Book Review: Holes – by Louis Sachar

Holes Holes by Louis Sachar

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
We’ve been reading this with the kids for a bedtime story, and it’s very well written. It’s not a ‘kids’ book, it’s just a great story that happens to involve kids. Highly recommended, great for the 8-12 set and their parents, if you’re tired of fairy books and the like. Poignant, touching, inspiring and funny, Holes takes us through the story of one Stanley Yelnats, a boy who was at the wrong place at the wrong time, and because of unfortunate circumstances finds himself at a correctional camp for boys. His story, and his family’s history, become intertwined in the present as Sachar deftly weaves the threads of Stanley’s life into a delightful tale of friendship, intrigue, and surprising twists.We all enjoyed it. After we had finished, I took it and re-read it to fill in the chapters I had missed!
