Double Down (Diary of a Wimpy Kid #11) Reviews
I feel like Jeff Kinney should have stopped the series at 10. 11 is too much, and, to be honest, I didn't really enjoy the book that much. I feel like there wasn't even a plot-just a bunch of random scenes and a rushed ending. Also, the description on the back is not accurate. It says that the book is about Greg and Rowley making a movie together, but that doesn't happen until the very end.

Great book and one word cliffhanger
These books are a total guilty pleasure for me. Some are better than others. I kind of rounded up for my rating on this one. Maybe it was the psycho cackling witch (I once had an Elmo doll ask me from a silent, darkened closet "Do you want to play with Elmo?!" AAAAaaaaghh!!!!) or the candy corn barfing pig (they kept that thing!?), but it was probably the French Horn "toot" that really made me laugh.

Does it get kids reading? Yes. Is it quality literature, or even FUNNY anymore? No. Did I buy it, albeit months after its initial release, knowing that it'll get a whole lotta love from my students? Yes.
i am not sure why i am still reading this series, but here i am. greg needs to get his shit sorted out.
Can always count on this series for some fun!
The house party continues.
I bet no one of you would have put your money in for this series success, when the first book came out.
Yes, no one.
The story does not get stagnated. The puns are still amusing, if not novel. The book lets your inner child's troll treasure out and you get hooked. For some it is a guilty pleasure to go through the misdeeds of Greg.
For me, they go straight to my CV.
This is a case well handled by Jeff. Although the jokes are not as hilarious as they were, the soul ...more
