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.

I love diary of a wimpy kid because it is soooooooooo funny. It's also very realistic.It's a overall perfect book for any body to love.
Mainly a sci-fi, and fantasy junkie who also enjoys horror, whodunnits, and books about animals and sports. I'm also an amateur filmmaker.
I was really impressed and surprised by this. It's a short read, but a very gratifying one. It's a diary about a few months or so in the life of a middle school boy. Very insightful, funny, and entertaining. I loved it.
I am brutally honest. Popular, love everything they read, reviewers are scared to go neg. and risk their ranking. It's your money!!!
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.
I didnt read the print version. i just thought my son would enjoy listening to stories about another little boy. BOY did he!
My son keeps pulling the punch line, "Zoo We Mama"... I dont get it, but he and his little sister think its pretty funny.
He had far too many.
It makes my son laugh ALOT.
I am on my 3rd time listening to this book. We are ordering the next book soon, but i cant get over how much my son loves it.
Kept my 7 and 8 year old kids quiet in the car for 1.5 hours!
You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
My kids and I listened to this book and the reader just didn't capture the essence of the story. Zooey Mamma!!
Suddenly car trips aren't long enough for my kids (8 and 10 year old boys) because they want to continue listening to this series of books on their ipods.
From Wilm., De. Love reading and audiobooks. Other interests include cooking, attending cultural events, my dogs, birding, music and movies.
Not at all what I was expecting, much more. Better than I was expecting. Received as a freebie, but now I'm intrigued to delve deeper in the series. Very cute story, different twist. Also , want to watch the movie..
"Dairy of a wimpy kid"
It is funny,
It will be good for 7,8,9 year olds
Greg is a bit funny,a bit silly!
Rodrick is mean,silly,funny!
Amazing i loved the story sooo much!!!! Rowley is funny and Greg's life is like mine! Could have been a little longer though...
Although the story is very popular, mostly with boys, the American narrator lets down this audio recording.
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...
