  • NZLisaM
    Creative, imaginative, amusing fun!Every year as November rolls around I prepare myself for a guaranteed rip-roaringly funny, entertaining, light read, when the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book hits the shelves. We're now up to no. 14 Wrecking Ball, and this time around, Gregs family decide to upgrade their house. But living amidst a construction site of course leads to all sorts of hilarity and disaster. I would not want to be neighbours with t...

    This book is brilliant. I am 11 and I still love this hilarious book because it makes me laugh out loud. Even when I ask my friends to borrow some of the books, they are kind enough to lend it to me so i can take it home so my big bother even reads them. He loves them too. I have got most of the books. Jeff, you are my favorite author!

    1 starI hate this series now, Greg just gets worse as it goes on.He is such a selfish kid! Like, he wants a friend, but this "friend" has to do WHATEVER he wants.He also couldn't understand why Rowley got so upset about him possibly moving which didn't even happen. It was very unrealistic as well, things surely can't get THAT bad......Greg is always constantly complaining about literally anythingExcuse my ranting people.....😕
  • Jessica
    Is this the last book? There was a sort of last book vibe to this one, and some major upheaval in the Heffley family (not divorce or anything, nothing that might be too upsetting for kids). Last book or no, I still laugh until I cry over these books!
  • Vikas
    This is the 14th yes #14 book in the series and for me this was just about there. I liked it but because they make you laugh here and there but most of the book was static only focusing on one thing at a time and then just getting stuck there. And Although I finish these books fairly quickly and honestly you can finish one of these in couple of hours easy. Ah well it was okay and I hope that next one would be funnier and better because after all ...

    Is it really number 14? That means that every November for the last 14 years, I have been reading this series. Some of the surprising fun of reading about Greg has worn off, from familiarity, but there are always plenty of chuckles along the way. My students are definitely not as interested as they once were (this year, only one single student pre-ordered with me)
  • Fatma
    I think it is time for Jeff Kinney to bring in some new blood to the series. There should be one solid idea for every book, not just scattered easy to forget situations that are no longer as funny as it was used to be.By the middle of the book i got a hope that the series will finally start to add some changes to Greg's family, but apparently the author seems to be too scared to give the series a new lease of life.
  • Isaiah
    The fourteenth division in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Wrecking Ball by best-selling author, Jeff Kinney, is a striking add on to its shelf. It comes out as an unexpected turn for the Heffley family, as a distant family member sadly passes away, leading on into the story an even greater unexpected turn-they use the money to have an addition to their humble house. Greg Heffley is fully-fledged into this idea, but is it really what its cut to...
  • Ashley
    I hemmed and hawed about buying this book - I've kind of been contemplating purging some of my stuff, I don't really need to collect the Wimpy Kid books, and there's starting to be too many in this series that I don't even know if I overly care anymore. I don't know if those feelings were in the back of my mind while I was reading this, or if the books aren't up to the caliber of the earlier books, but I didn't love Wrecking Ball. I didn't find t...
  • Rahul
    3.5 stars My lack of attention during reading this, made it the most boring Wimpy kid book for me. Also apart from the typical greedy Greg adventures, the story is weak, that's what I feel.
  • Barbara
    This one is a 3.5 for me, and like other reviewers, I continue to be astonished at the realization that this is the FOURTEENTH book in the series and that I've been reading them for as long as I've been teaching college classes full time. There have been moments when I've wondered if author Jeff Kinney's creative well has run dry since he has covered some of the same topics all too often in some of the books. But I was pleasantly surprised to see...

    So funny! Love this series!
  • Fred Forbes
    The old "in for a penny, in for a pound". Started this series long ago and find it entertaining. Yes, I know it is for kids but for those of us with a sophomoric sense of humor, an appreciation for clever stories and the fun of seeing adult situations through the eyes of a kid, it is a fun read. You will enjoy seeing some of the issues you've had to wrestle with and glad to see they are universal. Well done, as usual.
  • Eoghan
    I thought it was a very good book and at the end it had a very good twist.
  • TrishaIyer
    I thought the new wimpy kid book was really good.Gregory and his family are thinking about moving. If you want to know if the Greg and his family will move or not you should read it and find out.

    Fun!Diary of a Wimpy Kid Day is fun! I love how Scholastic sends a big box to our school each year with all the pre-orders. Because of how things worked out this year, students were off and teachers were in workshops. I traveled to school thrice during the day to get my copy and prepare those for the students so they could conjole their parents to come in and pick up theirs. All for the love of reading!Greg's mother inherits some money. She decid...
  • Mr. Gottshalk
    I finished the latest installment in the series in less than a day! Its more of the same One unfortunate event leads to another thing which leads to another thing which leads to another thing. The funniest moment, for me, was when an obscure aunt dies, and the Heffleys go to the wrong funeral! There are some other laugh out loud moments. The book is very similar to all the others. By being so similar, it has many creative plot twists and moments ...
  • Sebastian Big Brain
    I think it was really good. I like the end a lot because i felt that it is funny in the books when things don't go the whey they are planned. That is what happend to the Heffley family and their house.

    When Gregs family unexpectedly inherits money from Aunt Rebas estate, they are all in a tizzy deciding what to do with the windfall. Of course, every family member has his own idea. But, since Gregs mom is the only one that ever wrote Aunt Reba a thank-you note (she says?!!), she gets to decide. So....mom dreams of a new bigger, modern kitchen. Actually Gregs on board with that idea, too. But, in true Heffley fashion renovation goes terribly awry...

    Yes, I am sixteen years old. Yes, I have read all of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. Yes, I received this book for Christmas, and heck yes, I enjoyed it immensely.

    I don't know what the hell is wrong with this website...why are u askin me to review before I even read it?
  • Maria
    It was good I liked the joke on the last page
  • Deep_Abyss
    Lets just say that this wasnt bad...it was okay. At least 94% of this book is about Gregs family wanting to rebuild their house and the crazy things that happen when construction starts. Also another portion is Greg and Rowley on their friendship because he might move. And a whole chapter is dedicated to Greg trying to sale his junk from a oversized closet. Just a summary of what mostly happens. No spoilers.This was a load of humor and trouble an...
