The highly anticipated sequel to the #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling book!
Secrets have a way of getting out, especially when a diary is involved.
Whatever you do, don’t ask Greg Heffley how he spent his summer vacation, because he definitely doesn’t want to talk about it.
As Greg enters the new school year, he’s eager to put the past three months behind him . . . and one event in particular.
Unfortunately for Greg, his older brother, Rodrick, knows all about the incident Greg wants to keep under wraps. But secrets have a way of getting out . . . especially when a diary is involved.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules chronicles Greg’s attempts to navigate the hazards of middle school, impress the girls, steer clear of the school talent show, and most important, keep his secret safe.
"Rodrick Rules (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, #2)" Reviews
I read this book for two reasons: I needed to get my book count up for the reading challenge, and reading We Need To Talk About Kevin immediately after No Country For Old Men was too much darkness, even for me. I picked this up from son's shelf, because I had enjoyed the first book: my son was flabbergasted, and my wife made fun of me, saying she'd give me Peter Pan next. But I am glad I did pick it up, however.
Greg Heffley is a loser: bullied by his elder brother and followed about by his tattletale younger one, ignored by the pretty girls and able to befriend only the unspeakable Rowley, he must be justified in feeling that life is unjust to him. He pours all this righteous indignation into the "journal" (he will kill himself before he calls it a "diary"!) his mother forces him to write. The result is HILARIOUS.
Jeff Kinney is a truly comic writer who has mastered the strength of the understatement. Greg's voice throughout the book is a sort of sardonic monotone-one is reminded of those sad-faced clowns who will have you in stitches. The journal is pieced together in little vignettes, like a series of connected jokes-and the punchline is often a cartoon. (I feel that authors should use illustrations more often, even in serious novels. In Vanity Fair, Thackeray's illustrations are as famous as his words.)
Greg, in this book, has grown up a little from his previous outing. His sarcasm has taken on an edge, and the portraits he paints of his Dad and Mom are less than flattering. Yet, they are lovable, all the same.
Jeff Kinney has written a book that can be enjoyed by children and adults alike.
Recommended whenever one needs a mood uplift!
Ok, so I read this book to see why my students seem to love it so.
Now, I'm all for silly humor. I can understand that, but I don't get the attraction for this book. I hated it. I finished it in a little over a day, but never did I stop wishing for it to end. I think the characters were horrible; the people in the book did mean things to each other; every person in the book was inconsiderate to each other; etc. I really could go on! I know I'm going to hurt some feelings next week when I report to my students my feelings about this book, but it really wasn't good. Was there really even a storyline?
This book is great. Because it is base on a true movie. But my faviorite part was when Rodick (older brother of greg).Made a big party and greg had to help Rodick pick up the mess but Rodick and greg was lucky at first. ut then
I swear this was funny 😂😂😂 hell a lot funny than the first one! So it was about Gregory and his relationship with his brother Rodrick, and even though my relation with my brother was never the same but this! This was so funny.
The last page with the scientific experiment on plants and black pepper made me crack up!
This book I can't describe:D
I read it so slow, so the laugh doesn't end of my day:)
Just a little something:
-dad said to Rodrick: well, for starters Abraham Lincon didin't write "to kill a mockingbird":D
I really recommend this book to everyone wanna have a relaxing time.
