"The first part of this book had me cringing and tense as Greg experienced EVERYTHING I hate about air travel. So well done, Jeff Kinney, for making that so believable and putting me right in it.
Overall-funny, typical terrible Manny (that kid's the worst), Rodrick is becoming more likable, and, as my husband said "you need to be willing to put aside disbelief to fully enjoy this one." That's true. But yes, very enjoyable. Those poor Heffleys just can't catch a break. Is it the best children's book I've ever read? Certainly not. Does it need to be? Nope.
" said.

" okay! you never get too old to read childish books. *covering my face w/ hands* " said.

" Jeff Kinney must have known that whenever he writes about Heffleys going on a trip, he creates a masterpiece. " said.

" بعد از یک سال دوباره با خانواده هفلی در سفر و تعطیلات دیداری تازه کردیم.در حد و اندازه های کتاب های قبلی بود. " said.

"The latest entry in this long-running kid’s fiction series sees the Heffley family vacationing at a tropical island resort during Christmastime. As is expected from Kinney’s bestselling books, things go horribly — and are narrated by middle son Greg, i.e. the “Wimpy Kid.”

It’s really no secret this series has declined in quality in recent years, but I did enjoy The Getaway. As far as Heffley vacations go, it’s certainly no The Long Haul, but it does yield several laugh out loud moments. This series now seems to be at its best when it sees the family going somewhere. Kinney seems to have exhausted all plot ideas involving these characters hanging out at home.

A perfectly fine addition to the Wimpy Kid series, this doesn’t quite reach the heights of the early entries but it’s an enjoyable ride all the same.
" said.

"I absolutely loved this and this series and I’m eager for the next in the series to be released. I would also like to draw attention to Kinney’s illustrations which elevate the diary entries which are funny to begin with anyway. The way he illustrates makes the characters often look confused, oddly determined, guilty but brushing it off or happy but in a silly way.

It’s going to take a while to find a series like this. Most books try to be overly witty, have edgelord characters, or seriously dark humour... and that’s just not me. I love silly, goofy and childish humour and books don’t do a lot of this. They’re far too serious and lose all and any spark of youth.
" said.

" Poor Greg. Nothing goes right for him, or his family. A last minute Christmas getaway at a fancy resort goes horrible wrong, and for once it (mostly) isn't his fault! " said.

" My little cousin is the cutest. He's busy with his exams and didn't want me to get bored while I was staying at my uncle's place, so he lent me his copy of The Getaway which I promptly finished that very night. It warms the cockles of my bookish heart to see my cousin as interested in books as I am. c: " said.
