Lord of the Flies by William Golding



What it's about:
The classic, startling, and perennially bestselling portrait of human nature, a tale of a group of English school boys who are left stranded on an unpopulated island, and who must confront not only the defects of their society but the defects of their own natures.

My Thoughts:
I had never read this book before and I know almost everyone else in the world has. I didn't want to feel like I was missing out on a great book so I decided to pick it up. I was hoping for a really good epic "Lost on an Island" novel. However I hate to say it but..I couldn't stand this book. Now I admit that I didn't know much about this book before hand so maybe it was my fault but it just wasn't good in my opinion. The writing was confusing and way too "jumpy", I couldn't keep up with the characters and half the time I forgot who was who (probably because I just didn't care enough) and to top it all off, I felt that it was the same plot points repeated about ten times to make up the book. So yeah, I didn't like it and I don't really recommend it.

I am interested in hearing other people's thoughts on it though and why you feel the way you do about it.
