Great book and an easy read. I finished the book in four days. Welcome to a world where kids are stranded on an Island. Meet Jack, Ralph, Roger, Piggy, and Samneric. These characters will captivate you and also break your heart!
I am personally not a big fan of this book. I think it is an interesting book to think about and discuss, but there wasn't a whole lot to keep me invested in the story. Great concept, decent execution, pretty dry writing. It didn't end where I thought (and hoped) it was going to. I also recommend NOT listening to it on audiobook because William Goulding's voice will drive you nuts!
the book is so bloated with unnecessary words and words that dont make any sense. for example ' a cracked twig and what might be the impression of one side of a hoof. He lowered his chin and stared at the traces as though he would force them to speak to
him. Then dog-like, uncomfortably on all fours yet unheeding his discomfort, he stole forward five yards and stopped. Here was loop of creeper with a tendril pendant from a node. The tendril was polished on the underside' its too bloated and is not worthwhile for todays kids to read
