Characterization

The main character, Greg Heffley, in the book Diary of a wimpy Kid has the personality of a judge or in other words, he judges people on how they look and act. He also cares very much about how other people view him, which he thinks is more important than academics. That is the reason why he will never be good at life and never have a job he loves, all because of him and his video game obsession. Overall he needs to shape up and focus on whats important in life. In conclusion, the main character, Greg Heffley, in the book Diary of a Wimpy Kid, shows who he is in many ways through characterization.

Theme

The theme of the story ,Diary of a Wimpy Kid, I think is to respect people and they will respect you. Evidence for this claim is in many scenes where Greg, the main character, makes fun of people in his book, but we all know in common physics that for every action there is reaction, equal but opposite. So if he's mean to people, then the next day they could bully him. To conclude this paragraph, Greg Heffley is unaware about his actions making him miserable.

Point of View

The book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, is written in first person point of view which I feel is a good choice by the author because it makes the story more of a journal and less of a narration of a fictional character. I think the book is fine the way it is in first person viewing. Also the drawing is the book is how the main character sees other people, which is why he draws a lot of people out of shape with big noses and outrageously large body shapes. I think the author made a good choice of making the book how it is, because if the story was in third person rather than first person, the book wouldn't be much of a diary, it would be more of a fictional biography. Another good reason is because it wouldn't be him talking the narrator would be talking, so we wouldn't know Greg's personal feelings about everything. To conclude, the book Diary of a Wimpy Kid is written in first person point of view, a good choice for several reasons.

Recommendation

I recommend this book to anyone who is ranging from second grade to eight grade (ages 8 to 14) and who likes realistic fiction or any journal type formatting. This book doesn't have very much suspense or mysteries in it, its just a kid telling about his problems in life.
