Lord of the Flies By William Golding This was the most interesting book I have ever read It is sort of a cross between Alive and Hatchet Because the book is extremely addictive and written so superbly it did not take long for me to get into and finish it The characters were probably the most interesting element in Lord of the Flies All British and male the young boys in this story portray the savagery and sadistic nature to which all but a few succumb The other boys are the only symbol of sanity on the island There is also a very interesting conflict between Ralph and Jack In essence this is the eternal struggle between good and evil The ending of the novel concludes in a gut-wrenching showdown between the two The only thing I disliked about this book is that sometimes Goldings writing style was a little hard to follow The main problem was that the boys British accents made it difficult to understand what they meant This problem appeared in few spots however and for the most part the book was easy to read I think that males would enjoy this book mainly because of the fact that all the characters were boys It also appeals to a person with good literary insight who can understand Goldings symbolism This book also made a very good movie which portrays the story well I did have a favorite character in this book His name is Simon Simon is peculiar in that he likes to be alone and take long walks into the jungle while most of the other boys play He also discovers the beast that every one on the island fears Ultimately he discovers the true source of evil the Lord of the Flies and is later betrayed by his friends Being an enthusiastic and long time book reader I think Lord of the Flies
