I enjoyed reading this book. The story is realistic because even though it is a fiction book, it is still possible to get arrested. I found Holes to be thrilling. The description of the characters were vivid. I could really picture them. Through his words, Louis Sachar the author, told how Stanley felt about digging words. Throughout the story everything seems to connect and fits perfectly at the end.
I would recommend this book to every 4th and 5th grader because many kids that age have read it and liked it. I think they should read it. My 5th grade cousin told me about Holes and I'm glad he did. Holes is the best book I have read. I couldn't stop reading it. I enjoyed reading this book because it had an interesting topic. Stanley had to live through a curse. For Stanley, that just seems normal.
