Somehow, I missed this book during my school years. I remember seeing stacks of them in our school, but it was never assigned in one of my classes. I can see why it is a staple of high school curriculums, however, since it’s themes are easily seen and interpreted. There is plenty to discuss.I would ...

It might be regarded as a classic book, but "Lord of the Flies" is not what I would describe as an easy read. Confronting the reader, as William Golding does, with a rather bleak and brutal portrayal of youth unfettered by the boundaries of social norms. Indeed, this novel suggests we may remain a v...

Team reading this one with my 12-year-old. He doesn't love it, and I don't blame him, really. The language and tendency to use a bunch of words with out saying anything is kind of grating. According to my pre-teen: "This author just says 'and' over and over. And this and this and that and that." B...

An utterly chilling take on the dark(er) side of playground squabbles. I'm usually loath to describe any book as having any impact on my outlook, as I mainly read books for pleasure, not for life lessons. But LotF is an exception. The slow, sickening reveal of the bottomless pit that is human behavi...

The themes and moral of the story are still reverent to today's time period. A plane crashes on a remote island wi...

Well, this wasn't exactly enjoyable, but it certainly is a classic worth reading. What I really like about this book is that it is GREAT for discussions. Some classics that we read in school, I just think aren't all that interesting to discuss. But Lord of the Flies actually is really thought prov...

Well thank goodness for short books. I loved The Lord of the Rings, but 1,000 plus pages is a lot to get through. This whole book felt more like a short story to me (that is not a complaint by the way) and I was able to get through it in about 2 and a half hours.Though I liked the book (4.5 stars) I...

Lord of the Flies is of course about a group of English schoolboys that survive a plane crash and get stranded on an island. At its core the book is about the innocence of youth and its development when they are forced inadvertently to mimic certain cultures of human society just to survive, as they...

Damn it! This storyline is pretty scary. A person could find so many symbolisms for life themes, but also I can just imagine real people eroding into these base versions of themselves in a situation like this. I'm sure this story helped to inspire many of our modern reads.
