Golding depicts in a nasty and disturbing way a group of "civilized" youngsters morphing into animals (not literally). One has to question that if our laws and societal rules were somehow taken away, would we digress to survival of the fittest? Although not the quickest read, this book will certainly cause you to think about societal constructs we create and how willing we are to uphold them in a time of crisis. Recommended for those who appreciate classics and those who want a little something more to think about.

Human nature is evil! Want a classic book on what man does without law and authority? Want a classic book on what is in the heart of a man? Want a classic book that makes a powerful statement on what little kids will do to each other if not taught to be good and to love? Want a classic book on what man continues to do and will continue to do each other til' the good Lord comes back and makes things right? Read this book.

One of the books I was forced to read in school that I ended up loving so much I read it again as an adult!

Most certainly NOT a "feel good" story, but still (or perhaps in spite of that fact), Lord of the Flies is one of my all-time favorite books. Golding's characters are so vivid and the storyline is eerie and haunting. It absolutely deserves its title as one of the great classics of all time.

A classic story of the beasts that live within. Fiction doesn't straddle the line between Art and Life any better than this story.
