Lord of the Flies

Lord of the Flies

by William Golding
William Golding's classic novel about a group of English schoolboys who are stranded on a deserted island remains as relevant today as it was when it was first published in 1954. While at first the boys cooperate, the situation deteriorates as the boys allow their own wild sides to surface in this gripping commentary of human society.
