It's a strange story, but strangely compelling and lovely too. Louis Sachar uses poker-faced understatement to create a bizarre but believable landscape--a place where Major Major Major Major of Catch-22 would feel right at home. But while there is humor and absurdity here, there is also a deep understanding of friendship and a searing compassion for society's underdogs. As Stanley unknowingly begins to fulfill his destiny--the dual plots coming together to reveal that fate has big plans in store--we can't help but cheer for the good guys, and all the Yelnats everywhere. (Ages 10 and older) --Brangien Davis --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Holes, a young adult novel by Louis Sachar, is an entertaining story full of plot twists and humor.
At Camp Green Lake, every day Stanley must dig a hole that is five feet wide and five feet deep to "build character."
It's a well written story with great characters and a very well thought out plot which slowly reveals itself..
