I was thrilled that volume 9, The Long Haul, came out so shortly after I read the first eight books, and I quickly picked it up. At first, I was a little disappointed, because the story revolves around a road trip, and that was something that had recently been done in another Wimpy Kid book. Also, the first part of the story is a little sparse in the humor department. Of course, I kept reading, and I'm VERY happy I did.
Turns out, this is one of the funniest, if not THE funniest book in the whole series. In fact, it's one of the funniest books I've ever read. Some of my favorite parts include anything to do with that crazy pig (especially the mini bar incident), Greg's misguided vendetta against the Beardos, the great seagull mishap, Manny's short lived car-jacking, and... well, everything that happens when you cram a family this filled with craziness (and love) into one tight minivan on an ill fated quest for adventure.
The stories of Greg Heffley and his misadventures with his friends as they go through their school years make for fun and engaging reading, and the author's blend of satire and cartoon drawings makes this something that can be enjoyed by both younger children, adolescents, and even adults. True, Greg Heffley is not always the most sympathetic of characters, but even with all his flaws, there's an undefinable quality about this kid that just sucks you right into whatever drama he's experiencing. In "Hard Luck", Greg is placed in a quandary when his best friend Rowley ditches him. Who is to be Greg's new best friend? Finding a best friend in middle school is not going to be easy and when Greg decides to leave it to luck, well, things start happening Wimpy Kid style! A fun and entertaining read!
He read the entire thing with no assistance. I am so proud of him. I am also thankful he found a series he enjoys that is written well, yet still simply enough he can read it without a struggle.
It's funny and cute much like the other books in the series and the movies.
