I just read the book Holes by Louis Sachar. I was so wowed by this book. I obviously missed the boat on this one, because every time I ask someone if they read it, they say they have. Lol.


I know there's a film. I was wondering if those who've seen it and read the book, is it worth seeing? Without giving away details.

I really enjoyed the movie. Louis Sachar wrote the screenplay, and it's very true to the book.

There's also a companion novel, Small Steps, about some of the characters in Holes.

I saw the movie several years before i ever read the book.  Both are great!
