The Lovereading4Kids comment
William Golding’s iconic and enduring novel is interesting in many ways. Firstly it was a debut book and secondly it was rejected by numerous publishers and editors before it was picked up off the ‘slush-pile’ by a young editor at Faber and Faber.
More than 50 years later the schoolboys to savages story is still relevant, disturbing and shocking.
Lord of The Flies by William Golding
Golding's best-known novel is the story of a group of boys who, after a plane crash, set up a fragile community on a previously uninhabited island. As memories of home recede and the blood from frenzied pig-hunts arouses them, the boys' childish fear turns into something deeper and more primitive.
'Beautifully written, tragic and provocative.' E.M. Forster
'Beautiful and desperate... something quite out of the ordinary.' The Observer
