there needs to be more pages on the preview so people can look at the book after they read it already

Pretty good just wished that more of the early story was somewhat "Action packed" but I guess every book starts average. -Nick

Despite being warned by my English teacher that this book is a "boy book", I absolutely loved this book. The characters were realistic and attractive and the simple story plot was suspenseful and thrilling. I can see why this book is considered a classic, Golding was able to capture the dark, corrupt side of human savagery in this novel and hide it under the guise of a innocent story of British schoolboys stranded on an island.

I think this book shows that deep inside everyone there is a potential for great evil, this book is complex in many ways & very controversial for a book that came out in the early 50s, Golding deserved all the praise he has gotten for this book.

This is a somewhat good book but it is a little overly descriptive and is hard to comprehend it.

This book is an excellent and deep psychological book, with Golding's trademark wonderful descriptions. A must read!

I read this book when I was about 12 years old because I was curious. That was 50 years ago. The book had a potent effect on me at that time and the effect became more visceral when I saw the film when it came out about 2 years later. The book and the original movie remain vivid in my memory like only a few others. Highly Recommended, though possibly not for the immature.
