The only survivors are a group of schoolboys. At first they revel in the freedom and celebrate the absence of grown-ups. Soon though, as the boys' fragile sense of order begins to collapse, their fears start to take on a sinister, primitive significance. Suddenly, the world of cricket, homework and adventure stories seems a long way away. The boys are faced with a more pressing reality - survival - and the appearance of a terrifying beast who haunts their dreams.Hide synopsis

Once again I picked up this book to complete my education about classic novel. I'm pretty much fluent in "modern" English, but I have to say that reading that novel was particular hard with my non-native English, and it made a less enjoyable read (I'm writing this as a warning to other ESL readers). ...
When I was in high school - my Honor's program made us read particular books over the summer months & during the year. I was SO not interested in reading back then. I would do anything I could to prevent reading Jane Eyre, The Old Man & The Sea, etc.... but this book - this is probably the book that ...
A classic allegory, this book portrays the struggle between the instincts of morality and savagery that rages within every human being. When a plane carrying a group of English school boys crashes on an uninhabited island, the boys, free of adults, must decide how to survive. At its basest at battle ...
I remember hearing that this book was about little boys who were cannibals. I was instantly turned off. Of course, this was assigned in my senior English class. It was an easy read, especially when compared to the other books we had to read (Frankenstein, Crime and Punishment, Hamlet). It's easy to ...
