Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Meltdown

No hi ha cap discussió a Converses sobre aquesta obra.
my 11 year old brothers favorite one of the series, very fun and easy to read.
Greg Heffley has the usual trials of middle school compounded by an unusual winter, which starts out unseasonably hot but then quickly turns to snowstorm after snowstorm, culminating in a day off of school and a huge neighborhood snowball fight.
I've only read one other Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, which was the first one, and it doesn't seem to matter all that much if you pick them up out of order. I can see why kids really enjoy these books because they read fast with their notebook style writing supplemented by sketch drawings. I'm really not quite sure why Kinney chooses to write three or four words per page in ALL CAPS, which seemed more like a distraction than an emphasis at that point.
Greg's commentary is humorous as well, although many adults don't like his poor attitude. However, I can see how kids will identify with some of his hemming and hawing about not getting as much video game time as he would like and so forth and so on.
Oddly enough, Kinney actually put in a message about climate change at the beginning of this book and good for him! On the other hand, I really wasn't a fan of how much he used the language of militant violence to describe the snowball fight ("battles," "ammunition," and "anybody who says that war doesn't pay should think again"). The image of a mushroom cloud in the background of the final image was a peculiar choice as well.
This book is about Greg Heffley ( the main character) who is trying to enjoy the winter in the cold. He comes up with various ways of keeping warm outside because his mother doesn’t want him to stay inside all day. Rowley Jefferson (which is his best friend) and Greg attempted to stay inside Grandma Heffley’s desolate house. Unfortunately, Greg’s mother caught him and Rowley in the basement while she was doing laundry. Mrs. Heffley thought the two boys were role-playing when they were really just trying to keep warm. They still couldn't stay in the warm house but they weren’t in trouble. Instead of going into Grandma Heffley’s house, Greg and Rowley stopped at every bakery on the snowy walk back home from school. They stopped after getting yelled at by the owners of the restaurants. They then decided to layer up and play outside with the other upper Surrey street kids. All the upper Surrey street kids got together and decided to have a snowball fight with their rivals, the lower Surrey street kids. The lower Surrey street kids won by being well prepared, unlike the upper Surry street kids.
I would recommend this book only to those who would want a light enjoyable read. I don’t think this is my favorite Diary of a Wimpy Kid book but it isn’t my least favorite. I have stopped fangirling over this series ever since 3rd grade but Jeff Kinney won’t stop writing new books, and it’s my duty to finish reading it. I would recommend this book to people with lower Lexile levels or people like me who don't have the self-control to stop a series. So if you don't have any homework to do just pick up this 1-hour read that will mildly entertain you. Anyway its a solid 7 out of 10 but we all like different things so do what you want.
Cuando el instituto de Greg Heffley cierra a causa de una gran nevada, el barrio se transforma en un gélido campo de batalla: grupos rivales se disputan el territorio, construyen fortificaciones y protagonizan grandes peleas debolas de nieve. En su lucha por la supervivencia, Greg y Rowley tendrán que abrirse camino entre bandas enfrentadas mediante alianzas y traiciones. Cuando la nieve se derrita, ¿surgirán los dos amigos como héroes? ¿O conseguirán almenos salir vivos de esta batalla campal?

I've been reading this in Spanish to practice my bilingual skills (I'm by no means fluent in Spanish, but I am trying to expand beyond what I learned in high school), and I can report that the easy-to-read format (short paragraphs, lots of illustrative cartoons) is really good for language learners, as well as for kids that maybe don't like to read that much. I can't speak for how good the Spanish translation is, since I'm not fluent, but I did notice at least one typo (most likely the Spanish version doesn't benefit from having as many editors, or perhaps any editors, as the original English does).
