Lord of the Flies

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.

    I've read that this book is now required reading for High School students and since I've experienced this book for the first time, I can see its application. The story is about a group of boys shipwrecked on an island who try to form their own society, and eventually fail miserably. They make careless mistakes in their environment and with each other that lead to this failure. The story is entertaining and offers many lessons in leadership, why laws are important and that we must all participate in a society or be doomed to savagery.

    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.

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

  • Tara C

    it is a good book. I love it but I didn't want to read it in the beginning=_= but it really is a good book.

  • Nia H

    Great book with mild description love it ! The story though old has great characters and many conflicts that make it more interesting as the boys grow and have to work together

  • Micaela McLean

    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.

  • Cindy Bellamy

    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.
