Jan 15, Catie rated it really liked it Shelves: I am very sad that I never read this as a young person, because I think that I would have loved it even more than I do now.
I think that it probably would have blown my mind. Effortlessly weaving together the past, present, and ancient history of these characters, Mr. Sachar examines the impact of our history and the nature of hope and human compassion, all while maintaining a light, humorous quality.
This is a book for I am very sad that I never read this as a young person, because I think that I would have loved it even more than I do now. This is a book for children, but one that never speaks down to children. It is both mature and youthful. But I think that as a child, I would have enjoyed seeing them win the day.

Its something pages of pure awesomeness!
By beautifully executing such an ingenious concept, Louis Sachar has made me his fan. Stanley Yelnats is an over sized preteen who is falsely accused of stealing. He is provided with the option to choose between jail and camp green lake. Stanley is not well of, and has never been to camp, so his choice is obvious.
Unfortunately though, Camp green lake is not the usual camp. He gets his fair share of adventu No wonder this book has got a Newberry Award. He gets his fair share of adventure from the camp, only it comes in totally unexpected ways. What I liked best was the flow of the novel. Stanley is a narrator one can sympathize with.
Him being not whinny comes as a welcome relief. Even in the face of grave danger, he remains his calm self with his dry sense of humor, blaming his “no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather” for almost everything.
Zero and his friendship were also refreshing to read about. I think, they were my favorite parts louus they reminded me of my grandmother and the times when she used to tell me stories. The tone of the story automatically gets you in this really relaxed mode and when you are done reading, you have this really satisfied smile on your face. Not exactly how I imagined it, but yeah! Just enjoy this really awesome book, chill and get yourself a good mood.

I used to take clippings from magazines with book reviews, found an old clipping about this book cleaning up the house recently and thought I went through an explosive challenging period of really hard work and high pressure in the office and this book made me look forward to reading if only a few pages when coming home.

Hoyos = Holes
Camp Green Lake is in the middle of the desert, a dried up lake, and every day a scary ward louia guards, amongst who a ‘Mr Sir’, make the boys dig holes there. So, what’s going on? I had so much fun with savhar book, excellently written and the story All factors combined, also the timing of this book in my life, right book at the right time, couldn’t be better.
A sympathetic enjoyable story, really quirky and just pure FUN. Curious about the movie too, never saw it yet. View all 17 comments.
I’m trying to shelve this book, and can’t remember if it had been banned but I thought it had – google confirmed. At the same time, my friend Allison and I are chatting on Google Chat, and she starts ranting about how ridiculous book banning is an opinion with which I agree wholeheartedly.
Anyway, the conversation went like this: Is Holes a banned book? I can’t remember allison: I mean, you could find a reason to gripe abo Funny story: I mean, you could find a reason hoyoz gripe about any book me: I think Sacyar Replacement should be banned because there is a scene talking about knives in the kitchen allison: Holes doesn’t directly support a gay lifestyle allison: Sometimes Sachaar crack myself up.
Anyway, all witty repartee aside, I sacha liked this book. I have no idea why it would have been banned unless it was because hpyos kid hits a jerk in the face with a shovel for being a complete ass to him day in and day out? I loved Stanley, but in all truth, I loved Zero more.
He was the star of this show for me. I wanted everything to work out for him, and I was on pins and needles worrying about him when things started to go bad for him. Punishment is one thing, but the kind of things that these kids were made to do is nothing short of abuse.
