Book Review: Diary of a Wimpy Kid Cabin Fever





Imagine being trapped in the house with your family during a snow blizzard!






Amazon.com:
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?

One of the most popular book series in the world is Diary of a Wimpy Kid.  It's very, very funny.  In previous blogs I've reviewed the first book (the red one) called Diary of a Wimpy Kid as well as the second book (the blue one) Rodrick Rules.


Today, I have a special guest blogger, nine-year-old Nicholas (my son and Wimpy Kid fanatic), giving a review of the newest book in the series called Cabin Fever.


The best book I read this year is Diary of a Wimpy Kid Cabin Fever.  This book is the sixth book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series and in my opinion the best.  I also consider this book and series the best book or books I have read in my life. With a combination of cartoons and jokes it also makes it fun to read.  

The series is written from the main characters point of view (that's Greg to you) which means that he will put his opinion in the book.  Greg is not always likeable but you somehow like him and when he is frustrated and angry you become frustrated and angry.  Greg will have plenty of that because he has an annoying older brother that drives him nuts and a little brother that is the center of attention.  For example, the clothes that Greg gets is the clothes that his older brother used when he was young but the clothes that his little brother gets is brand new (and, yes, they still have Greg's old clothes).  

But the reason why Cabin Fever is the best book that I have read in 2011 and the best book I have read in my life is because in this one book a blizzard strikes and Greg's family (except his Dad that was lucky enough to be a five-star hotel when the blizzard started) was supposed to go grocery shopping when the blizzard hit.  So that meant that they were extremely low on food.  

Could their luck get any worse?  They were trapped in their home with four people and their food supply was low.  Well the answer to that question is "yes".  Suddenly the basement began to flood.  Then the power went off and that meant the heater turned off so it was only a matter of time until the Hefley family turned into complete savages.
