“The boy with fair hair lowered himself down the last few feet of rock and began to pick his way toward the lagoon.”
Synopsis (from Barnes&Noble.com): The classic tale of a group of English school boys who are left stranded on an unpopulated island, and who must confront not only the defects of their society but the defects of their own natures.
Random Thoughts: Creepy. As the boys degenerate into barbarians I knew where the book was headed, but I still couldn’t stop reading it. It was like watching a train wreck. I can’t say I enjoyed Lord of the Flies, but I’m glad I finally got around to reading it. However, I won’t be reading it again.
