Lord of the Flies- Book Review

I recently read the book Lord of the Flies by William Golding.

This novel is about 184 pages long.

A plane full of school boys crashes on a remote island with no adults or any other people. The boys call Ralph to be their chief. Ralph and another boy named Jack have disagreements that lead to loss and destruction.

+ The book has a good pace.

+ The characters were very good.

+ The book is exciting.

–  It is a little sad.

I think that this book teaches us a good lesson about leadership and religion. When we choose leaders who are corrupt, our society will fall. We need to have firm beliefs. In the book, the boys don’t really have a religion, but as the book progresses they come to almost worship the excitement and thrill of hunting and killing pigs. This leads to much loss.

I really liked this book, because it is almost… crude. It is a bit shocking, but I think that is to teach a lesson. I also really liked it, because it reminded me of the TV series, Lost.

What do you like about this book? Did you enjoy it?

Author profile

I am 19 years old. I would describe myself as a spunky and happy person. I love to read, draw, play the piano, and be outside. I love music, especially good ole classic rock. You can't go wrong with a saxophone and guitar solo in one song (i am looking at you Pink Floyd).

    I thought it was interesting to read, though it made me a little sad and bitter about society unfortunately.
