Dairy of a Wimpy Kid - Cabin Fever

Printer-friendly version
Author:  Jeff Kinney

Greg Heffley is in big trouble. School property has been damaged, and Greg is the prime suspect. But the crazy thing is, he's innocent. Or at least sort of.

The authorities are closing in, but when a surprise blizzard hits, the Heffley family is trapped indoors. Greg knows that when the snow melts he's going to have to face the music, but could any punishment be worse than being stuck inside with your family for the holidays?

Are you looking for the best book that will keep you entertained for hours? Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever is a great book. The characters are; Greg as the main character, alongside his mum, dad, little and older brother.

This book is about Gregory's "horror" experience before Christmas that includes dealing with bullies, fighting for publication of his newspaper, remembering to be on his best behaviour to get presents and the constant fear in his mind about the involvement in damage of school property. Greg knows that the police are coming for him when the surprise blizzard hits. The plot thickens as the snow does too, surrounding their house and trapping them inside.

This book portrays the dark side of Greg's family and his daily urge to play videogames. He meets his old friend Alfrendo who, he discovers, makes a perfect comic stand. He must suffer the torment of living with his brothers Rodrick and Manny who he feels get more attention than him.

 This book focuses on the relationship of Manny and Greg and shows that Manny is very pampered and always gets his way whereas Greg never gets away with anything that he does. Greg is the perfect average child who has his life "ruined" by siblings. This book will tickle your funny bone till you will not be able to keep a straight face for days on end.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a good starter book for kids and I definitely recommend it for kids around the age of 10 and up. This book is an amazing, easy read that people will understand and be able to feel what the young man is feeling. Maybe some of the people can relate to the young boy and some of the characters in the novel.
