the book haves a funny
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. I think part of the reason why this book didn't tickle my funnybone as much is because Greg Heffley is growing up. He's always been conscious of being a middle-school boy and a bit of late-bloomer, but this volume has him much more worried about when he's going to catch up with a lot of the guys in his class. There's less random hilarity in this volume, and more of a connected storyline, as Greg ruminates on his still strained friendship with Rowley, his uncle's upcoming wedding, his health class and school slumber party. Greg's obsession with getting more popular, and winning over girls in particular, continues to be charming. I was surprised however, by how much he really didn't get it, in terms of Rowley. Greg has been a selfish friend over the years, but he doesn't see that at all. He just wants things to go back to the way they were, when Rowley put up with all of his abuse. Greg's bored demeanor with everything having to do with his family, and his disappointment at being treated like a little kid at his uncle's wedding (he was hoping to be a full-fledged groomsman, rather than an assistant flower boy) was pretty silly, and the highlight of the book, for me, was the school sponsored sleepover. Convinced he's going to be able to mingle with cute girls all evening, Greg eagerly signs up, but is sorely disappointed when it's mostly guys and their over-earnest teachers take away all of the kids cell phones and electronic devices when they refuse to socialize with each other. Predictably, the helicopter parents arrive to pick up their kids early, fearing the worst when they don't answer their text messages. The blend of humor, and stick figure-like cartoons which convey so much emotion which are the hallmarks of this series are still here and Wimpy Kid fans won't be disappointed in this latest addition.
I love these kinds of books
This book is no that bad. It is like there is no ugly truth, although there is.
i have always like reading books such as these!!!
I love your book!
the book is hilarios but i dont read it all the time because im busy with my brothers and sisters
I Love All The Diary Of A Wimpy Kid Books! They Are Soooo Funny And I Keep On Reading Them Again And Again And again!!!
So I read this book a lot of times, and I loved it! A lot of books are based on girls growing up and it makes the boys and girls who read them feel kind of awkward. Now it's about a boy growing up, and that makes me feel a little better. Greg is growing and maturing. He really wants to impress his love and stop growing up because he doesn't want to go through puberty. Read this funny book to see how Greg handles it! I don't mean to sound biased, so please don;t be mad, I just like books that are fair!
