Lord of the Flies

Lord of the Flies is the story of a group of boys who crash on an island with no adults. They have to fend for themselves in order to stay alive. The leader, Ralph, tries to keep everything under control, with his friend, Piggy. Will everything go according to plan? Will they make it or break it?

I believed Lord of the Flies was very well-written. It showed you how a human being would act if placed in the same situation. The book expresses the dramatization of the civil and barbaric side of the human being.

I would highly recommend this book to others because it makes you wonder how a group of humans would act in the same situation the other boys were in. Would we act the same? Or differently? I would recommend this book to readers ages thirteen and up due to the violence and language.
