Golding’s iconic 1954 novel, now with a new foreword by Lois Lowry, remains one of the greatest books ever written for young adults and an unforgettable classic for readers of any age.
This edition includes a new Suggestions for Further Reading by Jennifer Buehler.
At the dawn of the next world war, a plane crashes on an uncharted island, stranding a group of schoolboys. At first, with no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate. This far from civilization they can do anything they want. Anything. But as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins its reign, the hope of adventure seems as far removed from reality as the hope of being rescued.

The Lord of the Flies
Fascinating book. It reflects the true nature of man, who when left alone without the influence of a higher spiritual law reverts to the animal instincts within us. It also exemplifies how Power can corrupt the soul and turn ordinary good people into power hungry tyrants, as was the case with Jack. Well written and held one's attention throughout.
A literary giant's masterpiece
This book was written by William Golding who was a literary giant and has my respect it has a solid plot and does not move too slow. He does not use nonsense words like "'nuff." he deserves everyones respect and those who disagree are intellectual eunuchs.
I feel like I should have read this a long time ago. I'm glad that I finally got around to it.
