    A plane crashes on a desert island and the only survivors, a group of schoolboys, assemble on the beach and wait to be rescued. By day they inhabit a land of bright fantastic birds and dark blue seas, but at night their dreams are haunted by the image of a terrifying beast. As the boys' delicate sense of order fades, so their childish dreams are transformed into something more primitive, and their behaviour starts to take on a murderous, savage significance. First published in 1954, Lord of the Flies is one of the most ... Show more

Non native language review

by Edd78 on Oct 1, 2009

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). ...

High School Mandatory Read that I LOVED

by carriej on Aug 25, 2009

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 ... More

Not about cannibalism

by mallorysusan on May 22, 2007

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 ... More
