Your Review: I liked how this book got really dark, scary and almost hopeless at the end.(No spoilers) I like a scary story. I didn’t like the beginning when they were packing, and solving problems. It was kinda boring. My favorite character is Greg Heffley, the narrator and main character. He’s pretty funny. This book would make an awesome movie. It would be cool to see the story on screen, not imagination. Zachary Gordon should star because he was Greg in other Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies.
I think people of all ages would like this book. Especially big families reading together. My peers should definitely read this one, if they haven’t yet. It’s easy to read and it has an intense plot and is still easy-going.
