Read full description of the books:
In 1993 I was lent this book by my girlfriend at the time. I wonder if she was implying something?
As it was published in 1987, I assume that the title and diary format were an attempt to latch on to the popularity of the Adrian Mole books at the time. The protagonists of both books are neurotic adolescents, but whereas Adrian is obsessed with overcoming his working class origins and being recognised as intellectual, our hero in this book is simply a cipher for the author's aim of giving young readers a wealth of health information. It's interesting that his obsessions begin with reading leaflets in doctors' waiting rooms, because the book as a whole is as informative and entertaining as a book-sized health leaflet. There's no real plot or character development, just a series of faddish obsessions as the hero moves from dealing with acne to healthy eating, exercise, dental hygiene and other basic general health issues.
As I say, it was ultimately no more interesting or fun than a series of health leaflets picked up in a surgery. Consequently it was a pretty forgettable reading experience and if there was anything I didn't already know in the book, I neither noticed nor remembered.
