Publisher's Summary

In the most hotly-anticipated children's book release of the year, the globally best-selling and award-winning Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is back, in this hilarious audio edition, read by Dan Russell. Greg Heffley's on a losing streak. His best friend, Rowley Jefferson, has ditched him, and finding new friends in middle school is proving to be a tough task.

To change his fortunes, Greg decides to take a leap of faith and turn his decisions over to chance. Will a roll of the dice turn things around, or is Greg's life destined to be just another hard-luck story?

Amazing book bad reader

Would you listen to Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck again? Why?

This was a good book and I would highly recommend it for children.

What aspect of Dan Russell’s performance might you have changed?

His voice was a bit annoying but he had good expressions and tones.

Okay I guess

It’s okay but the reader is very American and can be quite hard to understand
