Lord of the Flies Centenary Edition
The classic novel by William Golding
With a new Introduction by Stephen King
"To me Lord of the Flies has always represented what novels are for, what makes them indispensable." -Stephen King
Golding's classic, startling, and perennially bestselling portrait of human nature remains as provocative today as when it was first published. This beautiful new edition features French flaps and rough fronts, making it a must-have for fans of this seminal work.
Lord of the Flies remains as provocative today as when it was first published in 1954, igniting passionate debate with its startling, brutal portrait of human nature. Though critically acclaimed, it was largely ignored upon its initial publication. Yet soon it became a cult favorite among both students and literary critics who compared it to J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye in its influence on modern thought and literature.
Labeled a parable, an allegory, a myth, a morality tale, a parody, a political treatise, even a vision of the apocalypse, Lord of the Flies has established itself as a true classic.
What people are saying - Write a review
A wonderfully horrific book about human nature, the story explores the degeneration of a group of teenagers stranded on a lonely island.
This book is captivating and riveting. What a group of school boys can do to themselves in only a month on an island shows the sin in the human spirit. A must read!
