Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed debut author Jeff Kinney brilliantly re-creates the typical humor and logic of middle-school boys sidling into adolescence.

Sixth grader Greg Heffley doesn't understand his annoying younger brother, obnoxious older one, or well-meaning parents. But he knows enough to record his daily thoughts in a manly journal - not some girly diary. In a unique novel brimming with laugh-out-loud moments, Greg chronicles his first turbulent year of middle school.

    "Irritating narrator"

    Although the story is very popular, mostly with boys, the American narrator lets down this audio recording.

    "DJ 100811"

    I haven't laughed so much in a long time! It gives you a glimpse into the mind of an early teen boy and having been brought up with 3 sisters, I can now vaguely understand the teen boys I teach...oh the angsts and thought processes...if you want to 'go there', listen to it yourself...

    "You need the cartoons!"

    My kids love this book, so we got it as an audiobook for a car trip. The trouble is that the cartoons are an integral part of the story. Without them, you lose some of the humor. It would be perfect for reading along, if your kids already have the book, but there is definitely something missing when you just listen to the audiobook without the visuals.

    Story
    "JUICE"

    BACK UP FRIENDS
    I guess I am hard to please? I don't like a story where the main character is perfect, but this character seems a little more selfish then the average. His motivation seems to be, to get away with what ever he can, as long as it suits his own needs. I don't know if the author is expecting the reader to see the wrong and understand what the Wimpy Kid does not, or what? He lets his best friend take the rap for something he did. He does not want to sweat?What middle school kid worries about sweating? Two characters use back up friends to make the other jealous, with no concern about the back friends' feelings.

    It is not all bad, don't get that impression. There are some parts that are laugh out loud funny. My favorite parts were the thank you notes and the mother punishing a child for having a magazine with a scantly clad woman on the cover. Middle School life seems very realistic. The parents are funny and are good, except I did not understand why they let there kid out past 10:30 on a weekend night, it didn't chive with how they were portrayed in the rest of the book.

    I thought the narrator was very good, listen to the sample to see what you think.

    Story
    "Mixed feelings about this book"

    Let me first say that my daughter and I both had mixed feelings regarding this book. Here is the short description...the main character is an athletically challenged middle schooler who is trying to get through middle school and avoid being teased and/or bullied. Much of the story is recognizable to any person who went to school in America. As such, there are many funny points in the story, although some of the humor is along the lines of bathroom humor, it is mostly harmless. There were two things that we did not like about the novel. First , the main character is not really all that nice. He often throws his friends under the bus to save his own butt. Second, we did not like how this book also seemed to almost condone the bullying or at least tried to present bullying as an inevitable fact of life that all kids must go through as a sort of Rite of Passage to adulthood. The bullies themselves seem to be presented as good kids, who are just a bit rambunctious. I personally reject this interpretation of bullies, while I don't necessarily think they should be thrown in jail, I certainly don't think it is all harmless and the bullied should just learn how to deal with it. The book presents the bullies as the cool kids and the bullied as the dweebs and dorks. I don't like the premise that the bullies are the "cool kids", and neither did my daughter. I certainly don't like the idea of sending the message to my daughter that sets an equivalency of cool kids to bullies. I don't think I will be getting her the rest of these books for this reason.

    Perhaps I am a bit over critical regarding this and I should not take this book so seriously, kids are able to differentiate stores from real life. My daughter did think the book was funny at times, and she did finish it. I could not finish it, I did not like bullies when I was a kid, and I like them even less as I contemplate them bullying my children or worse, finding out that I raised one.

    "My kids and I LOVED it!"

    This book kept my 5 & 8 year olds entertained. We listened to it while driving around town and to and from school. They got so into the book they requested that we finish listening to it while sitting around the table after dinner. I was thoroughly entertained by this book as it brought the horribly faulty reasoning abilities of a teenage boy comically back to my memory. Laughed out loud in nearly every chapter.

    "Use both!"

    I use both the audio book and the actual book to help my son learn to read. He is autistic and he loves these books, but he has a hard time reading, so I bought him an i-pod and started downloading books he loves. Then I buy the actual book and he gets to listen to the books while he reads them.

    It has been tremendously helpful! I highly suggest doing this will all books for kids of all ages, if they are having a difficult time reading.

    "What's the big deal?"
    Any additional comments?

    I thought that the book was performed well enough, could have had some more expression.
    But what's with the story?! I did not care for the 'Wimpy Kid' at all. I though that this would be the story of a Wimpy kid and how he overcame his shortcomings. Instead, it's about a 'poor me' brat. Really no value for kids in this book, it teaches them the wrong way to behave.

    This book is great for kids and adults alike and has a great story. I wish I could have seen the pictures and I think that would have been a great feature to add to books like this. Maybe on the next update? Think about it,autable besides that,it's an amazingly fundamentally lovingly thoughtfully relatable wimpy awesome book thank you,John Kenny.
