"The real and deeper appeal of Greg's story is the unapologetic honesty of his adolescence; he comes across as a real kid, and his story is one that will appeal to all those real kids who feel just like him." (Booklist)
An excellent and very funny story, had my 10 year old giggling at numerous times throughout, he loves these audio books and this is just one on his way through the delightful series. He listens to them on car journeys and also at quiet times in the morning or evening on wind down before bedtime. He then has the delight of telling me the story of what happens to the character Greg. If you are thinking of getting this for your youngster then do it :-)
I am disappointed with this audio file - not because of the quality of the recording, but because it doesn't match the book word for word. I specifically bought this book for my son (who is dyslexic) to encourage him to read along independently, and in order to do that it needs to match the written book, but within minutes we had a problem .. pages of chapter one were omitted from the audio file, meaning that he had lost his place and couldnt without my help finding it again (20 pages further on!!!). Because of this, it is unlikely we will continue to use this audio file as we had hoped as it is more likely to turn my son off reading rather than encourage it, as it will be confusing - as if reading wasnt confusing enough when you are dyslexic ... rubbish.
