Read Lord of the Flies by William Golding Online

Lord of the Flies

At the dawn of the next world war, a plane crashes on an uncharted island, stranding a group of schoolboys. At first, with no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate; this far from civilization the boys can do anything they want. Anything. They attempt to forge their own society, failing, however, in the face of terror, sin and evil. And as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins its reign, the hope of adventure seems as far from reality as the hope of being rescued. Labeled a parable, an allegory, a myth, a morality tale, a parody, a political treatise, even a vision of the apocalypse, Lord of the Flies is perhaps our most memorable tale about the end of innocence, the darkness of mans heart....

Lord of the Flies Reviews

    "We did everything adults would do. What went wrong?"

    You did everything adults would do. That's what went wrong.

    There is much to be said against this novel, and it has been said, eloquently, poignantly, many times. Let me make a case for keeping it on the curriculum despite the dated language, the graphic violence, the author's personality...

    There are two myths about adolescents, and this novel does away with them in a - admittedly - drastic way. First of all, there is no general innocence in a

    Maybe there is a beast… maybe it's only us.

    This book doesn't fall under horror category, right? Then why did it scare living crap out of me?

    Lord of the Flies is a story about a group of boys who get marooned on one island after their plane crashed. Now, from the first page of this book, I had this uneasy feeling for some reason. And the more I read, the more that feeling grew. I've already heard that this book was not an easy book to read and that there were some pretty disturbing scenes. But st

    Lectura con el grupo PopSugar Reading Challenge en Español

    En este mundo hay libro de los que nunca se duda el porque son clásicos y éste es uno de ellos. Con una premisa que ha sido explotadísima durante años: cómo hace un grupo de personas para sobrevivir en un ambiente aislado y reducido en recursos; hoy en día tenemos ejemplos como TWD y Lost para alimentarnos de esta idea germinal, pero ninguno de ellos logra lo que Golding hizo en este libro, que es mostrar claramente como se va perdiendo l

    This book is horrifying. I'm scared like hell. Totally.

    I was expecting an adventure book telling about some children who got stranded in an island, but ended up with goosebumps.

    A bit of synopsis: A number of English school boys suffered from a plane accident causing them to get stranded in an uninhibited island. The period was maybe during the World War II. Trying to be civilized, they elected a leader for themselves as well started the division of tasks (hunters, fire-watchers, etc). Things tur

    I HATE THIS BOOK!!!

  • Helen (Helena/Nell)

    Over the years I must have read this book five or six times. Last night I was reading it on a train with a highlighter in my hand, because I decided to teach it this year again. Teachers wreck books, of course. We all know that. On the other hand, whatever you have to study-read, you tend to carry a bit of it with you. You don't forget that book, at least. Although I must add, that it's quite risky introducing to a Scottish classroom a book with the memorable words: "The English are best at ever ...more

  • Nora

    I read this book a long time ago, long enough to where I barely remembered anything past the basic premise. So I picked it up again, only to wish I hadn't. There's a reason why they teach this book in middle school--in order to enjoy this book, one's intellectual cognizance must be that of a child, because otherwise you'll spend the entire time picking out everything that's wrong with the book. And there's a lot to pick out.

    From what little of the story that is actually coherent, I can see why t

    I just don't buy it.

    This book is famous for unmasking what brutes we are, just under the surface, but, well, for all the hype, it just isn't convincing. People--even teenage boys--just aren't as savage as Golding seems to want us to believe, and nothing in this book persuades me otherwise.

    Perhaps if I'd gone to English boarding school I'd feel differently--but then that's the real irony of this book, that the brutality from which the British Empire was supposed to save so many people and culture
