        I can tell by the cover of the book that "Holes" is good because it is a gold medal book. I want to read because everyone says it is a great book. I have seen the movie and it was amazing. I can't wait to read this book.

                    Mystery, treasure, and. . .lizards. this novel blew me away. At first i was slightly confused by all of the changing story lines mixed in, but Louis Sachar pulled it off and it was worth it in the end!!! this book kept me on my toes and forced me to think about it more than most stories. i loved the narrative Louis Sachar used and how well it sounded. not only smartly told but also hilarious! even though i had to try to keep up with all the loose ends, by the end i was thoroughly satisfied with how well it was wrapped together. this book is fast paced with enough emotion and humor to keep you involved. A fantastic novel. Please make a great decision and read it today!

                      I read the book with my dad. He said that he read it a long time ago. I like that the family never gave up on there dream to find a sink free shoe. One should be good and not hold grudges with others. good book. saw the move this past weekend. good too
