It was really funny. I know. I'm way too old for these books but screw that. XD Also, there will be more books! I have been reading these books for so long, even if I'm too old for them. They make me laugh so hard, and this can't be the last one. View all comments.
Jul 13, Archit Ojha rated it it was amazing Shelves: ebooks. One more in the series. Seriously, this guy has a lot of ammunition. Drawing sketches page after page, book after book, pulling off anecdotes at will - he's got to have a Hero Point. Our Greg is growing up and with that comes the decision making. Well we can argue that he did not wish to grow up on his defense but that thing which stops ageing is yet to be invented.
And summer school is not a solution either. Rolled and rolled in gags when he draws out the books hid by his mom. Hey, R La-la-lala! Hey, Ritu, we might stumble into such books in Sam's closet instead. Belter it was the way he draws up the solution to making so much decisions - the 8 ball Learning the adult world and its double standard way of handling things, Greg discovers that humans never grow up, they just learn how to conceal the paint on the wall.
The wall itself remains the same. This guy, Kenny, is taking no prisoners! Another 5 star performance. View all 12 comments. Read this book was fun for me, as children's books with jokes make me forget about life's problems.
Thank you, Jeff Kinney! The book's existence was announced at the end of the previous book in the series, The Third Wheel. May 06, Bookworm rated it it was amazing. This will possibly be the death of me. View all 30 comments. Jul 25, Pooja rated it it was amazing Shelves: pages. Greg is getting older now. He has many jobs to think of, but he is pretty shocked to see his bestfriend having a girlfriend! That freak him out and he stops spending time with him or rather I say his bestfriend stops spending time with Greg.
I thought somewhere in the middle of the book, great things will start happenning to Greg but he attracts the bad fortune on his own. The author takes the mandane, day to day stuffs and with Greg, he presents is with such eloquence, leaving the reader laughin Greg is getting older now.

Archit, Greg, in this book reminded me of Eva, our doggie. No, seriously, with you spending time with me, she must feel alone like Greg did at the start of the book.
I'm still laughing thinking of it. View 2 comments. Nov 21, Matthew rated it really liked it. Eight books in and still good. Kinney has placed Greg Heffley in the same temporal suspension that all great cartoon characters suffer through.
Like Charlie Brown or Eric Cartman, he will never grow older. And this is good, because that means Greg never needs to learn from his mistakes. And that means these books will always be funny. This book is the same as all the other ones—Greg misinterprets situations, tries to avoid doing work, hates school—but it is still all new and surprising.
One of the great and consistently funny things in these books, and especially here, is how adults are portrayed. These are all hilariously misguided attempts to ease kids through emotional trauma--well-meaning, but entirely tone-deaf. View all 7 comments.
Nov 24, Ethan S rated it really liked it. Jeff Kinney has done it yet again. Rowley got a girlfriend and she thinks all the things Rowley and Greg do together are immature. She's taking all the attention away from Greg, and shaping Rowley into something that he's not at the same time!
Greg misses all the things Rowley used to do for him Rowley use to walk to school with greg and he looked out for dog poop, and carry Greg's bags. Now Rowley walks to school with, Abigail Jeff Kinney has done it yet again. Now Rowley walks to school with, Abigail, his girlfriend, so Greg is now lacking the poop-scouting and the bag-carrying.
Greg quickly finds a solution to his lack of baggage transportation

No talk in this installment about how Greg's keeping this diary and how it helps him. But he does join the yearbook committee and learn how to manipulate pictures on his computer -- in an unflattering way, of course -- but it may encourage kids to get creative with fun photo software. It's a mixed bag of messages. Hard Luck is heavy on the potty humor, for one.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck by Jeff Kinney - review
When Rowley gets a girlfriend, he ditches Greg. Greg now considers that finding new friends in middle school is hard, so he considers and thinks about what is going on around him, and then one day he finds a "magic" eight ball. He uses it to make all his decisions. He finds his mom's secret place, in which he finds out his mom's secret weapon: he finds all of these books of how his mom made him do what she wanted to do. Greg also joins the yearbook, and makes little funny twists. Then Abigail suddenly breaks up with Rowley to get the attention of her last boyfriend, Michael Sampson.
