I loved reading Holes. It was full of adventure and that's good because I like adventure. It took me a while to understand it, but I could fully imagine it after a while. It gave me a bigger imagination. I could even imagine I was really there. I loved finding out what all of the characters nicknames were. My favorite character was "Twitch" because he always acted nervous and couldn't sit still. I wouldn't have liked to dig holes in the hot sun, but reading about other people digging holes is fine with me.
I would totally recommend this book. It's a great funny-mystery for fifth and sixth graders because you really have to pay attention to the plot. This is a great book for you if you like funny-mysteries with cool endings. It is also a good book for anyone who likes bad people turning truthful again.
