Ramón de Ocampo's spot-on narration enhances Kinney's authentic portrait of adolescent angst and madcap hilarity.

"Diary of a Wimpy Kid has been wildly popular, and this sequel should be an equally big hit with ... anyone looking for a funny book." (Library Journal)
That it was about Rodrick(mostly)
all of them were memorable.
That he enunciated clearly.
All Rodrick, all hatred
He started listening to this book series when he was 7 and he listened to all but the most recent two books on audio book. Now he can read the books and has read them all even after listening to them all. The narrator does a great job on these books!
the whole series
he has energy in his voice and brings the story alive
I really enjoyed the first book, partially because Ramone de Ocampo does such a brilliant job as narrator. And he does a great job in this sequel, but I find I have more and more difficulty trying to sympathize with the main character. Okay, he was a whiny little brat in the first book, but the schtick starts to run thin in the second. I read in a review of the first book that it really helped to see the drawings that accompanied the text in the book version -- I didn't know that there were drawings!
Kids may enjoy the book -- and there were some really good moments in it, but adults will tire of this character quickly.
