Lord of the Flies

By: William Golding

Why would you want to read this?

Lord of the Flies is a book about a group of young children whose plane crashed on an island. They are put to the test to see whether they survive or not in this strenuous situation. It is a rather interesting story that can make you ask yourself throughout the whole book, "What would I have done if this were to happen?" It is such a good read that in fact, in 1983 was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. If you are one who enjoys a piece with many twists and turns that will keep you on your feet from start till finish this is the book for you. This book was rated 4 out of 5 stars of 2,725 people. This means that 80% of the people that read Lord of the Flies liked it which is why odds are you will like it as well. The book has a bit of a dark mood to it because of some of the choices the children are forced to make throughout the story. Overall this is a fantastic book that I believe you will enjoy.
