Lord Of The Flies

I guess I must have missed out on something when I was a child. Apparently many people know what the Lord of the flies is but I just recently learned about this not so delightful tale. This book is about a band of British schoolboys that are stranded on an island. The Lord of The Flies can seem pretty hardcore.

All of the boys that are in this book are under 13. They have to come to some sort of government between the kids and the strong boys take over. The plan for the boys in the Lord of The Flies is to keep the fire burning bright enough so another ship can come and get them. Sadly enough they are scared into believing there is a monster on the island.

After reading a brief part of this book I came to the conclusion that this would not be something that my children would be reading. There was a little bit too much horror even for myself. If you are into that kind of thing the story is written quite well. Lord of the Flies is an allegorical novel by Nobel Prize-winning author William Golding.
