Synopsis

William Golding's classic novel of primitive savagery and survival is one of the most vividly realized and riveting works in modern fiction. The tale begins after a plane wreck deposits a group of English school boys, aged six to twelve on an isolated tropical island. Their struggle to survive and impose order quickly evolves from a battle against nature into a battle against their own primitive instincts. Golding's portrayal of the collapse of social order into chaos draws the fine line between innocence and savagery.

I am in a college prep english glass at Juniata High School, and we are required to read 2 british novels a marking period. I chose this one just because I thought that the title of it made it sound bizarre. I really enjoyed reading this book it is now one of my favorites!!!
