Publisher Description

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.

Mia_Walker ,

It wasn’t bad

The book wasn’t terrible! Butt it took me a minute to get into it. Saying this, once you do, you’ll never be able to put it down.

Prophet Amos ,

EXCELLENT BOOK ON DICTATORSHIP

It details how a complete dictaorship is a catastrophe, which leads to death and destruction to all those, who disagree or nonconform.

Dog man is awsome ,

Lord of the Flies

The amount of savagery in this book is perfect. The reason why he made it that way is because it wouldn’t be unique. If it was G rated then it wouldn’t have the same impact it if it was that way. It would be boring if it was G rated. Also kids these days can’t handle the intensity of this book. That’s why some schools have banned other great books like Call of the Wild or White Fang.

Note to kids ( most not all)

Guys stop being snowflakes, schools ban Dr. Seuss’s books... and that is how crazy our world is becoming.
I bet by the time I’m 80 they will ban stuff like Barney the dinosaur because it’s “ inappropriate and scary “
Yeah, a talking Dinosaur is scary.
Anyway, if you completed this book then GOOD JOB.
