Lord of the Flies

by William Golding

4.4/5

A plane crashes on a desert island and the only survivors, a group of schoolboys, assemble on the beach and wait to be rescued. By day they inhabit a land of bright fantastic birds and dark blue seas, but at night their dreams are haunted by the image of a terrifying beast.

“We did everything adults would do. What went wrong?”

William Golding, Lord of the Flies
