I loved this. I was in stitches as I read it. It’s a really quick read, I actually forgot how quick and easy these are to read. The writing is simple and it’s a very current book. A lot of the jokes are very 2011 meaning kids of today are going to feel included but I’m not sure what future generations will think of Poundstretcher, TOWIE (The Only Way Is Essex) and Justin Bieber. Actually, I’m so ashamed to live in the UK knowing that

This is the second book by Tim Collins I have read. In many ways I enjoyed it even more than the first. The humor is very British, the wit cutting and the delivery near perfect. Collins delivers a hilarious book and a wonderfully cynical look at the mythology of the Vampire vs. Werewolf antagonism. Combine that with a few clan members of each species trying to form a commune-like peace movement to stop the impending battle that will launch a worldwide war is nothing but nonstop fun.

Exciting book with a hilarious ending. Luke, a 15 year old straight A student, gets bitten by a werewolf and it turns all his studies upside-down. Instead of getting straight A's he now gets all C's because he has to go to werewolf training every day. After that a battle with a vampire makes him late to his exams and that doesn't end well. Recommended to kids 12 and above who liked Jeff Kinney; it's Wimpy Kid with a 'bite'!

A good read which goes in to a lot of detail in the life of the main character. the only fault I really have with the book is that it starts a few days after the character is attacked and not straight after. apart from this it was a very enjoyable book and I would recommend it to any fan of werewolves.

Aslında bu kitabı bugünlerde okumak gibi bir düşüncem yoktu ama okuma hedefimi gerçekleştirememe endişesinden dolayı sonuncuyu kolay bir kitap seçip garantiye alayım dedim. :D 2014 Reading Challenge'ımı da bu kitapla tamamlamış oldum böylece. Kitap eğlenceliydi. Zaten Saftirik Vampirin Günlüğünü de sevmiştim

This was a 99p kindle book and I really enjoyed it. Kind of like Adrian Mole, I guess. Really easy and quick read and an interesting subject (werewolves and vampires)

i really liked the vampire books and liked the character. however the werewolf one i struggled to like. maybe because i cant relate to the character as ive never fussed about revision or A*'s

I was looking for diary stories for my class and this and the Wimpy Vampire popped up on the library list. So I had to read them.

An Adrian Mole style story, nothing really too complex in the story, a few laughs here and there, probably won't read any more of the series
