Lord of the Flies

by William Golding
Lord of the Flies - William Golding 7.20   214

An adventure tale in its purest form, a thrilling and elegantly told account of a group of British schoolboys marooned on a tropical island. Alone in a world of uncharted possibilities, devoid of adult supervision or rules, the boys begin to forge their own society, their own rules, their own rituals. With this seemingly romantic premise, Golding exposes the duality of human nature itself — the dark, eternal divide between order and chaos, intellect and instinct, structure and savagery.
