Through the haunting story of a group of schoolboys stranded on an island, Golding’s ever-relevant tale of survival and power explores the fragility of moral and social codes, illuminating both the darkest corners of the human mind and its infinite aptitude for hope and compassion.

“A Meditation on Human Nature...”

This had been yet another classic which I hadn’t read, and yet it is a brilliant book. It is very simple on one level, and extremely symbolic and allegorical on another. On the face of it, a plane load of boys crashes... More
