KINDLE Û Holes By Louis Sachar Û Louis Sachar

Ing holes five feet wide and five feet deep It doesn't take long for Stanley to realize there's than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake The boys are digging holes because the warden is looking for something I knew of a friend who lost everything when her father started digging holes You see her dad was a treasure hunter And to be a treasure hunter you are supposed to be well euipped and with good manpower You must also be in possession of a reliable map and a lot of time You also need a lot of money to be able to acuire all the above things Unfortunately my friend's father only acuired a fake map swindlers for company and euipment worth nothing when you're digging the wrong hole Little by little my friend's dad used up all their savings and even lost his time for their family My friend and her siblings grew up and away from their dad All was lost true All that was left is a hole in my friend's heart There was once a treasure there I am sure but her father dug too deep it failed to see it sparkleThe Hole I've read however is not my friend's story It did not have a treasure map but it has a great plot It did talk of treasures the obvious would be the one buried There's a treasure in the form of friendship one covered in perseverance and another enclosed with hope If you add a bit of dust of fate with these treasures you will get the story of a boy named Stanley Yelnats the main protagonist in this novel I liked the presentation of the story the interconnectedness of their experiences It's an application of Newton's 3rd law of motion which states that for every action there is an eual and opposite reaction Just like how someone else's athlete's foot become the reason for another's sweet riches; how the despair of having been bullied be the same reason for his freedom; or how being the teacher he actually got the better lesson than he has bargained for Stanley did that and in the end he gained friends and respect All in all Holes is not about big excavations it's about filling the gaps It talked about racism crossing beyond borders It talked about family and camaraderie It talked about keeping your promises and breaking barriers It talked about being a better person And yes even added the perks of enjoying a big onion bulb When someone digs a hole out there in the vast universe there'd be a lot of soildirt displaced Imagine them as stories unburdened from some remote keeper So what do we do with these soildirtstory We place them inside our own gaps enriching us such that our hole becomes full we come out as a whole personPSIF you wonder about my friend last time I've heard their parents are together again He uit hunting for treasures and stuck with those that are far precious his own family
