{Read epub} Lord of the Flies Author William Golding – Intimatenights.co.uk

Lord of the Flies 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 the boys can do anything they want Anything They attempt to forge their own society, failing, however, in the face of terror, sin and evil And as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins its reign, the hope of adventure seems as far from reality as the hope of being rescued Labeled a parable, an allegory, a myth, a morality tale, a parody, a political treatise, even a vision of the apocalypse, Lord of the Flies is perhaps our most memorable novel about the end of innocence, the darkness of man s heart

    Kids are evil Don t you know I ve just finished rereading this book for my book club but, to be honest, I ve liked it ever since my class were made to read it in high school Overall, Lord of the Flies doesn t seem to be very popular, but I ve always liked the almost Hobbesian look

    I read this book a long time ago, long enough to where I barely remembered anything past the basic premise So I picked it up again, only to wish I hadn t There s a reason why they teach this book in middle school in order to enjoy this book, one s intellectual cognizance must be that of

    Years after I read this masterpiece, it is still chilling Golding spins a yarn that could have been told centuries ago, primal human nature unmoored from civilization does not take long to break away and devolve into a feral thing.As good today, and as haunting, as it was when it was published in 1954 This should be on a l
