Lord of the Flies

30 06 2008

As the first book written by William Golding, Lord of the Flies offers suspense, humor, and an unexpected perception into human nature. 

The novel starts off by introducing several British school boys, ranging between the ages of 5-12, who have plane-crashed onto an island with no means of communication – except for a signal fire – and no adults.  A power struggle is shown between two main characters, Jack and Ralph, as the children become anxious that no rescue will come for them, and  opinions differ as to what the most important aspect of life on the island is: control or order.  This novel is a classic example of Good versus Evil and those who become demoralized by temptation in order to survive.
