I am a big fan of the movie "Holes" For me it is an example of well written fiction. It's a nice tight story with no loose plot lines.
I decided to read the novel to discover the author's original story. I was surprised to see how close the novel and the film were to each other.
Reading the book was just like seeing the movie again.
There are a few minor differences, but nothing that that distracts from the original plot.
Although the target audience for the novel is children and young adults, I think adults would appreciate reading a good story, well written.
There is a sequel to Holes titled Small Steps.
