Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lord of the Flies is one of my favorite books. I still read it every couple of years." 
—Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games trilogy

"I finished the last half of Lord of the Flies in a single afternoon, my eyes wide, my heart pounding, not thinking, just inhaling....My rule of thumb as a writer and reader—largely formed by Lord of the Flies—is feel it first, think about it later." 
Stephen King

"This brilliant work is a frightening parody on man's return [in a few weeks] to that state of darkness from which it took him thousands of years to emerge. Fully to succeed, a fantasy must approach very close to reality. Lord of the Flies does. It must also be superbly written. It is." 
The New York Times Book Review

About the Author

Sir William Golding was born in Cornwall in 1911. He started writing at the age of seven, but following the wishes of his parents, studied natural sciences and English at Oxford. He served in World War II and following the war, returned to writing and teaching. By the time Lord of the Flies was finally accepted for publication in 1954, it had been turned down by more than twenty publishers. The book became an immediate bestseller. In 1983, Golding was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature, largely based on this book. He was knighted in 1988 and died in 1993.

1.0 out of 5 stars Came damaged and misprinted
By In my opinion on January 30, 2020
I purchased this book for my sons required reading for English. The book was misprinted and damaged. This did not show up until chapter 19. There are two chapter 19 pages and all pages from 207-215 are duplicated but the second set of pages is in the book backwards and ripped. We can’t tell if it’s missing any pages. My son needs this for his class and now I’ll have to go buy another copy so he won’t get behind.
