The Ugly Truth (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, #5), Jeff Kinney

The story begins with Greg explaining that since he and his best friend Rowley have had a big fight, their friendship has been "history.".

Susan Heffley, Greg's mother, announces that she will be going back to college for a few months in order to stimulate her mind.

As a result, the Heffley men must take care of themselves, and most stability falls apart. Food is often ruined, and since Susan usually does the chores around the house, Greg is

This was a very funny book, but perhaps not quite as funny as the rest of the series. Don't get me wrong! The Ugly Truth has plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. But, while the first four books had me roaring with laughter, erupting in guffaws, and frequently demanding to read aloud portions of the inspired insanity to anyone within earshot while gasping and trying to catch my breath, this latest offering only had me chuckling ruefully, or perhaps breaking out in a broad grin from time to time.

You just can't get enough of it.

I have been introduced to these lately and I find it surprisingly addictive. This one brought in little surprises of Greg's mom leaving the house to the men and the resulting dilapidation of the daily routines, the short and thankful introduction of the domestic help and her witty circumventions around the works.

I guess the reason we all find this so intriguing and compelling is that there's that kid inside each one of us. The stupid beliefs that we all had about

This was a very funny book. I loved all the parts of the book but I especially loved the part where Greg overheard his parents in thinking that he was going to be the GROOMSMEN because they were getting him a tux. He thinks he gets to join in on the party that's held for the to-be married man. But turned out he was the assistant flower boy. I was laughing so hard because he had to hold the flowers for Manny. i recommend this book to all who loves humor books. ...more

The Wimpy Kid series is crossing all the barriers of laughter, breaking all the records, leaving me roaring and screaming with laughter, also with phrases like 'Hey, listen to this one, what Greg did....'

The reason Wimpy Kid is a big yes, is because at one point or another, one finds himself in the shoes of Gregory.

He's a normal kid who wants to get famous, dreaming of dating and marrying the most popular girl in school, thinking of ways to get rid of his brother's mischief, and has an equally f

I loved this book more than any of the other Wimpy kids for two reasons. First being that it was awesome and funny. Second, this being the last book in my box set I was savoring every page because I knew I have come to the end of the fun journey. I found this book funnier than the others because now Greg has started to have some real issue related to puberty and relations. He is having a tough time dealing and ignoring his one time best friend Rowley and things got worse when Rowley got a pimple ...more

More of the same great formula of simple drawing and funny line continues to rock. I think I will use same review for all the Wimpy Kid books. All are more of the same and I can't get enough of them.

People who don't read generally ask me my reasons for reading. Simply put I just love reading and so to that end I have made it my motto to just Keep on Reading. I love to read everything except for Self Help books but even those once in a while. I read almost all the genre but YA, Fantasy, Biographi

I don't approve how Greg treats his best-friend Rowley but after all what happened, at least they back as being friends in the end. I like how Greg's Gammie advised him not to hurry growing up and just enjoy his time as a teen now. Young readers of this series also must remember the lessons hidden behind the funny stories in this series because they are written especially for them. ...more

I think this book is for people who like humer books and are in grades 2 to 6. My favorite part of the book was when Greg climed through the sewer to Rowely's house just so he could dodge Fregly(The wierd kid). The auther of this book is Jeff Kinney. I think this book was really funny becuase they do really wierd stuff like trying to ditch school. ...more

As per usual, hilarious stuff. I could live on this series... yes, more so than the HP series.
Cooper Broadway
This is the worst book of this series in my opinion. The book is like the awkward middle part of the series (Much like Greg). It feels empty without Rowley, and it didn't really feel like it had a main plot. I just wasn't immersed into this book like the other ones in the series, but being a regular reader of the series, I had to read it. ...more

Greg and Rowley are on the outs. The trouble is, Greg doesn't have anyone to replace him with.



He's also dealing with growing up. It's not all fun and games. And there are also boy and girl parties coming up. Times are changing.



My favorite part was when the Heffley's got a maid.

All I can say is, if being a maid means watching TV all day, eating snacks, and taking naps in my bed, then I guess I've finally found a career I can get excited about.

This a is a fantastic series. So many giggl

In The Ugly Truth, an auto-biography by Jeff Kinney, takes place in a bunch of settings, like Gregory's house, and his school. It's the beginning of the year and Greg got in another fight with his best friend Rowley, and they are no longer talking anymore, and to make matters even more awkward Rowleys be
