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

I "read" this book back in middle school or high school. What that meant was I skimmed here and there, picked up the basic theme, then wrote a shitty report about it. I never sat down and "read" it ... Read full review

I loved this book. I opened it expecting a long and boring read, which I would then have to write a review for because of school. It was, admittedly, hard to pick up sometimes and make myself read it ... Read full review

It's 2016. As the thin veneer of civilized behavior slowly disintegrates around us, I thought it might be time to re-read Lord of the Flies, which I last read in 10th grade, (mumble mumble) years ago ... Read full review
