Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Golding's best-known novel is the story of a group of boys who, after a plane crash, set up a fragile community on a previously uninhabited island. As memories of home recede and the blood from frenzied pig-hunts arouses them, the boys' childish fear turns into something deeper and more primitive.

When I read this in my high school English class, my best friend and I were convinced "Lord of the Flies" was a religious metaphor, and everyone else thought we were crazy, until the teacher sided with us. I cannot emphasize how helpful it can be to read Messiah stories to question your own faith; this can be a chance to test your own beliefs, or if you aren't Christian, a great look at how Christianity uses themes that translate to great storytelling. The Bible is the most popular book of all time, you know!
