The laughs are there, but there weren't any really great moments. I think the closest I came to laughing out loud was the scene about his doll's revenge. Beyond that, there's the usual bits with Rowley, a little with his older brother, his younger brother Manny is still a terror (why he's not disciplined at all I don't get), and his parents still don't get him.
The kids I spoke to enjoyed this book, but not as much as earlier versions. So I guess that's consistent. The author stated that he was inspired to write this book when he himself was snowed in or trapped away from home. Frankly, this book seems like something that would come out of that rather than serious creative juices. Hopefully for fans of the series this is just a blip and not the beginning of the end of the comedy.
Jeff Kinney has done it again! He has an amazing ability to reach back into childhood to remember the perspective we all had and to revive memories of Christmas, winter, bullying, online activities, "solutions" that didn't work out so well, having to help parents, and starting little enterprises. I felt as if I were there with Greg in many cases.
Even better, his portrayal of Greg as being hapless . . . but not quite knowing it . . . is especially appealing. There's some of Greg in all of us, and Jeff Kinney obviously appreciates the naiveté while letting us all enjoy some good laughs that are almost as much at our own expense as they are at Greg's.
Finally, Jeff Kinney understands the frequent silliness of the world . . . when we "believe" in what we are supposed to believe. In so doing, there's a cautionary tale here to ask questions first.
