Reviews Rodrick Rules (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, #2)

  • Nandakishore Varma
    I read this book for two reasons: I needed to get my book count up for the reading challenge, and reading We Need To Talk About Kevin immediately after No Country For Old Men was too much darkness, even for me. I picked this up from son's shelf, because I had enjoyed the first book: my son was flabbergasted, and my wife made fun of me, saying she'd give me Peter Pan next. But I am glad I did pick it up, however.Greg Heffley is a loser: bullied by...

    Ok, so I read this book to see why my students seem to love it so. Now, I'm all for silly humor. I can understand that, but I don't get the attraction for this book. I hated it. I finished it in a little over a day, but never did I stop wishing for it to end. I think the characters were horrible; the people in the book did mean things to each other; every person in the book was inconsiderate to each other; etc. I really could go on! I know I'm go...

  • KatieLynn
    Rodrick Rules was just as funny and descriptive as the other. In this book, Greg has disturbing conflicts with his brother that enrages Greg. As Greg states his *moments* with Rodrick, he discovers Rodrick has been rather mean too him. I can't wait to read the third book!
  • Kenny Hernandez
    This book is great. Because it is base on a true movie. But my faviorite part was when Rodick (older brother of greg).Made a big party and greg had to help Rodick pick up the mess but Rodick and greg was lucky at first. ut then
  • Hiba Arrame
    I swear this was funny hell a lot funny than the first one! So it was about Gregory and his relationship with his brother Rodrick, and even though my relation with my brother was never the same but this! This was so funny.The last page with the scientific experiment on plants and black pepper made me crack up! I swear this was funny 😂😂😂 hell a lot funny than the first one! So it was about Gregory and his relationship with his brother ...
  • Mephistia
    I didn't like it, personally. The cartoons were cute and funny -- some parents may think that means younger kids can read it, but the reading level is definitely around 5th grade and older. Think the age the first HP book was aimed at, and you have the correct reading age for this book.Why I didn't like it? The protagonist never learned a lesson of any sort whatsoever. Throughout the book, it was hinted at that his elder brother (Rodrick) had a h...

    This book I can't describe:DIt's funnyI read it so slow, so the laugh doesn't end of my day:)Just a little something:-dad said to Rodrick: well, for starters Abraham Lincon didin't write "to kill a mockingbird":DhahahaI really recommend this book to everyone wanna have a relaxing time.ENJOY
  • Pooja
    Having an older bother like Rodrick is not trouble enough that Gregory has to spend a week with him alone when their mother comes up with this idea of getting them all together and writing in her columns about it!Gregory has already less problems in his life that now Rodrick is literally ruling his life and being small, younger and the wimpy kid, Gregory can't do a thing about it!My favorite part in this book is when Rodrick organizes the party a...

    I am reviewing this one soon for sure!
  • [Shai] Bibliophage
    Anyone who has a sibling or siblings could relate to Greg in this 2nd installment. Aside from Manny, Rodrick is one of my favorite character in this series. Rodrick could be a little pain in the ass for Greg but behind his facade, he cares and love for his younger brothers even though he just doesn't want to admit it.
  • Shannon
    This book wasn't as silly as the first one and it seems to focus more on Greg and his friends and family being mean to each other.This book focuses more on Greg's relationship with his older brother and how Rodrick is always picking on him. Greg's younger brother Manny is a tattletale who gets away with everything. Greg has unfortunately been picking up a lot of Rodrick's personality traits too; he plays mean tricks on his classmates and is horri...

    When last we saw our hero Greg Heffley he had survived everything from cursed cheese to an unfortunate stage debut. Not that much has changed in his life, of course. He’s still a perpetual victim of his older brother Rodrick’s crazy schemes and his younger brother Manny’s three-year-old excesses. Greg might have to do what Rodrick says for a while too since his older brother knows something terrible, HORRIBLE even, that happened to Greg ove...

