Louis Sachar

The book Holes by Louis Sachar is a a great book. Stanley Yelnats is the son of a hopeful family and has the strggle to eat every day. When stanly was walking one day, he gets hit with something that will change him and his family for a long time.

This song Dig It Up is clearly relateable to this book. If you didnt know, in the song they are singing "dig it up" and at the camp their punioshment was to dig holes. Day after day, they dig holes as there so called "punishment" when really the Warden wants to find somthing hidden underneath.

Song by Sum 41 explains what stanley has to go through when he is accidently suspected as a theif. "In Too Deep" is saying that no one would believe him that he didn't do anything; he is too deep into his punishment. He is too deep into the case that there is no chance that he could be innocent.

The song Pumped Up kicks by Foster The People is during his time in camp. The warden and her two assitants have it all. When stanley is taken to the warden's office she had airconditioning, which was a very speacial thing for him. He hasn't been in those kind of tempatures for a wile. This song relates because the warden he much mor "pumped up kicks"then them.

I will Survive by Gloria Gaynor is how Stanly feels while he is at camp. He isn't gonna give up, but he is gonna pay for his crime even though it wasnt his fault. At Camp Green Lake it's awfully hot, but that doesnt slow Stanly down, he fights way to get out of there.

The song I Wont Give Up by Jason Mraz relates to the story and how he isn't giving up on his family. Stanley is always thinking of his family and trying to send letters to them. He knows they struggle with him, and he doesnt have a clue how they are without him.


"Holes is an excellent book. It is suspenseful, interesting,and not one chapter is even the slightest bit boring. You will find that you will want to read this book multiple times."

"What an awesome read for all ages."

"This book is a timeless treasure. A incredible story of injustice that was turned into something positive. Great story. Good for people, 1-100!!!"

"The book was pretty good. Most of the time in the book, you never knew what was going to happen."



I give this book a 5/5 stars because it was a funny and interesting book. Louis Sachar wrote the book in a way that made me feel like i actually wanted to read it. (not many books do that)
