian is really dumb, and so full of himself. He is also quite fun, though, often in spite of himself. His diaries are strangely addictive.
I think these diaries of Adrian Mole should be really true to life of teenagers in the 80s. But I am not quite sure if there were many families in GB in the same situation as Adrian's family's.
I am actually very fond of the hero--Adrian Mole. He has a heart of gold and is always ready to help others. And it impresses me how much he reads! He is really trying hard to be intellectual!
It's interesting to be bombarded of so much mild irony from a teenager. It's not too bad for me when I compare the irony with what I had with Catch-22, which is totally different.
By the way, I didn't intended to really British writers successively but I ended up reading two in a row. There is so much colloquialism! I have to say that I've had an intensive course of informal British English.
