OMG, if you have not read Diary of A Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney, and have an hour to spare, I suggest you pick up this book. The main character is Greg, he’s the middle child with two brothers, and one best friend whom he doesn’t seem to like all that much. He’s funny, he likes the ladies, he wants to be popular. Sound like your typical middle schooler!
Diary of a Wimpy Kid contains simple drawings, the art is not perfect. However, it is a fast read and a silly romp recommended for a stressful day. It is not the book for someone who wants a deep meaningful read. I guess some people may dislike this book because Greg isn’t a role model. In fact, he’s self-serving, lazy, and kind of a jerk. Personally, I think he is the typical middle schooler. Aside from all of those terrible qualities, he’s actually quite funny.
My favorite part of the book was the cheese touch, where this one kid touches a piece of months old moldy cheese, and then has the cheese touch so people try to avoid him so they don’t get cheese touch either.
While reading this book, I recommend you drink some apple juice, as I think it will be gentle on your nose when you snort it out.
