... He is very possessive and misses her dreadfully when Pandora goes on holiday.  Adrian thinks he is an intellectual. He shows signs of being vaguely talented at English if he was a bit more modest about his work. Townsend uses humour to portray Adrian's character, she makes him sound funny and stupid. Things like: "I am reading ` Mill On The Floss' by a bloke called George Eliot." and: "Looked at Big And Bouncy. Measured my ` thing'. It was 11 centimeters.  also: "Looked at Big And Bouncy.

He wears a lot of gold jewellery and reads naughty magazines. Adrian and Lucas do not get on. Adrian calls him names like``that creep Lucas'. George and Pauline broke up and Pauline moved back in with Adrian and his dad.           Townsend uses language which is captivating. It feels like you are reading about a real boy, not a fictional character. The language is enthralling and it makes you want to read more. It is extremely descriptive and imaginative. The book is in the layout of a diary and is very neatly presented. The dialogue is amusing all the way through. Townsend uses humour to portray Adrian's character, which stops you feeling too sorry for him: "Their trunks writhe and twist into the earth and form a plethora of roots" (part of A.Mole's English essay) Adrian often tells short stories about his day in his diary entries. He includes dialogue, but he obviously tells it from his point of view. ...
