Adventure. Danger. Poisonous lizards? This and much more are included in the exciting novel called Holes. The book is based on a character named Stanley and the camp he goes to for getting in trouble. Disney released the movie version of Holes in 2003. The movie was fairly similar to the book but there were some differences. I’m going to focus on the similarities between the book and movie. The three main similarities between the book Holes and the movie Holes are the camp Stanley goes to, the way he is treated at the camp, and the treasure Stanley and Zero find in the end.
In the story, our main character Stanley gets in trouble for doing something he did not do. He happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. He is found guilty and sentenced to spend time at a boy’s detention camp. In both the movie and the book the camp is portrayed in the same way. The camp is out in the middle of what used to be a lake but is now a desert. The camp has no walls. All the rules Stanley and the other inmates have to follow are the same in both the movie and book. The people in charge at the camp are also the same in both book and movie version of this story.
At camp, the other boys in both the book and movie version of the story give Stanley a hard time. This is an evident similarity between the book and movie. The people that are in charge of the boys in the detention camp are not the nicest of people and they are very strict with the boys. They also make the boys dig a big hole everyday they are at the detention camp in both versions of the story. Another way the boys are treated the same in both the book and movie is in the end when the camp boss wants to leave Zero and Stanley out in the desert and not report they are missing. In both versions the boys run away and the boss does not want to do the right thing and report they are gone.
The third major similarity I noticed between the book and movie version of Holes was at the end of the book when Stanley and Zero found the buried treasure. In the book it was in the last place the boys dug holes. This was the same in the movie. Also in both versions, poisonous lizards walk all over the two boys as they are holding the treasure. The movie was cool because you could really see what it was like to have lizards crawling all over you. The actual treasure that was found by both boys was the same in both book and movie.
The book was exciting how it kept going back and forth in time throughout the chapters. In the movie, Disney decided to do the same thing and flash back into the past. This story is very gripping and catches audiences right from the beginning. The movie was a great adaptation for the book, it was very similar and I think that was a good choice. I’m glad that the movie kept the camp, the people, and the treasure plotlines the same as they were presented in the book.
