fiddler's review of Holes

A Circular Tale


5out of 5

by fiddler on March 7, 2009

By circular, I mean, everything fits together in the end. It's one of those stories where multiple things are happening at once, many of which do not make much sense or do not mean much until later on.

It's an element that makes this book so irresistibly. Alongside sympathizing with the protagonist Stanley who was wrongfully accused of a crime, the readers learn the complexities of history and how it ties in to the present.

Perhaps, bad luck does exist. But luck isn't absolute.

I'd definitely recommend this for the late elementary school-middle school audience. It's a nurturing perspective for the growing mind of a child. Loved it growing up!
