The changes in the scenes made it better because it gave more details. The main problem in the book Holes was that Stanley is sent to Camp Green Lake for something he did not do, and then he found out Zero took the shoes. The setting in the story Holes is mostly takes place on Green Lake, in Texas. It was in the late ninetieth and twentieth century. There are also flashbacks to scenes in Latvia in the mid to late ninetieth century.
Although Stanley always believes that he is unlucky and in the wrong place at the wrong time, the events in the book seem to be the result of fate’s reunification of members of the Yelnats and Zeroni families for the mutual benefit of both parties. Each coincidence in the book, including the shoes that Hector stole flying off the hood of a parked car and hitting Stanley on the head, is so unpredictable and unlikely that it appears fate is the determining factor in these characters’ lives.
