Old School (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, #10) by Jeff Kinney

Old School (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, #10)

Life was better in the old days. Or was it? That’s the question Greg Heffley is asking as his town voluntarily unplugs and goes electronics-free. But modern life has its conveniences, and Greg isn’t cut out for an old-fashioned world. With tension building inside and outside the Heffley home, will Greg find a way to survive? Or is going “old school” just too hard for a kid like Greg?

    3.5-4This is my favorite cover of the series. I love the black and white.I liked this one, just not as much as the others. I felt this could have went in a totally different direction and had way more laughs. I expected to see how Greg would react to 'old school' devices and way of life. We instead got Greg having to go without technology completely and off to camp for a week. I feel the title was a bit misleading. It wasn't quite what I had expe...

    3.5 stars actually!! It Was fun!! Of course it was fun. But it was not just laugh out loud fun like the previous ones!! Here Jeff tried to show how much obsessed has greg's generation(!) become with technologies :p so he put our poor greg into some less modern situations and lead him to do some camping. And what happened afterwards it, was not greg's fault believe me ! He was just being himself :) Expected a bit more fun and a tiny bit more mat...

    Things are not getting better for Greg with time. Or for Rowley. Getting sent back from the camp twice for health issues is an augury for times to come.Greg is always a stay-at-home person. Yes, the video games are his true bliss. But messing things up with Dad's car and almost inundating the house down thinking he might be Noah - he has to leave town.Well, well, well. That is not the only object of irritation. No electronics means no life.The pi...

    Ah the humor :) Jeff Kinney has a knack for making readers sympathize with and scorn Greg at the same time ^^Sometimes Greg's whiny-ness is entirely justified, and other times you just want to slap him and that family of his! Don't even get me started in his brothers! And their pet pig....oh then there's that strange excuse for a mother and father.And the whole stinky cabin situation? Reading it was like living it, and I am kind of a clean freak ...

    the worst in the whole series. I hardly find humor in this one. I haven't understand why Jeff didn't use Manny properly . he is one of the main source of laughter. it's a disappointment for me.

    This is one AMAZING series. Kudos to the author for creating these fun books. I could be tense or upset or tired and all I have to do is just read a page or two of The Wimpy Kid and it totally cracks me up. As long as Jeff Kinney is writing these books, I promise to read each one of them. So, this book is about how life used to be in old times when 'three generations lived under the same roof', when people lived 'without electronics', and free of...

    I've been continually impressed by how high the quality of the Wimpy Kid books have been as the series has progressed. We're close to 10 years worth of the books now and, while at one time this was rumored to be the final book, that might not be so anymore. I wonder if that's part of the reason why this one was just okay.The charm of the books comes from the seemingly tied together stories to go along with the broader arc. I'd say the issue with ...

    I will never tire of this wonderful series.I own and have read all of the books apart from the very latest two which I will of course be getting too!These books are just a fun fly of a read and the nostalgia welcomes me back to these quirky characters and their extraordinary situations.Greg is just relatable on so many levels and I seem to relate to him the older I get, funnily enough. His crazy family never get old and this particular story had ...

    I imagine I'll keep reading these as long as Kinney continues putting them out.I wish I knew when they'd be over though. I don't like the thought of it just ending. ...Although, if I'm honest with myself, that's how my diary journal ended as a kid. One day: BAM! That was it. I just stopped writing in it, and couldn't get back into it. And I kept the thing for years.I thought it was funny when Heffley said early on (page 15), "And to be honest wit...

    'Rowley said that he doesn't want to cut the lemons because he said they cause tears. I told him he was mistaking it for ONION!'Old School is so awesome to put in words. I'm laughing so hard that I need to put efforts typing this review.Gregory is fed up about grown-ups always talking that it was better in their days and all the drama. He thinks it's not true. And he'll prove it to us. But will it be easy for a wimpy kid who has now a pig in his ...

    my brother let me borrow his books, and said for me to read his favourite series, Diary of A Wimpy Kid. And I thought that was adorable so I read the whole thing in an hour. Such a easy read to get through and can be enjoyed at any age. Awesome book!

    Jeff never gets old. I really liked this book, I'm a huge fan of Greg. I loved the characters in this one but I kind of missed Rowley and Manny. But it was great and funny. This is my favorite cover of all.I can't wait to read the next one!

    3.9 / 5 starsAt first, I was really annoyed with some things. The Diary of a Wimpy Kid books are known for making things look EXTREME with Greg's family but this time, it went a bit off the limit. I mean...the pig that Greg and his family found in book nine learned how to walk in two legs like a human and NOT ONLY THAT, it is implied that it learned how to write as well. How is that even possible?Plus, how is it possible for Greg to wear first hi...

    The pet pig from the last book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul is back. Roderick gets a job and Grandpa (Dad's dad) moves in. But some things never change, Greg is still in middle school. As he says on page 15, I feel like I've been in middle school FOREVER. Plus Manny still is not potty trained. This school year, Greg's grade gets to go on a class trip to Hardscrabble Farms for a few days. Greg has no interest in attending a back to nature ...

    Gosh, I never tire of this series. This installment was not as 'tight' as some of its predecessors, but it still managed to make me laugh out loud a couple of times.I was glad to see Greg's father having a more meaningful role in this volume, although introducing grandpa into the mix felt a little forced. The best part was the week-long camp section, where all of Heffley's dubious qualities came to the fore. It's interesting how Kinney is able to...

    This books are just a hoot. I agree with my Boy (age 11) that the previous one, about the road trip, was funnier, but this was still awesome. I love the grandpa's online dating, and really felt for him, being shipped off to an old timey farm with insufficient supplies . . . it reminded me of girls' camp with my church youth group as a teen. (I am not a willing camper.)

    Well, I Have always been a real big fan of the wimpy kid book series.From the very beginning it has been a unique series because of the extra ordinary fun elements. The simple yet funny sketches, real life jokes, chitchats of Greg's regular life - these simple things are bound to make you laugh out loud. While going through every single book, It has been a joyride being a complete mood lifter. But, good days are over I guess! Trust me, I could ne...
