Review: Lord Of The Flies

Lord of the Flies by William Golding
Genre: Classic – Dystopia
Pages: 182
Publication Date:  September 1954
My Rating: 2.5 of 5 stars
Read February 2017

Goodreads Synopsis:
When a plane crashes on a remote island, a small group of schoolboys are the sole survivors. From the prophetic Simon and virtuous Ralph to the lovable Piggy and brutish Jack, each of the boys attempts to establish control as the reality – and brutal savagery – of their situation sets in.
The boys’ struggle to find a way of existing in a community with no fixed boundaries invites readers to evaluate the concepts involved in social and political constructs and moral frameworks. Ideas of community, leadership, and the rule of law are called into question as the reader has to consider who has a right to power, why, and what the consequences of the acquisition of power may be. Often compared to Catcher in the Rye, L
ord of the Flies also represents a coming-of-age story of innocence lost.
