Holes Essay, Research Paper

Holes by Louis Sachar’s is a cool book. Stanley Yelnats is an unusual

hero-dogged by bad luck coming from an ancient family curse. He is overweight,

and unlikely to stick up for himself when challenged by the class bully; even

though he is a really big kid for his age. He was in the wrong place, at the

wrong time when a stolen pair of shoes lands on him after being thrown over an

over pass. Stanley later realizes they are Clyde Livingston shoes, the famous

baseball player. Stanley is unfairly sentenced to months of detention at Camp

Green Lake in Texas, where he’s forced to dig one hole in the rock-hard desert

soil every day. The hole must be exactly five feet in diameter, the distance

from the tip of his shovel to the top of the wooden handle. Each boy is forced

to dig until his hole is completed, no matter how long it takes. Stanley soon

begins to question why the warden is so interested in anything

"special" the boys find. According to the warden the digging

"builds character? but she has something else in mind. At the camp,

Stanley meets Zero, the boy that committed the boy that committed the crime that

Stanley was blamed for, for this was a fortunate event for Stanley becuase it

allowed him to break the ancient curse that was bringing him bad luck. the boy

that committed the crime that Stanley was blamed for. But their ancestors had

met before more than a 100 yeas ago lake. A curse was set on Stanley?s hole

family because the ancestor disobeyed Zero?s ancestor. The curse was that

Stanley?s family would get bad luck but the they broke it by doing what

Zero?s ancestor asked Stanley’s ancestor to do. Then Stanley finally found out

that Kate Barlow, a famous robber had buried her treasure on the lake.and that

is what the warden had looked for the whole time. Stanley was freed and his

horrible curse was broken. I liked how the author combined 3 stories in to one

by telling about the past and present. Louis Sachar’s made the story interesting

adding an interesting twist with the curse being broken.
