The Long Haul (Diary of a Wimpy Kid #9) Reviews
As a fan of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, I found this no less entertaining than the rest of the books written by Jeff Kinney. It is the latest one and only came out on Tuesday, November 4th, 2014. The book is about Greg Heffley and the rest of his family going on a surprise trip planned by their mom, and with no advance warning. The adventure that they go on is truly amazing and pretty shocking. There are countless twists and turns and things you learn later in the book that make you realize ...more
Greg Heffley is my hero:
He can do no wrong.
I guess technically Jeff Kinney is my hero who can do no wrong. Heffley gets himself into all kinds of trouble for being able to only make the wrong decisions - his words, not mine. (He compares his life to a Choose Your Own Adventure; even in those books his decision making is suspect...)
As always, parts of this were a little too unrealistic - dangling Manny into the van through the sunroof via a fishing pole, for instance. That kind of humor is too mu ...more
Whoot! Whoot! Keep 'em comin', Kinney!!

This book was so, so, sooooo funny. When I got to the part about (view spoiler)[the seagull flying into their minivan to try and steal Greg's bag of cheese curls, only to end up wrecking havoc, I couldn't help but picture how awesome that scene would've been in a live-action movie. Too bad the movie franchise isn't going to continue. :(
Rowley was only mentioned once in the entire book, but that was ok. (hide spoiler)] The road tri ...more
از بین کتاب های این مجموعه، با این یکی خیلی ارتباط برقرار کردم ... خیلی خیلی زیاد 😢
What a lovely way to start my new year! I bought this book as a gift for a kid and ended up finishing it before she had even read the first page. So as it happens, Greg Heffley, a middle schooler had planned to spend his summer holidays in front of the TV when his mother announced: "Pack your bags, we're going on a road trip!" Not a surprise, Greg is peeved. To complicate his life, his Mom has picked up all her crazy holiday ideas from an article she read in Family Frolic magazine. Greg's family ...more
As always, cute. My son and I read these every year when they come out. I genuinely laugh out loud at least three times with each book. This one was just as funny in ways, but weaker in others since it took a hilarious situation and amped it up a little unrealistically. Sure, its all kids fiction, but this one is more far-fetched than the others. The magic and charm is humor that can be related to. This one has plenty to relate to, but goes over the top at the same time. It's a humor for kids ...more

Summer break is a time for relaxing, but Greg Heffley’s summer is about to get a lot less fun. When his mother decides family time means a family trip with no destination (and no electronics!), even Greg realizes that this is a bad idea. Loading up the car, Greg, his mother and father, his brother Rodrick, and his little brother Manny hit the road with the destination of…ADVENTURE!!!! Be it a doomed trip to the beach with an angry gull, a county fair with a piglet as a prize, or the mysterious B ...more