    3.5 stars!"Anyway, when Rodrick gets First Prize tomorrow and passes Science, I just hope he realises how lucky he is to have a brother like ME."This book definitely tickled my fancy. The book depicted the relationship between Greg(the narrator) and his elder brother Rodrick in a way that can surely crack you up. And all those cartoons were cherry on the top! I really enjoyed it and read it in single read.Recommended for light reading and those w...
  • Sameem Khwaja
    Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney is an exciting and hilarious journey of Greg Heffley. In Rodrick Rules, Jeff Kinney focuses on the relationship of Greg and his brothers, Rodrick and Manny. Rodrick is older than Greg, and is much more 'corrupt'. He manipulates his father into doing his homework and other selfish acts. Rodrick soon gets caught and gets punished. Manny on the other hand, never gets caught doing bad things. Greg hates Manny for m...
  • Becky
    The main character of this book has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. He's always looking for an angle; he has no empathy for anyone and only sees a situation for what it can gain him and will use anything and anyone toward that end; he feels no remorse for his wrongdoings ever and always feels he's being punished unfairly; he constantly puts down his best friend, even though he would have NO friends if it weren't for Rowley. Bottom line: There ...
  • Alex
    I re-read this because after reading Outlander I feel like nothing will compare, so I'm stuck in a loop of children's books. It's not that I can't read an adult book it's that I don't want to. I feel like my love of Outlander will cause a bad rating and review for the next romance read so I stuck with these.Also, I've always enjoyed these books. Yes I may be older then the intended age group but I love this series. My reviews from earlier didn't ...
  • Lori
    While not nearly as funny as the original... Rodrick Rules was still an entertaining kids book. Written as daily journal entries by a middle school kid named Gregory, the classic middle child, we follow him through another greuling year at school and at home. Loaded with tons of embarrassing moments, and sneaky back-handed tricks... this book must be read by everyone who enjoyed the first book.Look out, a third novel is in the works.... My son al...
  • Tina
    Rodrick Rules wasn't as hilarious as the first book of the series (but was still a pretty funny and quick read). I'm guessing that's because Greg is growing up and adults are pretty boring, you know. Still, I'll definitely give the third book a try. I actually can't wait to see what Manny has in store for us (I really really like that kid).
  • Shaikhah
    As expected.. so good to read :)
  • Jodysegal
    Anyone who has ever suffered at the hands of an older brother or sister, or even worse, been sandwiched in between older and younger siblings, will thoroughly enjoy this cartoon novel delivered in the guise of the journal of the beleaguered, under-appreciated and very funny Gregory. This book makes an especially excellent reading suggestion for reluctant boy readers. The third in the series is forthcoming!SLJ: "He's a character that readers can l...

    Ch-ching! I've been spending way too much time lately with my new best friend Greg Heffley. That kid doesn't have a clue, which makes him all the more hilarious. Yeah, he's self-absorbed with no self-awareness. Yeah, he's a jerk to his best friend, his family, and his teachers. I'm not sure that being totally oblivious makes this ok, but it certainly makes it funny.How many times do we unceremoniously give back-handed compliments? How many times ...

    Greg Heffley is back for a second volume. Things haven't changed much for him--he still thinks he's cooler than his best friend Rowley, his parents are still nerdily out of touch, and Greg is still running for the coveted Class Clown title. Unfortunately, that's not all that hasn't changed over the summer--younger brother Manny is still a tattletale, older brother Rodrick is still a bully, and Greg still has the Cheese Touch. Only now Manny is sp...

    Diary of a Wimpy: Rodrick Rules by Jeff Kinney introduced a new main problem to the table: older siblings. Rodrick the teenaged brother of the Middle School survivalist Greg Hefley tortures him to the point of a monopolizing frustration. As is Greg doesn’t have enough to deal with already, in this graphic novel, Greg now has his older brother acting up. The power seeking, rock-and-roll entrepreneur, and leader of the band “Loded Diaper” Rod...

    Greg Heffley starts another year at school after summer vacation. As he makes it very clear, summer vacation did not go well at all. Most of his time was spent wasted away, and whatever of a vacation he had was clearly not as he had anticipated. For one, Rodrick has found out that Greg has been maintaining a journal. It can be guessed that, given Rodrick's character and his behaviour to his brother, that did not go in any way Greg would have like...

    3.5 starsI remembered watching this movie on the TV, just for a few minutes and I'd fallen asleep. Yeah, the movie bores me but the book was a different story. So in this book, Greg's mom thought that Greg did a good job on his previous journal and bought another one, for this year. To make the story worse, Rodrick found out about the journal and you know what happens next.He's devastated that his summer break is pretty boring and his dad, OH MY ...
