First published in 1954, Lord of the Flies is one of the most celebrated and widely read of modern classics.

A plane crashes on an uninhabited island and the only survivors, a group of schoolboys, assemble on the beach and wait to be rescued. By day they inhabit a land of bright fantastic birds and dark blue seas, but at night their dreams are haunted by the image of a terrifying beast.

In this, his first novel, William Golding gave the traditional adventure story an ironic, devastating twist. The boys' delicate sense of order fades, and their childish fears are transformed into something deeper and more primitive. Their games take on a horrible significance, and before long the well-behaved party of schoolboys has turned into a tribe of faceless, murderous savages.

I have read my copy so many times it has fallen apart! This novel focuses on a group of boys stranded on a uninhabited island. They are left to fend for themselves, resulting in a slow breakdown of the civilised society they have created. Explores the dark side of human nature, and shows what we are all capable of. This classic is a must read! - Lynda (QBD)
