This is the controversial novel that tells the tale of a group of English schoolboys, aged 6 to 12, stranded on a lush but deserted Pactic island. It is a story of the descent into savagery, and the confused attempts to make sense of a terrifying situation. Many people found this book disturbing, and attempts to explain and disect this book swirled in the press for years. As this edition includes much analysis from many sources following the conclusion of the story, it is particularly valuable for a person interested in the impact it made in its time.
