Overall: 2 out of 5 stars
After listening to my coworkers rail about how terrible this series is, I decided I had to see for myself. My conclusion is, it could be worse. Greg just isn’t a very interesting person; he doesn’t DO a whole lot, and he definitely doesn’t seem to learn from any experiences or grow as a person. But I think it’s because he’s such an average guy that he appeals to kids. The only benefit to these books seems to be that it’s reading. I say go for it, if you personally approve of the content for your kid.
