  • Aj the Ravenous Reader
    So my husband and I visited my sister and her family and the first room I checked when we got there was my niece’s and of course the first thing I inspected was her bookshelf. She probably noticed me maliciously eyeing this one. Good, sensible eight year old handed it to me even before I could say a word. *wipes tears* This is exactly what I needed after the heartbreak I went through with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, a mindless, com...

    I recently started reading this book and so far I really liked it when Greg was talking about his life in his mom's belly. He was doing backflips and summer salts while he was in her belly. I was also surprised to read that Greg's pacifier was a hand me down from his brother, Roderick, because that is just gross. I think Greg feels lovestruck because whenever he is around this girl named Holly Hills, he acts like she's some kind of glistening rai...

    I'm so exited for the book! [image error] Update: Finished reading! It lasted me two days. Thank you Ryan for checking it out from the libary for me!!! (Little brother)

    This reading was funny to me, and Greg Heffley's parents didn't appear too much and they didn't do so many stupid things.
  • Kenny Hernandez
    This book was GREAT!!! It talk about Greg's life in the start then when you start reading more to it it goes from gregs life to his dance. But you should see what happens to him in the end. I could go on because this is the BEST diary of a wimpy kid book. I Kenny Hernandez could relate to Gregs life. Knowing from Greg that stuff goes great to bad is just like me because I may be in first then come in last. But my point is that this book is THE BE...

    My brother and I are a big fan of the Wimpy Kid series. The books are usually hilarious! This one was probably my least favourite so far though. Just not as funny as the other ones in the series. Still enjoyable, but it felt like something was really lacking in this one...

    A diary is always my favorite 'kind of' book to read, specially if it's of somebody else's.I remember ending up reading two juniors' diaries when they were out. I won't say I was spying, because I was not. Espionage is just not my thing. They were careless enough to leave their important stuff in the open and how can you stop someone who would read anything readable. The thing is the diaries weren't funny. Generally, People seem to write diaries ...

    Mum: How many stars?LRN: Four and a half.Mum: You pretty much love Greg Heffley with all your heart; why the missing half-star?LRN: The thing is, it's about love, and that makes me aggghhhh. Any story that involves love makes me kind of crazy.Mum: Oh, so does Greg get some smooches?LRN: Not exactly, but his friend does. Mum: Which one? The skinny one? LRN: No, I mean Rowley. Mum: Anything else about this story? LRN: The thing is, he gets a date, ...

    We got forced to read Diary of a Wimpy Kid as a transition text for year 7. Not the best way to get introduced into this series but yeah, okay, it wasn't that bad. The teachers said that it would be great if we could finish it during summer holidays so when we began school we would feel more confident and know what it's like. Erm..NO, DO NOT READ THIS AS A TRANSITION TEXT. Who has a cheese touch in high school? Geez.. Anyway this is a review on T...

    Just Wow! I just love Greg. love him so much. I can read the whole series over and over.

    I pretend to buy these books for my students, but the truth is I can't resist the humor myself.
  • Prashant
    I won't lie about the fact that I was very excited to read this book. It's mostly because - the first 5 books' box set lived right on my desk close to bed till I finished them all- I ordered and read the 6th book as soon as I finished the setSo how is this latest installment? As with almost all the series (consider Potter as an exception)this is not as good and fun as the initial ones. Gregory is still faltering at different levels and his filial...

    **SPOILER ALERT** Ever wanted to read a book about a kid who s life is it all that. the genre of this book is realistic fiction. I liked this book because I can really relate to the main character in the book. The setting of this book is in a school and in a few of the characters houses and in a gym. Greg wanted a date to the dance but no one likes him so he tries to do anything for a date. Greg is a kid that no one likes and he is in 7th grade. ...

    I just read The Third Wheel by Jeff Kinney. It is the seventh book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. In the book, there is a Valentine's Day Dance at Greg Heffley's school. The problem is that he cant find anyone to go with him. The whole time as he rushes to find someone to go to the dance with him he's worried he'll be left out on the big night. When I first read this book I was disappointed because it wasn't as funny or good as the the other...

    This one was actually pretty funny. It was fun to see Greg grow up, but still have the same hilarious adventures with Rowley and the gang from Greg's middle school. I would give it four stars because it was really funny and an easy read. I mean as far as comic books go. I can't say it's a very good book but in it's own field, this one was another prize winner by Jeff Kinney.P.S. Got this SUPER CHEAP at Target.

    I have read all the Wimpy Kid books so far, and I canNOT wait for this one to come out! I am PSYCHED!!!!! Jeff Kinney, you rule!

    It's nice, but quite short.
  • Josiah
    Diary of a Wimpy Kid is respected for two main reasons: the books' appeal to the most reluctant readers, and their side-splitting humor. After a bit of a lull in the previous few books, Jeff Kinney returns to comedic form in The Third Wheel, presenting some of his best jokes since the early entries in the series. The little kid at church who pretends he's a vampire, and convinces Greg's three-year-old brother Manny it's true? The picture book tha...

    I just hacked a book in 2 hours at Crossword. And, this was my first Wimpy Kid book, and boy, I loved it!! And do I feel guilty reading a kid's book? Not at all. After all the way I behave, people around me start thinking whether I am a overgrown kid or a loony toon straight from the nut house.That's not to say, all those grown-ups who take guilty pleasure in reading Wimpy Kid books are as mad as me. And I really now know, why kids rave about thi...
