    Hah! I guess this is one that requires a child (or an adult willing to suspend disbelief) to appreciate it.

    Just found the One Star Reviews page. Awesome idea! And I got Holes right away :) Some people are way to literal to be reading fiction!

    I LOVE this series of posts. Holes by Louis Sachar? I haven’t it yet but it’s on my pile.
