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.

    I enjoyed this book very much but the ending was shocking and disappointing to me. I feel there could have been a more exciting way to end the book. I was definitely shocked by the ending but it was not at all how i wanted the book to end. Other than the ending i loved he thrill and message of the story.

    We read this in high school English back in the 70s. It’s a unique classic that if you read it, you’ll never forget it.

    The first half of the book was subtle, without a lot of dialogue. Then around chapter eight or nine stuff gets real and you FEEL the emotions of the characters. Amazing book.
  • Best to read on spare time

    An amazing piece of literature with the power to change people. It shows what people would do if faced with bad circumstances. It is vivid with detail and has an incredible story. A Powerful Book with a more powerful meaning.
