I personally loved this novel and I am
disappointed it's not higher, although I can understand why it isn't. People disagree with the point Golding
is trying to make (that savegery is in everyone and only civilisation can keep it in check) and many prefer
novels with more subtle symbolism and motifs. However if you haven't read this book, please do. You may just
find it amazing.

The plot follows a group of boys stranded
on a desert island, as their evacuation plane plummets into the wilderness during the war. As a student, the
reading of this book was compulsory for my exams, however I went out of my way to read it regardless of my
achedemia. I absoloutley loved it. It is an enthrilling read, prvoking insight and the questioning of
society. Aspects of their normal lives such as adults, technology, order and uniform are obscured, as they
are forced to produce a society amongst themselves. It represents the idea that when the social conditioning,
conformity, and order of an everyday society is stripped away, we are all savages at heart. Not long through
the book, the themes of civillisation and savagery are distinguished, as Ralph, Piggy and simon champion
communication, rules, and the idea of being rescued. However, Jack + his hunters are reduced to the primitive
extreme of mankind, violent, and ruthless, fuelled by the thrill of hunting pigs. The binary opposition is
heightened by fear, fear of the unknown, as we see how fear can tear apart a society. A great read, highly

At first i found the book started a bit slow
but after the first 30 pages i was able to feel the tragic aspect of the caracters ( especially ralph, piggy
and simon) situation as the group divided and became barbaric. I thought it was a good

This 'man's inhumanity to man' theme is
constant and recurrent throughout the vast bulk of Golding's work. This is a noteworthy introduction to it. I
seem to recall it was one of the set texts when I was at school. I warmed to the theme and later went on to
tackle some of Goldings other work, most notable of which the rather more weighty 'Rights of Passage' - for
which he won the Nobel Prize. Again, this theme of calous and mindless brutality prevails. For Golding it
seems have been something of an obsession. I'd certainly happily recommend Lord of the Flies to anyone under
16 and hope they'd learn something about human nature from it.

The Lord of the Flies is a story of young boys
between the ages of 6 and 12 who are stranded on a deserted island with no adults. Ralph, one of the
older boys and the voice of reason, emerges as chief and insists upon keeping a fire lit at all times so the
boys can be rescued. Jack, the protagonist, emerges as a bloodthirsty hunter who is able to keep the
children fed. The children have no choice but to turn on Ralph and follow the cruel and savage Jack to
the point that Jack and others fear for their lives.
This is an interesting, albeit depressing, story on human nature and
illustrates what can happen to the souls of men, even young men, in times of desperation when things go horribly
wrong. While not my favorite book , it is worth the read. It can easily be read in a few

This is a book about a group of
young boys stranded on a desert island, when taken at face value. In truth this novel dives to a much greater
depth than recalling the experiences of these boys. The events provide edge of the seat, tense scenarios that
will leave the reader eager to read on. Of course this book holds greater meaning than to merely entertain.
Golding is highlighting civilisations inability to be civilised. This takes the form of a majority of the
boys who become savages in the absence of authority figures who, in spite of some sensible boys' attempts to
restore calm and rationality, break away and act like irrational maniacs. The theme of good and evil is at
the heart of the book and Golding fills it with irony and humour in an attempt to attack political
irrationality and understand that there are still good people trying to do the right thing in the face of
evil in a world on the verge of madness if not there already.

This novel greets you with an interesting and
solid beginning and continues to entertain with vivid description of every character in detail. In
reading you'll find an attachment to Ralph, the hero, and fear of Jack, the antagonist. Each page is
filled with challenges for the boys and you find yourself rooting for not only their survival, but their
wellbeing. The disingration of their civilization culminates to an exciting climax and most unexpected
ending. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to all readers over the age of
