This is the second book about the Wimpy Kid, I can see me getting through the whole series rather rapidly.
Rodrick is Greg’s older brother and bullies him at any opportunity. Rodrick is drummer of a heavy metal band Loded Diper” who sometimes rehearse in the basement. Rodrick is lazy like Greg but seems to get away with it more. When their parents are away Rodrick has a party, Greg is tricked into going into the basement and Rodrick locks the door, so Greg misses the party but Rodrick lets him out to clear up after. Greg’s mom tries repeatedly to get the boys to bond, with disastrous effects. If you read Diary of a Wimpy Kid this is more of the same juvenile humour about a middle school slacker and his family. These books have sold millions and unusually for English books are available cheaply here in Tbilisi, so I picked up half a dozen.
My rating 4 out of 5
