Book Review #264 - The Last Straw (Diary of a Wimpy Kid #3) by Jeff Kinney

The Last Straw (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, #3) 

Let’s face it: Greg Heffley will never change his wimpy ways. Somebody just needs to explain that to Greg’s father. You see, Frank Heffley actually thinks he can get his son to toughen up, and he enlists Greg in organized sports and other "manly” endeavors. Of course, Greg is able to easily sidestep his father’s efforts to change him. But when Greg’s dad threatens to send him to military academy, Greg realizes he has to shape up . . . or get shipped out.

My Rating: 4/5

I read this book as fast as I read the others in the series. Once I start reading these books I tend to finish them in one sitting. 

The main reason why I was unable to give this book five stars was because there was less stuff happening than in the previous two books. 

Another reason I didn't like this book as much as the previous two was because my two favourite characters Rodrick and Rowley were barely present. 

The humour was still at the same quality as the others and as long as that remains, I will continue to love this series.
