Though well written I didn't enjoy this book at all. I do believe that the movie was much better because I felt that it was more exciting and interesting. I was mostly bored while reading this book and at the end of each chapter I had the sudden urge to give up on the book and put it down. I had high hopes that this book would be one to remember but it was unfortunately a disappointment. The plot was quite unusual and original but all of the details put into the book made it so boring and dull. This book is not one of the worst that I have come across but I am definitely not impressed and satisfied with this book. I do not recommend this book to other readers.

It was all because of his "not-so-good-pig-stealing" great-great-grandfather who made Stanley Yelnats end up in the wrong place at the wrong time. I found some connections between the characters, like Stanley, Zero, Elya Yelnats (Stanley's great-great-grandfather), and Madame Zeroni (Zero's great-great-great-grandmother).

Stanley has to go to Camp Green Lake, a boys' detention center under a curse that began with his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing great-great-grandfather. The boys build character daily by digging holes that are exactly five feet wide and five feet deep under a dried up lake because the Warden is looking for something.
