The Ugly Truth (Diary of a Wimpy Kid #5)

Review From User :

You just can't get enough of it.

I have been introduced to these lately and I find it surprisingly addictive. This one brought in little surprises of Greg's mom leaving the house to the men and the resulting dilapidation of the daily routines, the short and thankful introduction of the domestic help and her witty circumventions around the works.

I guess the reason we all find this so intriguing and compelling is that there's that kid inside each one of us. The stupid beliefs that we all had about the workings of the universe. Things that we keep to ourselves. Those troll incidents that we want to laugh out loud to but do not want to be associated to our adult images.

This book brought many such incidents and packed them into one for me. You might think that you maybe a Tony Stark or something but you sure had some funny mishaps in the world of adults.

Or as we call it, 'there's this funny thing that happened to my friend in childhood'.

A whooping five star from a 22 year old. :)


Greg Heffley has always been in a hurry to grow up. But is getting older really all it’s cracked up to be?

Greg suddenly finds himself dealing with the pressures of boy-girl parties, increased responsibilities, and even the awkward changes that come with getting older – all without his best friend, Rowley, at his side. Can Greg make it through on his own? Or will he have to face the “ugly truth”?
