NO SMOKING DAY. A momentous day! Smoking in a public place or place of work is forbidden in England. Though if you a lunatic, a prisoner, an MP or a member of the Royal Family you are exempt.
Adrian Mole is thirty-nine and a quarter. He lives in the country in a semi-detached converted pigsty with his wife Daisy and their daughter. His parents George and Pauline live in the adjoining pigsty. But all is not well.
The secondhand bookshop in which Adrian works is threatened with closure. The spark has fizzled out of his marriage. His mother is threatening to write her autobiography (A Girl Called S**t). And Adrian's nightly trips to the lavatory have become alarmingly frequent . . .

Ending too abrupt
The ending is not right but the ret of the book is hilarious. Now looking at all the others I can read.
Where's the ending sure the book must have the end missing
Hurrah for Sue & Adrian!
Don't let the reviews talking of a missing ending put you off - the book ends of a cliffhanger (of sorts) and a new Mole book is coming out which carries the story on.
This volume of Adrian's diaries finds him feeling very sorry for himself - as ever unable to step outside his dreams and appreciate the world around him.
Sue's ability to keep finding new stories to is amazng - to sustain Adrian over almost 25 years is certainly no small achievement.
Here's looking forward to finding out what happens next...
