Guest Post -- Review : Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last StrawTitle: Diary of a wimpy kid The Last Straw
Author: Jeff Kinney
Publisher: Amulet books
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Main Character: Greg

I was just hoping that the person who took the dictionary would hurry up and come clean, because I had two cartons of chocolate milk for lunch.

Greg says this when somebody takes the dictionary from the teacher. Whoever took the dictionary would stay in for recess. This is the third book of the Diary of a Wimpy kid series. Jeff Kinney has written more books like, Diary of a wimpy kid , Diary of a wimpy kid Rodrick Rules, Diary of a wimpy kid The Last Straw, Diary of a wimpy kid Do-it yourself, Diary of a wimpy kid Dog Days.

This book is about Greg and what he does on his summer vacation and school. In this book Greg has a lot of problems to take care of like he wants to be popular. But he gets embarrassed a lot in this book by his little brother Manny. He gets locked out of a hotel room one time in his underwear, and had to hide behind the vending machines. Greg sometimes pulls pranks on people and sometimes he gets fooled. Don’t you wonder if he will fix everything that goes wrong ? Will he be more and more embarrassed?

The main character in this book is Greg, the most sensitive Heffley of all. Manny is the youngest Heffley and the most annoying one. Rodrick is the laziest and not-so-smart Heffley. Greg’s Mom is the smartest and least focused Heffley. Rowley Jefferson is the second weirdest friend of Greg’s, the first is Fregley.

My opinion of the book is that it was very good, and very interesting because when Jeff Kinney writes about what happens in middle school it is fun to hear. Like I said Jeff Kinney is the best author for surprises. So it was a very surprising book. In this series Greg is very gullible. But he is still the laziest person in their family besides Rodrick. I think Greg gets the most embarrassed in his family. But he is the funniest of all. With the unluckiest life in the world. Greg is smart in different ways and in some ways he is really dumb.

I recommend this book to anybody who likes to hear about what happens in a boys life in middle school.
