I mean, look at it … how cool is that? Even without the light saber, the cover is light years ahead of the one you’ll make:
Go ahead. Try it yourself.
Of course, the one you’ll make is modeled after one made by a middle-school boy, so I guess you get what should expect.
That’s probably a metaphor for the book as well, since it tries to come off like a Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but with a cooler concept. All you’re left with is the cool concept, but lacking the punch of the original.
I laughed out loud at the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Out loud. In this book, I chuckled a few times and smiled some, but it didn’t have that unexpected punch.
It’s good, but not great. It reads quick, so you don’t get bogged down with it.
I hear there’s a sequel with Darth Vader … I wonder if that folds any better …
And that’s how they get ya! So, good job Mr. Angelberger, if the story doesn’t get them, the concept will.
