It was okay... Definitely not as funny as the first ones.
I just finished reading Diary of a Wimpy kid: The Third Wheel by Jeff Kinney. This book is hilarious and romantic all at the same time. It starts out In an ordinary life in middle school and then to really gets to the point. Greg (the main character) has been trying to work up the nerve to ask out his biggest crush Holly Hills to the dance, but Greg's WAY to nervous to ask her out and the only problem is........ well, If you want to know what happens after that I can't tell you so I guess...more
LRN: Four and a half.
Mum: You pretty much love Greg Heffley with all your heart; why the missing half-star?
LRN: The thing is, it's about love, and that makes me aggghhhh. Any story that involves love makes me kind of crazy.
Mum: Oh, so does Greg get some smooches?
LRN: Not exactly, but his friend does.
Mum: Which one? The skinny one?
LRN: No, I mean Rowley.
Mum: Anything else about this story?
LRN: The thing is, he gets a date, but really Rowley gets it.
Mum: Oh, so like a middl...more

- the first 5 books' box set lived right on my desk close to bed till I finished them all
- I ordered and read the 6th book as soon as I finished the set

Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury: I intend to prove that the book “Diary of a Wimpy Kid the Third Wheel,” by Jeff Kinney is a very good book at telling many different sub-plots besides the main one. However, there were areas in this book that were not quite as good at giving an ending or a reasonable ending to all of the sub-plots. Narrated by a first-person narrator, Greg Hefley is a Junior High School student who is having some trouble with love. The main issue in this book is the Valentine’s...more

And, of course, Greg's includes the fear-inducing Valentine's Day Dance - a chance to sweat over who to ask to it, how to ask them and then how to make it through the night without fainting, puking or worse, stepping on your date's toes and ending all thoughts of romance right there.
But lucky for Greg, he and his best friend Rowley are in the same boat...or are they?
Greg scores a date to th...more
Funny, smart and just adorable, Jeff Kinney develops another perfect book while fans hope that Greg Heffley will not grow up--or at least not that fast so fans could still have a childhood in their adulthood.
