The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series are now presented in awesome binaural audio. Listen with headphones for the full, glorious, effect!

In the most hotly anticipated children's book release of the year, the globally best-selling and award-winning Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is back, in this hilarious audio edition, read by Dan Russell. Greg Heffley's on a losing streak. His best friend, Rowley Jefferson, has ditched him, and finding new friends in middle school is proving to be a tough task. 

To change his fortunes, Greg decides to take a leap of faith and turn his decisions over to chance. Will a roll of the dice turn things around, or is Greg's life destined to be just another hard-luck story?

Amazing book bad reader

Would you listen to Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck again? Why?

This was a good book and I would highly recommend it for children.

What aspect of Dan Russell’s performance might you have changed?

His voice was a bit annoying but he had good expressions and tones.

The Worst Diary of a Wimpy Kid Book

Despite this book being good overall, it’s the worst one in the series in my opinion. I mostly use it to fall asleep. It’s just boring and the plot is flat.
