Golding shares one of the most important stories ever written in Lord of the Flies. The premise is a group of boys stranded on a desert island, and what transpires before their rescue. This is not The Swiss Family Robinson, however...it is a very dark book.
Dystopia and politics, adventure and mystery are all found within these pages. I read Lord of the Flies as a child, but didn't really understand it fully until I read it again as an adult. This story is exactly what might happen if humanity were left to our own devices. Innocence can be corrupted by power at any age. Happy reading.
