Book review: "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw"

"The Last Straw," the third book in Jeff Kinney's "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series, has a lot to live up to, since the first two were so clever and funny.

And in truth, this one isn't quite as good. It's just a little less funny, and the main character, Greg Heffley, shows some flashes of cockiness that make him a bit less likeable ("I'm pretty much one of the best people I know").

Having said that, it's still worth reading, and you'll definitely get some laughs out of it. It gets better in the second half, as Greg's clumsy infatuation with Holly Hills produces multiple embarrassing moments.
