Reviews The Meltdown (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, #13)

  • Sheri
    Greg, along with neighborhood friends and enemies, transforms winter’s cold travails into an epic snowball battle. Greg’s escapades are entertaining as always, but I found this installment to be not as clever and amusing as previous books. It started slow and sort of meandered along until finally reaching an action-packed conclusion. I prefer more action and laughs throughout, but kids will get a kick out of this one, especially the all-out s...

    So Diary of a Wimpy Kid is just that one series that I can't stop checking if they have new books, and reading them over and over again. It isn't one of those Harry Potter books, but it's one that I can't seem to let go! I am so excited for this new book, you have no idea! #teenagerstillinlovewithkidbooksisperfectlynormal

    How well did I relate with Greg in this book! We share the same type of dislike for winters. Ahhh, winter please leave! I so wish to hibernate like Greg wanted to!
  • Jessica
    Greg suffers through a winter that starts out unseasonably warm and then takes a cold, dark turn. As per the usual, Kinney nails life in middle school, the smells, the general weirdness of your fellow students, unreasonable parents and teachers. And then, of course, it all ramps up into something cuckoo-banana-pants!

    Better than usual, when i look back to the others, this book is better. Mostly this series is boring and lacking any action. Greg acts like he is supreme and that everyone else is moron (including Rowly).

    5 Snowflakes ❄❄❄❄❄As always, a delight! Full review to come, but probably not until after Christmas. 🎅🎄

    Jeff Kinney does it again!Greg never ceases to amuse me. I loved the Meltdown and can't wait for the next book!I always thought that Greg was in highschool because of all he books in the series but he's in middle school. That's like 4 books per school year. I can't wait till we get a book where Greg goes to high school. I think that would be hilarious! Overall 4 stars!

    2018-11-28 the most incredible books I have ever readed my favorite part is from page 150 and forward (the war between kids of surrey street)
  • Ryk Stanton
    Some of these books are good, others not so much. This one had a few laughs but it was not as good as others I have read in the series.
  • Barbara
    This third installment of the popular graphic novel series focuses on winter. While those of us who live in snow-filled areas will probably be quick to relate to some of what he describes, others from warmer, sunnier climes might not be able to do so. While I liked it well enough to finish it, I wish that it had tackled some issues and been more than a series of vignettes about going to school during cold weather and building up to a big fight be...

    Loved the epic snowball war! These books are hilarious and great for kids.
  • Sophia Ismaa
    I’m not usually one to get myself a copy of a new release and I haven’t done so since the Harry Potter series concluded, but I’ve been enjoying this series so much that I had to get a copy of this latest release ASAP!I would say 2/3 of the book is very funny. The final third consists of extreme snowball warfare (more intense than paint balling) between Lower Street and Upper Street kids which eventually becomes one where other kids in the a...
  • Fred Forbes
    Yes, I know its a kid's book but having read the previous 12, I guess I am "in for a penny, in for a pound"! Fun break from my more serious reading I found this one, devoted to "more snow than normal" and the "tyranny" of the all girl safety patrol and life in general from the perspective of a middle school lad. Appeals to my sophomoric sense of humor and memories of those years and the characters I grew up with. Have a good time - great mental p...

    just your usual diary of wimpy kid stuff and remains a fun read. Helped me with the slump!
  • Ashley
    My lowest-rated Wimpy Kid book ? Say it ain't so! Alas, though I laughed a couple times (and teased my boyfriend for his treating of cough drops like candy, too,) this book seemed to be lacking in the humour. It just didn't seem as funny as some of the other books. Also, has there always been so much EMPHASIS using CAPSLOCK on SO MANY words in PAST books? EVERY page had AT LEAST two EMPHASIZED words, and I think that's me LOW-BALLING. That REALLY...
  • i_like_big_books
    can i know why i cant read this book/ find it when it came out like 5 months!!! all there is a 15 pg sample. i feel so cheated rn this was supposed to b my last read of the yr bc daughter of the burning city has more words and looks more complex for my currently dumb brain to handle.
  • Melissa
    5 out of 5 starsNo matter how old I get, I will never stop reading the new books that are added to this series.
  • Shishir
    I am going to buy this book (real) and totally recommend it to friends (sarcasm)

    not nearly good as other books of this series. I love this series from childhood. I'm really disappointed with this one.

    Another story about self thinking Greg Heffley who wants to make it out of a grueling winter 🥶 and an ugly neighborhood snowball ❄ ⛄ war (Grade: B+).

  • Logan Johnson
    This has got to be my favorite entry into the Wimpy Kid series so far. Mainly because I'm jealous Greg because of that snowball fight, that was epic!! P.S. i read this book again for my Goodreads reading log.
  • Nina Borden
    can this like never end?I really enjoy reading this kind of books, they make me feel young again but they seem like a big enjoyable waste of time to me
  • Arun Sasidharan
    A fun and comic read. Had a few good laughs. Greg Heffley's character is quite relatable and his narration makes the story all the more enjoyable.
  • Kelly
    I’ve been reading this series since my kids were little. They are fun, quick reads.
  • Dom
    very funny!!!!
  • Emma
    I finished it super quickly because I was riding in the car to Iowa City and back.
