Holes is about a young lad called Stanley who is always in the wrong place at the wrong time and consequently gets sent to a boot camp for a crime he did not commit. At camp Green Lake, Stanley gets to dig holes. Lots of holes.
I liked this book but couldn't say it comes in my top 20 of favourites. It'd be a good book for a teenager, and after all that is who it is aimed at.
I came across this story at the age of 17, I became obsessed. Why didn't my school have this as a read!! It's this book that made me become such a great fan of Louis Sacher, now at 21 Im still caught reading this book as it will always travel though my life with me..fantastic storyline, it was well thought of, I was personally impressed.
