Lord of the Flies, unfortunately, was a novel I read quite late. However, despite everything, I love it a lot, and I won’t be able to forget it for a long time. The reason why Lord of the Flies is still so popular says a lot about it.
All of the characters are unique and unforgettable. In each one, you’ll see either yourself or someone you know. It is also an interesting feeling to see clearly what lies deep within a human being – no matter if its a child, youngster or adult. While reading the overwhelming attitude of people and societies confused about common sense; you will turn the people who do not give up their ideals into heroes at any cost. I recommend it to everyone. Enjoy!
Lord of the Flies
A plane crashes on an uninhabited island and the only survivors. A group of schoolboys, assemble on the beach and wait to be rescued. By day they inhabit a land of bright fantastic birds. And dark blue seas, but at night their dreams are haunted by the image of a terrifying beast.
In this, his first novel, William Golding gave the traditional adventure story an ironic, devastating twist. The boys’ delicate sense of order fades, and their childish fears are transformed into something deeper and more primitive. Their games take on a horrible significance, and before long the well-so behaved. Party of schoolboys has turned into a tribe of faceless, murderous savages.
First published in 1954, Lord of the Flies is now recognized as a classic, so one of the most celebrated of all modern novels.
Sir William Gerald Golding, CBE was a British novelist, playwright, and poet. Best known for his debut novel Lord of the Flies, he would go on to publish another eleven novels in his lifetime.
