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

A dark book displaying man's inherent evil. My favourite part? The ending - last page - the moment they've let go of all inhibitions and are then "saved", but are they really? Read full review

Again, i had to read this book for school. At first i wasn't a whole lot into the book, with Ralph and Piggy being more of a sense predictable, but as the book went closer and closer to the end i ... Read full review

I thought this would be a survival story from children's perpectives, how they do without rules (and I expected that to be kind of cute and thought-provoking?) but what I got was "Game of Thrones with ... Read full review

*Spoiler Alert* What do I think of this book? I don't particularly like William Golding, and I didn't particularly like this book, to be honest. I read this at twelve since I knew how prestigious and ... Read full review

User Review  - Robert Cohen - Goodreads

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

User Review  - Ubiquitousbastard - Goodreads

One of those books that is supposed to prove a point, yet I would much prefer the author to outright state it so we can all go "ohhh" rather than have to suffer through a crappy story. English kids on an island-I already want to stab myself. Kids go crazy with a pighead and a seashell-BLAAHHH! Read full review
