Book Review: Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Friend (A) suggested this book to Friend (B). After reading the book, Friend (B) recommended this book to me. Eventually, Friend (A) also suggested this book to me. It looked like it would be a fun read and I was excited to get it. I was planning to buy the book after all the Christmas expenses last year. But it turns out I didn't even have to cause both Friend (A) and Friend (B) ended up getting the book for me for Christmas. Now I have 2 copies. I wasn't able to exchange the other one (which Friend B still had the receipt for) on time. So yeah... I want to get the other 2 books in the series! :)

Diary of a Wimpy Kid written by Jeff Kinney is a FUN LIGHT EASY READ. Definitely written for kids but it also caters to the young at heart. The story revolves around Greg Heffley, the protagonist and the author of the "diary". He shares with us through his near daily diary entries what his life is like in middle school. Tough for the most part I must say. The story portray's a very realistic picture of middle school life in America. It's so realistic it makes me think if the story was based on the author's experience. The only thing I will warn you about is that the ending feels under cooked. When you reach the end you'll be like "that's it? that's the end?". It will make you wish for more. So I suggest you don't read it too fast and most importantly, enjoy every page of it! :)


  1. I actually read a book in this series, the one with the green cover and I kept ON laughing out loud! I totally agree with you about this series! :))

  2. the 1st one (the red one) isn't so funny. but i like it :) u wana borrow? i can send it via pilar.
