Book Review: Diary of a Wimpy Kid
diary of a wimpy kid, a novel in cartoons, #1 new york times best seller by jeff kinney
i just read the front cover of this book and my mom typed it in. this is a very good book. the book is exactly what it says. it's supposed to be a diary of... a wimpy kid! it's all written in sloppy printing with many doodles all over it. it's a funny book about a kid who has to go through middle school. he's this scrawny little boy named greg who can get wrestled down by a boy named fregley who's way nerdier than him, way smaller and a little bit crazy. greg and other wimpy kids get mixed up in school with these huge, mean bullies who are already shaving.
this is the beginning: "September, Tuesday. first of all let me get something straight. this is a journal. not a diary. i know what it says on the cover, but when my mom went out to buy this thing i specifically told her to get one that didn't say diary on it. great. all i need is for some jerk to catch me carrying this book around and get the wrong idea (imagine a doodled picture of greg writing in his diary while a bully punches him to the ground and calls him sissy)."
i recommend this book. there's comedy, romance, drama and action. ok, so maybe it doesn't have romance, drama or action, but it is funny. and i guess he does have to run away from a bully now and then and i guess that would be counted as action.
i'll use a 5-point rating system for book reviews, 5 being the best. and i'll give diary of a wimpy kid a 5 and 1/9th!
