"A brilliant achievement. There is no question, kids will love Holes." (School Library Journal)
"Sachar inserts humor that gives the suspense steep edges; the tone is as full of surprises as the plot." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Beyer's buoyant, boyish manner ensures that Sachar's witty novel, winner of both the Newbery Medal and the National Book Award, makes a smooth transition to audio." (Publishers Weekly)
I really enjoyed the book. My students loved the story and we answered questions at the end of every chapter. I love the bookmark feature - makes teaching it a lot easier.
Addicted to Audible since 2009
I love the movie and loved the book just the same. A great story. Better yet, it's like three or four great stories that are all tied into one!
What a great book! All the kids in my family love it and so do I! The narrator is great, and the story is very, very fun.
I never thought I would enjoy this book as much as I have. I have listened to it at least 6 or 7 times now. The story is so amazing. I very much enjoy the narrator. If you have seen the movie you need to get the book.
This book wasn?t quite what I expected when I chose it ? a slightly more serious tone than I anticipated ? but it didn?t disappoint! All the threads of characters and their stories are really well woven together.
If I could have actually listened to it. Audible has made some changes, I have used it since it was bought by Amazon, but now it won't let me use my old password at all. It let me buy this with my Amazon ID, but it won't let me access it (which for me means putting it on iTunes for my iPod) with out using my old Audible password which it has stopped accepting. Very disappointed.
I'd love to know but I can't listen to it. I hear it is a good book.
I wouldn't know because I can't listen to it.
I'm disappointed I can't listen to it, even though I bought it. Actually this falls into the anger category as well.
