Description

Golding’s iconic 1954 novel, now with a new foreword by Lois Lowry, remains one of the greatest books ever written for young adults and an unforgettable classic for readers of any age.
 
This edition includes a new Suggestions for Further Reading by Jennifer Buehler.

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 they can do anything they want. Anything. But as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins its reign, the hope of adventure seems as far removed from reality as the hope of being rescued.

    My favorite book ever since I was 11 years old. I was a very advanced reader and my dad told me to read it for a project. The description was brilliant, the characters felt so real, and the emotion and sense of reality were beyond compare any other book. The ending will make you sweat, then cry. The symbolism is exceptional. This is a novel that you will never forget.

    I had to read this for high school and didn't like it. Now keep mind it was written a LONG time ago so the language is much different than we use now. But the author made it very hard to know what's going on and had few descriptive words. I wouldn't suggest reading it on your spare time.

    Somewhat slow at first, but it picks up very quickly. A great read.

    A horrible book. It does not even deserve the one star. This book was the biggest waste of time.

    This book is truly amazing! A work of art! Since I saw the cover I knew that this book was going to be worth the read. The details and metaphors that Golding uses are truly astonishing. This is a must have read.
