Lord of the Flies

Lord of the Flies is by William Golding. The classic tale of a group of young boys who when marooned on an island degenerate into anarchy. A must read tale that is as tragic and provocative as it is beautifully written. All of us see parts of ourselves in Ralph, Jack, Piggy, and Roger. What are we really when the facade of civilization is scraped away? Golding plumbs the heights and horrifying depths of human nature.

Ratings: 9th grade - 10 out of 10 - AC (mature thematic content) - MP (mild profanity) - V (violence).
