Publisher Description

William Golding's classic novel of primitive savagery and survival is one of the most vividly realized and riveting works in modern fiction. The tale begins after a plane wreck deposits a group of English school boys, aged six to twelve on an isolated tropical island. Their struggle to survive and impose order quickly evolves from a battle against nature into a battle against their own primitive instincts. Golding's portrayal of the collapse of social order into chaos draws the fine line between innocence and savagery.

Author as narrator?

This author should not have narrated his own book. The listener hears frequent sighs and sniffles and just not a professional reading. I found it tough to listen to and wish a professional narrator had done the job and not the author. Just cause you wrote a good book doesn’t mean you should narrate it too. Terrible choice. Ruined a good story
