Double Down Reviews
I keep reading these books like an idiot thinking that there is going to be something new, something unique, something funny. Instead, all I ever get is the same old same old. It feels routine at this point and I think it's time that Jeff Kinney steps out of his million dollar comfort zone and writes something original again. This series was cutting edge ten years ago, but now it has become so over- played I feel like Diary of a Wimpy Kid is ripping off Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The only highlight i ...more
Blah. I felt as if whatever creative talent Jeff Kinley may have had left him. First of all, when this came out it was all "revolutionary." Yeh right. At the turn of the century, France, Britain, and Germany had series that are almost alike to this. So Jeff just looked at the Europeans and said, "Lemme copy that great idea and sell it here!" Also, it's not funny. The only joke is how bad it is. And then there's Greg. He's not relatable at all. He doesn't care about his future, which every kid do ...more
Can always count on this series for some fun!
I feel like Jeff Kinney should have stopped the series at 10. 11 is too much, and, to be honest, I didn't really enjoy the book that much. I feel like there wasn't even a plot-just a bunch of random scenes and a rushed ending. Also, the description on the back is not accurate. It says that the book is about Greg and Rowley making a movie together, but that doesn't happen until the very end.
Although this book wasn't my favorite, I must admit it was a fun read. I did enjoy the pictures and the bo ...more
Had to read this after the 2 books I read before to relieve myself and have some fun atleast.
Another book in the franchise with few original ideas which I liked and found funny and was a nice stress buster and overall relatable in a way.
i hope content gets better from next book onward.
recommended to adults as a stress reliever.
What can be a better option to get out of adulthood miseries? Wimpy kid just woke my inner child up and kick the reality away hard and I am not regretting it at all!
really good book, it was a super quick read, and really good if you are in a book slump. I have always loved Jeff Kinneys books, and also loved this one. I would highly recommend this book, and the whole wimpy kid series to anybody, who wants an easy and quick, but still really good read.
I love this series. Reasons being -
1) Short read
3)The kid in me goes 'YAY'
I picked up this book in Oxford bookstore months back. I wanted to finish it then and there but I had to give up halfway. Thankfully I got the book yesterday and I finished it 😁.
The introduction to Greg's diary begins with a bit of humour and wild imagination (which I had many when I was kid).
The book also deals with the much familiar pursuit of chocolate gain 😁
Rowley the clueless and naive friend brought few ...more
