If you've read Diary Of A Nobody you won't gain anything from reading this modern pastiche, most of which is barely amusing. I got about halfway through before deciding I couldn't be bothered to find out what house handles were, what his mysterious job consisted of, nor any of the other unanswered questions at that point. The recurring story of Smithy the pigeon is downright stupid, utterly implausible - a pigeon that lives in the attic and wears pajamas when it's cold I don't think so. Harmless [...]
There really isn't much point to this book, but then again I have a strong feeling there isn't supposed to be a point. Very humorous in parts ( especially the talking toilet) and a nice light read to make you chuckle now and then. Reading it has really made me want to read 'Robin Cooper's' Other book, The Timewaster letters. Only three stars though because it really wasn't anything special, just a humourous light read.
If you liked the Adrian Mole series you will also like this one. The diaries of a middle-aged wannabe inventor naively believing in the superioriy of his inventions and other creative outputs (his poems are appalingly bad, I say I say.) and, very like Adrian Mole, not quite seeing things as they are. Pathetic in its own right but very entertaining. And if you ever come across Aqua-Choc (chocolate with a water centre) you know where it stemmed from.
hmm, i think the book is really funny. the letters and doodles never fail to make me chuckle.i like the little dramas of robins life and the little world he lives ins an easy and light hearted read that will make you smile to yourself a lot if you are a lighthearted person who doesnt take things too seriouslye time waster letters are also good but, do not follow any story at all. it is just a collection of robins dodgy letters. but there are loads of chuckles to be had.
This book was hilarious!! A very light and fun read. It was also addictive to read because I just got so curious about how things will go the next day and then the next, etc. I especially loved the house handles part! The book is much like JD's very random fantasies on Scrubs which makes it more realistic and something everyone can relate to.
Slow going so far, I hope that this diary, by the fabulous author of the Timewaster Letters picks up. I was hoping for somehthing more like a novel. This is as anal and bizarre as the letters, but without much to suck you in. Perhaps a good toilet book ?
loved it, read mainly on trains causing embarrasment due to sniggering and actual lolling. Usually other peoples diaries are quite self-centred and I cant really enjoy in case they come in and catch me reading but this was better.
Hilarious, the best book I've read in years. This book sees the return of Parmaynu (Table tennis bat that is also an Expert) as well as pleasing to see the character of Robin Cooper develop. Plus some of the best jokes known to man (What is glass made from? Sand, mostly)
not bad for when you want to kill some time. Short book to read, I had it on audio book, the narrator with a British accent made it a bit more enjoyable.

Absurde et addictif. Terriblement drôle.
Loved this book! Even better than the timewaster letters books. I really hope there is a follow up diary soon!
Innocently entertaining! I enjoyed the fact that the book is like "butter sandwiches" bland to some but delicious to others. Definitely not hot or spicy, but pleasant.
Love it!!! Absolutely hilarious!
Reading this book was such a waste of time.
well I thought the house handles were funny anyway!
Like a male version of Bridget Jones. Silly and simple and entertaining to listen to in the car on the way to work.
I say I say I say, Robin Cooper is jolly good.
Sadly I think the point escaped me
very funny in partsbut a bit weird in others
In short, The Timewaster Diaries is a waste of time. Strangely compelling but full of crap!
