The blog for books and movies

A family road trip is supposed to be a lot of fun . . . unless, of course, you’re the Heffleys.

The journey starts off full of promise, then quickly takes several wrong turns. Gas station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender, and a runaway pig-not exactly Greg Heffley’s idea of a good time. But even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure-and this is one the Heffleys won’t soon forget.


Comments on: "The long haul (Diary of a wimpy kid) – Jeff Kinney" (11)

  1. ‘Diary of a Wimpy kid the long haul’ Is another fantastic book from the collection of diary of a wimpy kid. It starts off as an ordinary day, until Gregs Mum announces that they’re going on a road trip. This book is full of adventure with a mix of mischief behaviour and humorous content. This book is structured very well with an excellent story line. I would definitely recommend this book for ages 9+, the story is age appropriate for kids and even teens would enjoy this book. Personally “Diary of a Wimpy kid the long haul’ is personally my favourite book out of the series/collection.

    This was my favourite book of the series. My favourite character is still Rodney because he comes up with so many fun ideas and has the worse luck ever. I give this book a 9/10 and would recommend this book to the ages 7/14.
    I loved this book so much and there is now a movie.


  4. This book is a very humorous and light hearted book. I really enjoyed the story line in the book and how the ending keeps you guessing. My favourite part of the book was when Greg’s family was at the water park and they lost the key to the locker. I found this part very funny because Greg had it all along. I would recommend this book to anyone with a good humor and I would give it a 8/10.

    i have just finished reading this book and it is amazing i loved every single part. i think that this is a very funny book with lots of humour, i think that this book is great for anyone any age. i loved the part when greg fell into Roderick’s smelly shoes that was so funny. my favourite character in this book so far is manny. he is a very cheeky and cute all at the same time. i would rate this book 8/10.


  6. I really liked The long Haul because even though I have no experience or same situation as it, I still could some how enjoy the book. My favourite part was the whole time they were driving because it was a big part of the story. I always have a different favourite character for each book of the wimpy kid series because there’s always a new story told for each of their lives. My favourite charcter in the long haul was Greg because he was always trying to get away from his annoying siblings and finding ways out of situations he was stuck in. I would recommend this book to 11+ (just because it is a more mature age to read this at).


  7. This book is a great quick read, it’s funny and I love the story line. It reminds me of when I went on a similar road trip, I felt just like Greg ( the main character ) stuck in the back of the car surrounded by siblings yelling, crying, and sleeping- or at least trying to sleep! My favourite character is Manny ( Greg’s younger brother ) he is absolutely soiled rotten and i loved it when Manny’s pig joins in on the road trip and ending up just causing more trouble.

  9. Although I may be too old for these book I continue to love them! They always grab my attention and make me thankful i don’t have two brothers! These books make me laugh! And sometimes you don’t get that enough in books. The Heffley’s decide to go on a rode trip and it takes the funniest turns and makes the reader burst out with a laugher. I was in stitches. I recommend this book to anyone that has a great sense of humour. 9/10!!

  11. I have just finished reading The Long Haul, and loved it very much. I liked this book because I found a little realistic but humorous at the same time. My favourite part of the book was when the Greg’s family was in the car and a pack of seagulls joined in on the family trip, I found it hilarious. My favourite character was Manny, he is cheeky and spoiled rotten but cute all at the same time! My least favourite part of the book was when Greg slept in the cupboard with Roderick’s smelly shoes, I felt frustrated because all Greg needed to do was to turn the light on to see them. I would recommend this book to everyone, it is a great book with a lot of humour. I give this book a 9 out of 10.
