      I loved how there were two stories telling at the same time, and slowly, everything started to link together like a jigsaw puzzle

    Holes is a very interesting book with an interesting storyline, starting with a what seems to be a very simple story and case turning into a tale of mystery and going back into the past. Sachar has really taken thought into setting the characters out. I think that this book is very good book and people should definetely read it if they like a book thats a little different to normal.

    I believe this book is extremely entertaining and for many reasons. The aspect of refering back to the past to strengthen the storyline is an interesting thing to incorporate. The storyline starts simple but builds up eventually as the main character is brought to a juvenile detention centre ( being dejected ) to gradually gaining respect from his peers and looking into the past, discovering more about his family. Each character is interesting and keeps the reader entertained at all times. The incredible detail into the past and the present such as the greenlake 110 years ago really assists the reader in fully understanding the storyline and makes it an extremely enjoyable read. This book can be for anyone who wants to see something new and entertaining.
