The author's run out of ideas... (may be SPOILERS)
on 30 December 2011
I'll start by saying I've really enjoyed the previous Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. They've been funny, and a great read. But, with this book, the author has run out of ideas.
For instance (there may be SPOILERS here), Rowley and Greg have tried holding events before. They've done comic strips before. You get the idea.
Also, some parts are surprisingly unrealistic - Manny wouldn't be able to mess around with the TV parental controls, never mind the electricity settings. Also, his parents would have surely gone in his room at least once during the 'power cut'.
Overall, I think this is the worst DOAWK book yet. The Ugly Truth should have been the last book, and I'm not going to buy the next book. This book was a waste of £6.49.
