Adrian Mole and the Weapons of Mass Destruction by Sue Townsend
Adrian Mole is now 34 and a single father of two, but still not quite connecting with the realities of life. He cancels a holiday in Cyprus when he learns that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction that can reach Cyprus is 45 minutes. When he can't get his holiday deposit back, he begins writing to Tony Blair telling him he needs proof of these weapons provided to his travel adviser. Adrian stumbles through life, working in a second-hand bookstore, renting an apartment overlooking a filthy canal, and going deeper into debt. When his 17-year old son joins the army and is sent to Iraq, reality hits too close to home. Sue Townsend's further adventures of Adrian Mole has received mostly positive reviews. The Observer says, "Adrian Mole is probably the most successful comic literary creation of the past two decades and he shows no sign of giving ground."
