'Lord of the Flies' by William Golding
October 20-22, 225 pages

The good thing about this venture, sorry, one of the many good things, is that I get to read books that I really should have read but never have. 'Lord of the Flies' is one of these.

I am glad I eventually read it. It's very good. A real modern classic. So much symbolism.

This novel is quite confronting. It is concerning how the boys' sense of order and morals quickly collapse. Shows what human nature can make you do.

I really enjoyed this. Definitely (hopefully) will read it again.

Except I haven't been able to get the hymn, 'Lord of the Dance' out of my head all week!
