This book is completely, utterly exotic. I have never read such a book -one that would send a shiver up my spine -and one that would also move me close to tears. This is the best book I have ever read in years. The 'savage significance' mentioned in the review was quite impulsive, and it took over the humane behavior of the schoolboys, which was the part where I was a bit freaked out. It was amazingly terrifying how these boys could stand to like make their friend the 'pig' and then make him go on all fours, hitting and chasing him with spears. The really moving part was when they were discovered on the island, and suddenly the other boys' conscience knocked on their doorsteps and Ralph broke down and cried. He must've gone a little nuts. I would have. Imagine being chased by your schoolmates who were acting like absolute barbarians, killing each other and torturing each other with spears and knives.
To "Piggy": RIP. :D
