Interesting. I finished it reluctantly (because I'm for sure going to read book four [but will probably stop there]) but am glad I did. It was annoying, irritating, (seemingly) cliched, more annoying, and then, at the end (beyond the big reveal), impressive. There's a whole "how did they do that?" reaction, a "where did that come from?" Not saying it's the best book ever, or executed a huge literary mind-fuck, but definitely a bit more thought-provoking than expected, and more original. These bo ...more

This book is a really cool book. I like how you can see the point of view of Rafe's sister Georgia and Rafe himself in his other books. It's pretty funny and it's a decent read. I would recommend it to kids ages 7-13. All of you should read it

My Brother is a Big Fat Liar is all about Georgia and her trouble making brother, Rafe. Georgia is very smart and witty young girl. Her brother is the complete opposite. Rafe has recently switched schools and Georgia will be attending his old school. When she gets there she declares that she will be a king at this school. When she gets there she realizes how hard it is going to be to replace Rafe’s black marks with her gold. If that isn’t bad enough Rafe sneakily signs up her musically ungifted ...more

..........................................
Deși mi-am dat tot interesul și am citit fiecare volum din serie, nu am râs, nici măcar zâmbit, nici măcar o singură dată. Patterson nu are simțul umorului. Nu înțeleg de unde nebunia cu cărțile scrise de el dar glumițele pe care acesta le încearcă sunt acel gen de umor pe care-l vezi în comedioarele de doi lei care nu niciodată ajung în cinematograf. Pur și simplu îngrozitor de anost și lipsit d

I loved this book. I think that this book is very funny and is a good book to read for fun. I would recommend this book to my friends because it has a lot of hummer. If you like comedy books than I think that you would love this book.

This book is about this girl named Georgia and she is about to go to middle school where her brother went. Her brother is named Rafe, and he was horrible. He would skip classes, he would talk back to every one, and he would do much more. All of the kids hated him th

This book is really good and it brings laughter to me. This book can relate to other people who are attending middle school because of the embarrassing moments and hard decisions that are made. I like this book a lot and it's very funny and interesting and oddly weird but still entertaining. I recommend this book for people who are in middle school and want to read about something fun, interesting, weird, and funny.

As if I could love James Patterson any more!!! It is amazing the versatility he shows with his YA book series and I am head over heels in love with it. What better way for a teacher to create life long readers than to introduce students to an author that they can grow with all the way into adulthood? I have loved reading this series and my students follow my lead.

Georgia Katchadorian the sister of Rafe Katchadorian started school in HVMS. All that Georgia wanted was to be a popular girl in school. But, nobody likes Georgia because she is the sister of the trouble maker. So Georgia tries her best to make friends. Then she became friends with a not so popular girl called Rhonda. This book is about perseverance, being yourself and finding the right friend.

The characters are Rafe, Mom, Grandma, Georgia. Its about Georgia life at Hills Village middle school how Rafe made it hard for her because his bad reputation. I conclude that Georgia will love Hills Village in 7th grade.

I think that this book was very interesting because instead of writing the story in her brothers perspective they did it in the sisters to kind of switch it. I thought it was very funny and that i can relate to it.

I thought this book was great. I love this series too. I like how the author put the book in a different person's point of view. This time, it's in Rafe's sister's point of view, not Rafe's.

This book is mainly about Georgia ( The main character ) and Georgia’s brother Rafe’s life. Georgia does not like her brother because of 3 reasons. 1. He is always being really mean to Georgia. 2. He always lie to her. 3. Because of his naughty behavior the school thinks that Georgia is also that naughty so everyone doesn’t really like Georgia. So that is why she hates his brother.

Georgia is in a band group with her friends. But when Rafe heard their music he thought that they stink. he told t

This was...interesting. I am used to Rafe’s story, and I’m used to laughing at his stories. This one just didn’t really make me laugh as much. This one was great, but I would honestly prefer Rafe’s story.

I recently bought (at Deventer boekenmarkt) Rafe's camp book, and after that I wanted to continue with this series. Now I am home again from vacation I could finally do just that. I was curious about Georgia, so her book was the first one I bought.

And I am happy I did, though I have to say that I hated the school. Wow, so because someone in her family ruined things at school you will treat her like crap? That is just a no-no. She doesn't even get a chance to explain, she doesn't get a chance to

I read this because I have been reading the series with our oldest daughter. I thought it was okay, and probably my least favorite of the books so far. It was nice to have a different point of view, but I much prefer the series from Rafe's perspective.

in my opinion I didn't like this book. it had structure and good use of words but lacked a little bit of humour. the best bit was when Rafe khatchadorians sister try's to take revenge on Rafe but fails every time because she does it in the wrong place and time
