Summary
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.

The story was very good. The recording sounded like it was done in a bathroom with an inexpensive microphone.

A whole lot of boring talk just for some mild excitement toward the end, with an unsatisfactory end. The reader sounded bored by his own story. The message of the story was interesting and the pig head part was the coolest, I suggest you read this on your own, not this audio made it hard to enjoy.

Good book. However, I feel like the narrator was a little boring. Yes, it's cool that the author is the one narrating but he was very monotone and don't use much inflection. The only reason I used the audio book is bc I don't have time to read and when I'm at work I can just put my earbuds in and listen. If I had the time to read the book, trust me I would've read it and it would've been a much better experience.

It is so special to hear a book read by the author himself. Wonderful! A powerful story that everyone should read.

I read it in preparation as required reading for a course I'm going to teach. I'm glad to now know the story and to better understand what transpired on the island. It's not the kind of book I'd typically be drawn to but I get why it ended up in the canon. I appreciate that the writer also narrated but there were times he sounded utterly bored with his own story. I also grew quite annoyed at the overuse of the word 'ululation' in the last couple of chapters.

I think this is an exceptional account of a dystopic society.

Good light read - kept me wondering what would happen to them. Although nothing like the professional actors who read books now, I liked that the author was the reader because he put his intentions into the reading.

This book is good, but it is very slow moving and left unanswered questions through out the whole story. Sure its a great book, but in my opinion this book accomplished a two at the max.

A book that has long been on my reading list but that I have never gotten to. Audiobooks.com made it easy to to cross it off my list and I did not feel short changed because I listened instead of read. In fact, listening to some author himself read as well as provide first hand insights made it even better.
