    The house party continues.I bet no one of you would have put your money in for this series success, when the first book came out.Yes, no one.The story does not get stagnated. The puns are still amusing, if not novel. The book lets your inner child's troll treasure out and you get hooked. For some it is a guilty pleasure to go through the misdeeds of Greg.For me, they go straight to my CV. Novelty This is a case well handled by Jeff. Although the ...

    The first entry in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series came out in 2007, when I was almost twelve years old — meaning I was a part of the target audience. I'll never forget buying that one at my school's book fair, taking it home, and laughing aloud at the antics of Greg Heffley, his family, and his best friend Rowley. I'd never read anything like it! Skip to the present day. I am now almost twenty-one, and I still buy these books on release day. S...

    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!

    I purchased this book for my son in the airport and read it on the flight. More enjoyable escapades of Greg Heffley and his eccentric family. Jeff Kinney has achieved that rare feat of writing a children's series which is enjoyed equally by adults.

    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 ripp...

    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 w...

    I've got to say the worst book I've read in 2016. It has a poorly written plot, you could even say there was no plot and there really wasn't the kind of "Jeff Kinney" word choice you'd see from a "Jeff Kinney" book. Usually the humor is always great in this series but I could not see any funny humor in this book, I never thought anything was funny and I thought it was just poorly written. I do not recommend this book to anyone, this is very poorl...

    I thought the book was amazing there is a balloon contest where Gregory balloon fell down the balloon when someone found expected a cash reward but Never got it.Then later they did a movie about worm attack but then it didn't work out.

    I really enjoyed this book, as always Jeff Kinney has written another great book. I really like the part in this book when the school does a Balloon Brigade, the students all get a helium filled balloon and the kid with the furthest traveling balloon gets a prize. That year the prize was a jar of candy corn, which Greg wanted badly. So he wrote a long letter to attach to his balloon to tell the people that had gotten it to call the school to tell...

    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 read2) Humour 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 ga...

    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...

    Oh, Greg! When will you learn?Actually, that's just silly: I hope Greg never learns! Because if Greg learned (how to talk to girls, what his parents really meant, how to be a good friend), there would be an end to this series. The fun is watching a kid who is average at best, and honestly pretty clueless and selfish, muddle his way around. Last night I took my almost twelve-year-old son to see Jeff Kinney talk, and we both loved it. Kinney is fun...

    These books are a total guilty pleasure for me. Some are better than others. I kind of rounded up for my rating on this one. Maybe it was the psycho cackling witch (I once had an Elmo doll ask me from a silent, darkened closet "Do you want to play with Elmo?!" AAAAaaaaghh!!!!) or the candy corn barfing pig (they kept that thing!?), but it was probably the French Horn "toot" that really made me laugh. Oh Greg, you really remind me of what it feels...

    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.

    I finally read this book! I was looking for this book for about a month, but I found it in a bookstore in Hong Kong. I read it in a day, it was that good. So, this book, made me connect to my life at home in a lot of ways. Including how Greg's mom gets "disappointed" a lot of times for no reason. Just like my mom (sometimes). The thing is that I don't get parents, they get mad or disappointed at me randomly, which sometimes really annoys me. I fe...

    This book is about how Greg thought that people with cameras and stuff would "stalk" people for a tv show. When Greg finds a camera in the basement and wants to prove that he has a talent. Greg and Rowley decides to make a scary movie and wants to become rich/famous at the same time.

    I don't even know where to begin...Greg talks incessantly about aliens, reality shows, dreams, his mother's classes at school, french horn lessons, Halloween parties, and oh yeah, making a movie to get rich quick. Somehow, though, it all seems to work. These books are hilarious and keep getting better and better. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Double Down is the latest and greatest from Jeff Kinney. Get it, read it, and laugh your head off. It's amazing!

    This book is about a kid who just can't do anything right. He gets bad grades at school, plays video games all day, joins a band jut to get invited to a party, etc. After he gets grounded, he and his friend try to make a movie, but every thing goes wrong.I rated this book 4 stars because it was really good but really short, I mean, I read it all in one day!!! I can't wait until next year when a new one comes out.

    I'm not sure what it says that the eleventh (ELEVENTH?!) installment of the most self-centered kid is slightly better than the tenth, and still it garners a two...but there you have it. Does it get kids reading? Yes. Is it quality literature, or even FUNNY anymore? No. Did I buy it, albeit months after its initial release, knowing that it'll get a whole lotta love from my students? Yes. Sigh.
