Holes Chapter 29 Summary

  • We are back in Stanley's story now and also in Part 2 of the novel ("The Last Hole").
  • Stanley and the other boys are – you guessed it! – out on the lake digging. There is a storm off in the distance, and the boys joke about the chance of rain coming their way. Rain at Camp Green Lake? Yeah, right.
  • But wait, this is cool: during a lightning flash, Stanley thinks he sees a strange rock formation on one of the mountain peaks way off in the distance. It looks like a giant fist giving a thumbs-up. (We told you it was cool.)
  • Stanley thinks about his great-grandfather telling people that he found refuge on God's thumb. No one ever knew what he meant.
