Description

Before The Hunger Games there was Lord of the Flies

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.

William Golding's compelling story about a group of very ordinary small boys marooned on a coral island has become a modern classic. At first it seems as though it is all going to be great fun; but the fun before long becomes furious and life on the island turns into a nightmare of panic and death. As ordinary standards of behaviour collapse, the whole world the boys know collapses with them—the world of cricket and homework and adventure stories—and another world is revealed beneath, primitive and terrible.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.

"Lord of the Flies is one of my favorite books. That was a big influence on me as a teenager, I still read it every couple of years." 
—Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games

"As exciting, relevant, and thought-provoking now as it was when Golding published it in 1954."
Stephen King

Customer Reviews

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.

Amazing book

I feel like I should have read this a long time ago. I'm glad that I finally got around to it.
