To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have been a Wimpy kid fan for about 5 years now. Always look out for the new book. And Jeff Kinny never disappoints. Books form 1-15 are huge masterpieces 16 was not that very appealing but still was fine. But after reading 17 I think he has not put any effort in making laughter guaranteed or atleast something like a catastrophe, adventure, old incidents or anything. When I saw the title, I was pretty excited to see that Rodrick would be in it but I have to say "Rodrick Rules" was far better than this one. The whole book even though just a little twist in the end was obvious what's going to happen next. Talking about characters Greg and Rodrick are not passing the same vibe they used to. Rodrick seems helpless and lame not even energetic or passionate about loded diper. Greg was always ready with his wild and wired opinions but he acts like just a narrator and seems to be lost. Each book is supposed to show Greg's POV and that's what the readers enjoy. I just felt the book was just forced to strech and add a little twist in the end which even felt left hanging. I just hope Jeff Kinny doesn't does the same for the upcoming books.
This series has become a holiday staple for my son who grew up loving the books. My son pointed out how the series should come to an end after book 18 because it’s not evolving and still maintains a narcissistic tone. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all for growth but after reading these books I have to agree, Greg has his own agenda going on with little concern for gaining empathy
I have the entire collection of diary of a wimpy kid that I ordered from Amazon and I have never seen anything like this. This book is weirdly long which I’ve seen other reviews which is actually the real product and delivered in a good shape. Very bad experience from Amazon overall
This book is good, but the page quality is terrible. This book is also very long unlike the other books. This delivery totally looks like it is delivered from a local store. The rest wimpy kid books are in normal size. Also the colour of the book is purple ish. Not expected
Usually, I love the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, and they're great, but this one was all just down hill. It wasn't about Greg at all, if I wanted to read about Rodrick and his band, I would want a different series. There was almost no funny parts, and there was absolutely nothing about his family. It totally differed from what we know diary of a wimpy as. Definitely the worst book of the series.
