GOLDING, William, Lord of the Flies (1954) Faber & Faber.
Mauricio A. García Blanco, 2º Bachillerato EFL
A small group of boys try to survive in an island after the plane that carried them crashed. The boys are left by themselves, with no adults, and they are unaware of the tremendous difficulties that they will have to go through.
My favourite part was when Piggy was not allowed to be a hunter and he was in charge of the smallest boys. I really liked it because we can see how happy Piggy was telling the kids what to do.
I will recommend this book to older teenagers and adults because it has some extra elements that you will only understand completely if you are a bit more mature.
