I could report him for that. Wednesday January 7th Nigel came round on his new bike this morning.
It has got a water bottle, a milometer, a speedometer, a yellow saddle, and very thin racing wheels. He only goes to the shops and back on it. If I had it, I would go all over the country and have an experience. My spot or boil has reached its peak. I found a word in my dictionary that describes my father.
It is malingerer. He is still in bed guzzling vitamin C. The dog is locked in the coal shed. Epiphany is something to do with the three wise men. Big deal! Thursday January 8th Now my mother has got the flu.
This means that I have to look after them both. I have been up and down the stairs all day.
I cooked a big dinner for them tonight: two poached eggs with beans, and tinned semolina pudding. I gave it to the dog in the coal shed. My grandmother is coming tomorrow morning, so I had to clean the burnt saucepans, then take the dog for a walk.
It was half-past eleven before I got to bed. No wonder I am short for my age. I have decided against medicine for a career. Friday January 9th It was cough, cough, cough last night.
My grandma came and was disgusted with the state of the house. I showed her my room which is always neat and tidy and she gave me fifty pence.
I showed her all the empty drink bottles in the dustbin and she was disgusted. My grandma let the dog out of the coal shed. She said my mother was cruel to lock it up. The French have a term — roman fleuve — for the novel sequence that takes a cast of characters through the years. There should be a matching name le protagoniste vieillissant? Such a protagonist is a special kind of companion.
In the past it was common for fictional characters who reappeared in one book after another never to age. I remember noticing, aged nine or 10, that Biggles, dashing hero of my favourite tales of adventure, had flown for the RFC in the first world war admittedly while still in his teens , been an air ace in the Battle of Britain, and then, in the s and 60s, worked for Scotland Yard in their special air police division with his also still sprightly friends Algy, Ginger and Bertie.
What elixir of youth had he drunk? Harry Potter and the curse of middle age: should fictional children ever grow up? She had devoured the tales of his exploits when a child. William featured in some 40 books over half a century. Yet though his author took account of changing times motor cars, the second world war, television her antihero remained forever 11 years old, an unageing monitor of adult follies and vanities.
That other great protagonist of the English comic novel, Bertie Wooster , remained similarly forever young. He was a gormless, emotionally susceptible chap in his 20s when he first blundered into life in and remained no older and absolutely no wiser through many a misadventure over the next five decades. These characters live in some golden age, eternally youthful, brave and foolish. Their wise creators could never let them become sour.
I think the title suits the story perfectly. Setting Place: The story takes place in a small town in England.
Somewhere in the vicinity of Sheffield. I dont think it was necessary to use this place. The writer could have chosen any place as long as it is in England. Time: The story take place from till I do think that the story would have been different if it didnt take place then.
There are a few events mentioned that took place in the book. Like Lady Dianas marriage or the Falkland War. Genre The genres of this book are growing up and humour. Character Adrian Mole is 13 years old. He lives with his mother, father and dog. They live in a town somewhere in the vicinity of Sheffield.
He works at school as a Samaritan and outside of school as a paper boy. He comes from a lower middle class family so he isnt rich but he isnt poor either. Adrian is also a worrier.
He worries about a lot of things. Like his acne, the problem of existence, the crack in his parents marriage, love and school. He likes to write poems and aims to become a writer. Adrian believes he is an intellectual.
Hes not that smart but he is very naive. Naive, you notice this at the beginning of the story. For example, he doesnt realize what kind of relationship his mother and their neighbour Mr.
Lucas have. Egoistic, he doesnt like the fact that some people have things he doesnt have. Like a mountain bike. Unenergetic, he doesnt like to exercise at all. He always asks his father to write a note so he wont have to join the P.
Helpful, he likes to help people. Thats why he joined the Samaritans. Dutiful, he keeps reporting things to the teacher. He thinks its his duty. I think hes a funny character.
I like the way he talks but I disagree with him on certain things. He is a unique person and he has an unique way of thinking. He doesnt really think like me. He is well described. Its easy to read about him and it doesnt bore me at all.
He is 13 years old. He begins his diary with a few New Years resolutions. His parents become sick and Adrian looks after them. His parents get into a fight after their neighbour Mr.
Lucas brings his mother flowers. He decides to become an intellectual and sends the BBC a letter. He writes poems and joins the library.
