Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Marvin is a nine year old boy who just got a new mountain bike. Now his friends think he's going to ride down Suicide Hill! What is Marvin going to do? The best part of the book was the most exciting, splendid, happy, amazing, proud, spectacular ride ever.
Holes was an awesome book! I loved it, and could not put it down. There was something to leave you hanging at the end of each chapter. It was a different plot and unpredictable. Read Holes if you want to be cliff-hung to death!
