Reviews Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid

  • Emily
    I was hoping that this would be a more, well, awesome and friendly book than the Wimpy Kid books but, alas, it was not. Instead, it was a chronicle of Greg's bullying from Rowley's perspective, and Rowley does a lot of minimizing and excusing. It was heartbreaking and very, very real. Like, jeez, this is a seriously abusive relationship. Are there funny parts? Yes, actually, especially if cringe humor doesn't make you feel overwhelming secondhand...

    This book was a steaming pile of moldy cheese slices. What a train-wreck. I guess Jeff Kinney has gotten to a point in his career where neither he nor his publisher care what he writes; they just know that money will be made off of it, thanks to the success of Diary of a Wimpy Kid (a series that also needs to be laid to rest, but that’s a different story). This book seemed like it was put together the night before the draft was due to the publi...

    Rowley needs to love himself.It's no fun reading about how toxic a friend Greg is to Rowley. Greg's never been a saint, but with the focus solely on Rowley, we see how much of a butthole Greg is on a daily basis. Greg, until you do right by Rowley, nothing's going to work for you.Also, for a book about Rowley, there's too much Greg in it. On the other hand, who is Rowley without Greg. It might've been more fun if the book explored Rowley begrudgi...

    I went into this really excited to read about Rowley and the things that go through his sweet little head, but instead I got a book about what a jerk Greg is. And, like, I knew he wasn't the best role model or well-behaved kid, but his books were funny, so I overlooked it. Not that Rowley's "diary" wasn't funny - I laughed out loud plenty, and enjoyed this book more than the most recent Wimpy Kid book. But it was also a little sad to see Rowley g...

    When my son was in grammar school, he read and reread the Wimpy Kid series. I was passing by a book display, it was the introduction of the latest installment of the series. The perspective of Rowley, who is Greg's best friend, was explored. I was hoping for a fun read and more escapades between the two friends. But, instead, the reader actually got to explore how Greg is just an ordinary manipulator and bully. I thought there would be some life ...

    For the past few months, this awaited book had many in excited anticipation, had some shaking their heads and rolling their eyes. Why, you ask? Because this book is the story of Greg and Rowley’s friendship, told from a fresh perspective: Rowley’s.This book is written more as a recollection of happenings from Rowley and Greg’s friendship, rather than a plotted story. Rowley tells readers how he and Greg became friends, shares some good and ...

    After reading umpteen diaries of Greg, it was a welcome change to see things from Rowley's point of view . I thoroughly enjoyed his way of telling things..and yes, Rowley is an awesome friendly kid indeed.

    I really liked this book and I enjoyed reading the untold stories of Greg but I'd expected it to be slightly longer.
