Lord of the Flies
Lord of the flies is not your average children’s book. Even though it has the simple plot of kids trapped on an island, it confronts deep conflicts within human nature. The author opens the plot to what he thinks a crowd of kids would truly do rather than what is expected.

Golding includes all different kinds of strong characters that you could probably relate to in your daily life. The main character is just a normal boy named Ralph. He leads the tribe and directs them t what he thinks is right. His ‘best friend’ is a chubby bot named Piggy. Piggy is the stereotypical fat kid that all the boys pick on. He is the voice of reason throughout the book.

As the story unfolds new troubles arise. Nature and personal conflicts causes everyone to have a hard time.

The author creates the classic story that can fit into almost every audience. I highly recommend it to anyone who is in the mood for a twisted adventure.
