"Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Book 8" by Jeff Kinney is another installment of hugely popular and funny comic series that was previously published as online comic and due to its popularity deserved to be released in novel edition.

Its hero, called Greg Heffley is a 6th grade student who really wants to become popular, like most children of that age.
He is writing his diary which looks like it's written in the notebook, full of funny text and even funnier drawings.
Greg lives in an (almost) normal family with his parents and two brothers, one older named Rodrick who is heavy metal fan and other smaller, named Manny, who is whiny kid.
His best friend is Rowley Jefferson, boy of same age with annoying parents who constantly annoy and bother making Greg's parents look like the best in the world.

Greg is usual victim of older boys, finding him always at the wrong place and time.
Due to his constant desire to be cool, Greg is all the time pursuing some funny tasks like trying to enter Guinness Book due to building of biggest snowman or creating his haunted house...
But the only thing he manage to do successfully is acting as guard for kindergarten children while they're going home during lunch that isn't necessarily a bad thing allowing to get free chocolate and get away from part of math class..

In this last book Greg is having problems with his best friend, Rowley who left him in the lurch, and now Greg has to look for new friends that isn't an easy task in middle school.
As always Greg has an original idea and he will come to one to try solving this problem with the help of luck, leaving the dice to help him change his fortunes....

"Diaries of a Wimpy Kid" are great books if you are middle grade kid or parent to one due to the truthful image of all the problems that bother children of that age enabling reader to easily identify with him and enjoy his adventures.
Girls do not perceive Greg, he is always having problems with older brother, little one makes him always guilty for something, and his mother and father don't understand him.
And although it looks like that everything is against him, Greg is just an ordinary child going through his turbulent youthful years.

The book is nicely illustrated and filled with humor making it very entertaining piece both for kids and adults.

All of that makes this new installment another great book for teenager or even younger kid with which it can be certain they will have a good time reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another amazing book from Jeff, 5 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
(Using my dad's account but I'm his 13 year old daughter) The thing everyone likes about Diary of a Wimpy Kid is the humour. I think we can ALL relate to experiences from the book,, and if you don't laugh at least 5 times at this book, then just WOW.
Great book, it deserves every 5 star rating, worth every penny. Stay awesome Jeff!

2.0 out of 5 stars All good books up until Cabin Fever this book EMBARRASING, 26 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Hard Luck (Diary of a Wimpy Kid book 8) (Hardcover)
I have been a fan of the DOAWK series since the first book came out and they are good for some light reading and if I want a chuckle.

SPOILERS

I have loved books 1-6 I think (Cabin Fever) and that is when it started to go down hill...

Here are a few problems...

Rodrick I used to love his silly ideas of being a band member he is hardly mentioned in this book and "loded Diper" his band is not mentioned once.

Rowley He was funny and it was funny to see his parents fuss over him however he is kind of taken out of the book a bit because he has a new girlfriend and Greg has a fight with him.

Holly Hills she needs to be brought back! or at least give Greg somebody he fancies! I loved how Greg thought he was acting nice to Holly and she didnt really get the hint, she just magically disappears from the book.

There is many re used jokes in this book which means that the author is running out of ideas.

It seems like Jeff Kinney (author) has been trying to get so many jokes out as possible by adding as many characters as he can how many aunts and uncles are there altogether? Like 10? 15 out of all the book?

Now some Ideas for you Jeff if you're reading...

Try and find a better storyline then a short part of greg's life eg in this book you have just done the storyline about greg having an argument with Rowley which can get boring after a whole book! maybe in one part of the book Rodrick is moving out and getting an apartment however he is always still at there house maybe Greg is happy that he is moving out. or maybe the whole family move house in another part? maybe an animal? ANYTHING!

Basically you need a storyline eg Dog days had about his Summer and Cabin Fever was about his Winter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good!, 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hard Luck (Diary of a Wimpy Kid book 8) (Hardcover)
I pre ordered this book for the release date although I received it a couple days after. But this review is about the book not the service!

So anyway I found the book very good. It took me about 2 hours to read and although I'm 16, I still really liked it. The title of the book really does some it up! It really is hard luck. Rowley gets a girlfriend so Greg is left all by himself and so he tries to find new friends- which is proven tough for someone in middle school! So the book revolves around Greg struggling to find new friends when his only friend is ignoring him. And also making other decisions based on luck!I really do recommend this book. I have all the books and although this one isn't my favourite, it is still really good!
At the end of the book, there are various things to do a few pages after the story has ended. There are a few fun quizzes and other things like 'How well do you know your friend,' 'Predict your future' and 'Things you should do before you are old.'

So I rate this book 5 stars. Don't listen to any of the reviews that give it 1 star. They're usually just complaining about the kindle version where the words overlap the images and aren't actually rating the story itself!
