Book Review #169 - Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Diary of a Wimpy Kid #1) by Jeff Kinney

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, #1) 

Boys don’t keep diaries—or do they?

The launch of an exciting and innovatively illustrated new series narrated by an unforgettable kid every family can relate to

It’s a new school year, and Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into middle school, where undersized weaklings share the hallways with kids who are taller, meaner, and already shaving. The hazards of growing up before you’re ready are uniquely revealed through words and drawings as Greg records them in his diary.

In book one of this debut series, Greg is happy to have Rowley, his sidekick, along for the ride. But when Rowley’s star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend’s newfound popularity to his own advantage, kicking off a chain of events that will test their friendship in hilarious fashion.

My Rating: 5/5

I watched the movie before I read this book. The reason for this was because I wasn't sure I would like the book as it is a children's book.

I read this book in less than a hour. I found it to be very funny with an interesting concept and intriguing characters.

Every single character in this book had depth and the pictures depicted throughout gave you a visual idea of what they looked like.

This is one of those books that children will get the most enjoyment out of reading, but there is something there that adults will enjoy as well.
