I think this was one of the best books I have ever read. It was a little slow at the start and confusing when it kept skipping from the present to the past. My favorite part is when Stanley and Zigzag escapes and climb up a giant mountain. They don't talk about the warden a lot. The warden is quiet and very mean. The councilors rely don't care about the kids they just want something that is hidden in the dirt. They just throw away Zigzags file when he runs away. As I read this book, it made me think how hard it could really be for some of those kids. This would be a great book for all ages. My dad even liked the book. The book is boring at the start but it gets better. Holes has lots of exciting parts. The characters are even interesting. The book is not like any book I have ever read. The characters are all original. The book goes back in time a lot and gets confusing but it all makes sense at the end. They don't tell a lot about the warden in the book in till the end.
