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.

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

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!

Rodrick Rules was just as funny and descriptive as the other. In this book, Greg has disturbing conflicts with his brother that enrages Greg. As Greg states his *moments* with Rodrick, he discovers Rodrick has been rather mean too him. I can't wait to read the third book!

I didn't like it, personally. The cartoons were cute and funny -- some parents may think that means younger kids can read it, but the reading level is definitely around 5th grade and older. Think the age the first HP book was aimed at, and you have the correct reading age for this book.

Why I didn't like it? The protagonist never learned a lesson of any sort whatsoever. Throughout the book, it was hinted at that his elder brother (Rodrick) had a horrific secret held over his head. I was honestly

Having an older bother like Rodrick is not trouble enough that Gregory has to spend a week with him alone when their mother comes up with this idea of getting them all together and writing in her columns about it!

Gregory has already less problems in his life that now Rodrick is literally ruling his life and being small, younger and the wimpy kid, Gregory can't do a thing about it!

My favorite part in this book is when Rodrick organizes the party and Gregory and Rowley keep their mouth shut and en

When last we saw our hero Greg Heffley he had survived everything from cursed cheese to an unfortunate stage debut. Not that much has changed in his life, of course. He’s still a perpetual victim of his older brother Rodrick’s crazy schemes and his younger brother Manny’s three-year-old excesses. Greg might have to do what Rodrick says for a while too since his older brother knows something terrible, HORRIBLE even, that happened to Greg over the summer and he's threatening to tell the world. And
This book wasn't as silly as the first one and it seems to focus more on Greg and his friends and family being mean to each other.

This book focuses more on Greg's relationship with his older brother and how Rodrick is always picking on him. Greg's younger brother Manny is a tattletale who gets away with everything. Greg has unfortunately been picking up a lot of Rodrick's personality traits too; he plays mean tricks on his classmates and is horrible to his "best friend." At this point I kind of

خوندن این کتاب یه توفیق اجباری بود که خیلی شگفت زدم کرد. کتاب داستان های تیکه تیکه از زندگی روزمره یه پسر بچه است(رودریک اسم برادرشه) که طوری که زندگی و آدم های اطرافشو میبینه فوقالعاده طنز و واقع گرایانست، آدم ها واتفاق های مختلفی که تو زندگی بزرگسالی فراوون ان و توصیف مزخرف بودنشون خیلی سخته ولی این کتاب با دید طنز همه ی اونارو اونجوری که لازم داری بیان میکنه، و باعث خنده های واقعی میشه.به نظرم خوندن این کتاب به هیچ حس و حال خاصی نیاز نداره و همیشه میشه ازش لذت برد و خندید.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney is an exciting and hilarious journey of Greg Heffley. In Rodrick Rules, Jeff Kinney focuses on the relationship of Greg and his brothers, Rodrick and Manny. Rodrick is older than Greg, and is much more 'corrupt'. He manipulates his father into doing his homework and other selfish acts. Rodrick soon gets caught and gets punished. Manny on the other hand, never gets caught doing bad things. Greg hates Manny for many reasons, one being manny gets away with everyt ...more

The main character of this book has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. He's always looking for an angle; he has no empathy for anyone and only sees a situation for what it can gain him and will use anything and anyone toward that end; he feels no remorse for his wrongdoings ever and always feels he's being punished unfairly; he constantly puts down his best friend, even though he would have NO friends if it weren't for Rowley. Bottom line: There is no character growth in these books. His life ex ...more

I re-read this because after reading Outlander I feel like nothing will compare, so I'm stuck in a loop of children's books. It's not that I can't read an adult book it's that I don't want to. I feel like my love of Outlander will cause a bad rating and review for the next romance read so I stuck with these.

Also, I've always enjoyed these books. Yes I may be older then the intended age group but I love this series. My reviews from earlier didn't do this book justice, so I thought I'd re-read and

ولد ذكي وعند حس فكاهة لكل شئ في حياته
بيحكي عن حاجات ممكن كانت تدمر نفسية طفل في سنه
بس هو دايما بيصورها بشكل غريب يخليها ظريفة جدا ومضحكة في مذكراته

فالكتاب ده كان اغلب الحكايات عن المشاكل بينه وبين اخوه رودريك في وقت الاجازة الصيفية
الكتاب اقل في المستوى من الجزء الاول واقل فالفكاهة

انا بحب شخصية صحبه رولي وبحب ماني لما يستفزه فعلا ماني ده مستفز اوي حتى ليا انا شخصيا
واكتر موقف ضحكني لما امه ضبطته بيكذب
وطلبت منه يكون صادق باستمرار

Anyone who has ever suffered at the hands of an older brother or sister, or even worse, been sandwiched in between older and younger siblings, will thoroughly enjoy this cartoon novel delivered in the guise of the journal of the beleaguered, under-appreciated and very funny Gregory. This book makes an especially excellent reading suggestion for reluctant boy readers. The third in the series is forthcoming!

Greg Heffley is back for a second volume. Things haven't changed much for him--he still thinks he's cooler than his best friend Rowley, his parents are still nerdily out of touch, and Greg is still running for the coveted Class Clown title. Unfortunately, that's not all that hasn't changed over the summer--younger brother Manny is still a tattletale, older brother Rodrick is still a bully, and Greg still has the Cheese Touch. Only now Manny is spilling secrets from ages ago, Rodrick has a new se ...more

Rodrick Rules wasn't as hilarious as the first book of the series (but was still a pretty funny and quick read). I'm guessing that's because Greg is growing up and adults are pretty boring, you know. Still, I'll definitely give the third book a try. I actually can't wait to see what Manny has in store for us (I really really like that kid).

Diary of a Wimpy: Rodrick Rules by Jeff Kinney introduced a new main problem to the table: older siblings. Rodrick the teenaged brother of the Middle School survivalist Greg Hefley tortures him to the point of a monopolizing frustration. As is Greg doesn’t have enough to deal with already, in this graphic novel, Greg now has his older brother acting up. The power seeking, rock-and-roll entrepreneur, and leader of the band “Loded Diaper” Rodrick ruins Greg’s life. He is a complete nuisance for t ...more

Greg Heffley starts another year at school after summer vacation. As he makes it very clear, summer vacation did not go well at all. Most of his time was spent wasted away, and whatever of a vacation he had was clearly not as he had anticipated. For one, Rodrick has found out that Greg has been maintaining a journal. It can be guessed that, given Rodrick's character and his behaviour to his brother, that did not go in any way Greg would have liked. The details are left out at this stage, and are ...more

I remembered watching this movie on the TV, just for a few minutes and I'd fallen asleep. Yeah, the movie bores me but the book was a different story. So in this book, Greg's mom thought that Greg did a good job on his previous journal and bought another one, for this year. To make the story worse, Rodrick found out about the journal and you know what happens next.

He's devastated that his summer break is pretty boring and his dad, OH MY GOD, he made Greg joined the swimming team. LMAO.

In middle school after summer vacation, Greg Heffley and his older brother Rodrick must deal with their parents' terrible attempts to have them bond. Greg is enrolled into swimming class.
Greg's older brother, Rodrick, picks Greg up after swim class and forces Greg into his "Loded Diper" van. Every time Rodrick puts on the brakes, Greg ends up colliding his head into band equipment in the process. Those incidents end up with Greg walking home from practices.Overall this book is great for comedy l
