After reading the original Adrian Mole, I couldn’t resist buying the second in the series for my Kindle. Growing Pains is as funny, perceptive and warm as the first. Join Adrian as he continues to battle love, his parents and lower-middle-classdom through a time of political turmoil for Great Britain.
One of my favourite lines is: Foreigners can’t help living abroad because they were born there, but for an English person to go is ridiculous, especially now that sun-tan lamps are so readily available. I don’t condone the use of sun lamps and would recommend that the English venture into the rest of the world.
