In this essay I will talk about if digging holes is going to help building a character. I will also examine Stanley, and some of the characters if they changed and develop or remained the same. At last I will talk about who my favourite character is and why.
In the novella “the holes” the boys were told that they dug to build character, in my opinion I think that this statement is somehow true.
People builds character different ways, either they will do the hard way or the easy way. In this novella we see that the boys build character in the hard way by digging holes in the hot sun.
However not everyone builds their character in a positive way. In this novella for instance we see that some people are more manipulative then others and some are more caring.
