Holes, 22. Februar 2000
The book that I read for my book review was Holes. This book was written by Louis sachar, and it is one of the best books I have read all year. It was very interesting and exciting.
This book is about a juvenile detention center called Camp green Lake. This camp is for boys who have done bad things. The boys have been given a choice between going to jail or Camp Green Lake. Of course, the boys choose Camp Green Lake because they think it must be a wonderful place, but it's actually a very rotten place. When the boys get there, they have to dig a hole every single day until they are realeased. The holes must be 5 feet long and 5 feet deep. They start digging before the sun comes up and they try to finish the holes before the afternoon because that's the hottest part of the day.
The story is centered around a boy named Stanley Yelnats, who chose Camp green Lake over jail. He chose the camp because he thought it sounded like a fun place and he thought there would be a lake to swim in, but he was wrong. There wasn't any lake at Camp Green Lake, just a bounch of dirt where the lake used to be. When Stanley got there and saw this place he blamed it on his "no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather", like he always did when something went wrong. The book is really telling two stories; one about Stanley and the other about his ancestors. The stories tell of the connection between the past and Stanley's present.
Stanley becomes friends with Zero, a young boy who is also at Camp Green Lake, while teaching him how to read and they decide to run away. There is no security at Camp Green Lake because there's not a town around for at least 100 miles and a person would die soon without water. While Stanley and Zero are hiding they find an onion field on a mountain and they stay up there for a while. They dig and find water about 5 feet underground. They eat the onions and drink the water to stay alive. While they are on the mountain they share stories about why they are at the camp. Stanley finds out that Zero did the theft of which Stanley was convicted.
This is my favorite book so far this year because it tells you that things work out for the best 99.9% of the time. This is a very important lesson for me and a lot of other people. I would definitely recommend this book to another student and maybe even another adult (my mom read it!) This book keeps you reading and after you finish it you want to read it again.
If you are looking for a wonderful and entertaining book, read Holes by Louis Sachar.
