Non native language review, Oct 1, 2009
by Edd78

"Once again I picked up this book to complete my education about classic novel. I'm pretty much fluent in "modern" English, but I have to say that reading that novel was particular hard with my non-native English, and it made a less enjoyable read (I'm writing this as a warning to other ESL readers).
Otherwise, I found the story hypnotic, and the author's take on the evolution of a children run society completely acurate."

High School Mandatory Read that I LOVED, Aug 25, 2009
by carriej

"When I was in high school - my Honor's program made us read particular books over the summer months & during the year. I was SO not interested in reading back then. I would do anything I could to prevent reading Jane Eyre, The Old Man & The Sea, etc.... but this book - this is probably the book that got me going. After reading this book, I realized - I just have to find the right books for me.

This book has it all -- it's a page turner!!!"

Superb!, Jun 15, 2009
by Jame

"A classic allegory, this book portrays the struggle between the instincts of morality and savagery that rages within every human being. When a plane carrying a group of English school boys crashes on an uninhabited island, the boys, free of adults, must decide how to survive. At its basest at battle between good and evil, this novel is an expert example of the most primitive battles that rage within us all."

Not about cannibalism, May 22, 2007
by mallorysusan

"I remember hearing that this book was about little boys who were cannibals. I was instantly turned off. Of course, this was assigned in my senior English class. It was an easy read, especially when compared to the other books we had to read (Frankenstein, Crime and Punishment, Hamlet). It's easy to understand the different metaphors and similes. I think the hardest thing to understand about this book is that these are little boys. Not grown men, but small boys who turn into savages without parental guidance. And for the record, I was proved wrong about the cannibalism thing. There is no such thing in this book, and ultimately, it was a great read."
