Submarine - Joe Dunthorne

I'm surprised that no-one has commented on this book, especially as a film version has recently been released.

To cut straight to the chase - I ready this recently and couldn't believe what a poorly written rip off of Adrian Mole it it. Almost the same story line and although I finished reading it, I was trying to find out if it got better or carried on following the AM story line word for word.

The plot revolves round (as per Adrian Mole) teenage angst, 1st love/getting his end away, parents getting divorced, not fitting in at school, being a swot/geek etc, etc

I found AM much funnier and better written, where this just left me feeling frustrated at the characters.
