72virgins First of all: Have you ever been to a star trek convention? cuz your haircut looks like spock. it's awesome. Must make halloween easier.

Second: I hope your head replaces the boar's.

Crystal Christian I enjoyed your review quite a bit. You have a very intellectual tone and explain yourself thoroughly. I agree with many of your points and your interpretation of the meaning of this novel. Thank you for a wonderful review.

Amneris Lopez You convinced me... I'm reading this!


message 5: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Darn it. I was just thinking about Lost and how amazing that show was...until you told me it was nothing like it. :]


message 6: by Mathis (new)

Mathis I agree with Crystal! Nice synopsis.


message 7: by Silvana (new)

Silvana thank you all :)


message 8: by namurit (new)

namurit I actually laughed at myself out loud for thinking of Lost while reading the first few sentences and then you said it's not Lost. Thanks. I'm going to read this.

Haha, I know some people would have the same thoughts as you hence I wrote it :D

Happy reading, you'll love this book.

message 12: by JAE (new)

JAE I really like your review, couldn't agree more - this book was creepy! However, the story did seem a little bit slow for me at times.


message 13: by Silvana (new)

Silvana Thanks. Well, at least it was (I think) less than 250 pages :)


message 14: by Molly (new)

Molly If anyoneone is wondering, Golding wrote this after WWII, and based it on a possible WWIII apocalypse. Great review!


message 15: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Mosichuk yes... oh my gosh it was so weird and horrifying!


message 16: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Nielsen how was it horrifying? it was freaking boring! i thought they were all gonna end up eating each other or something. if you want to read horrifying, read the hunger games

Yes, I've read the Hunger Games trilogy. Not scary.
Lord of the Flies is a classic and I don't see THG will join its path.

But to each his/her own [taste], I guess :)


message 18: by Sharyl (new)

Sharyl Thanks for writing the great review. You've peaked my interest


message 19: by Chelsea (new)

Chelsea Koemm So true man cannot rule themselves successfully! Can't wait to read!


message 20: by Chris (new)

Chris Bumpas The Hunger Games is a joke compared to this book.


message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

A true test at what happens when rules are ignored and the mad rule the home


message 22: by George (new)

George Schneider A woman said to me once that this was a kids book.... smh .... oh how us humans can be


message 23: by Celine (new)

Celine Roelse It's in words!


message 24: by Garrett (new)

Garrett Great review . I think this shows how some people just can't get along and no matter what they have they resort to violence to take what they want


message 25: by Sam (new)

Sam I agree with your review. But do you think it's just a flaw in men, blood-lust and the hunger for power, that corrupts our society time and time again? Or do you think it's a flaw in everyone's nature? I'm just curious :)


message 26: by Garrett (new)

Garrett I say a it's human nature men or women just historical men have been in more position to abuse the power they been given and resort to violence to get what they want


message 27: by Silvana (new)

Silvana Agree with Garrett. All of us have that tendency, but the degree differ depending on life experience, social exposure and of course, situation.


message 28: by Holley (new)

Holley I really agree with your review! I just finished the book myself and greatly enjoyed it. I will say that I disagree that this isn't like Lost. While reading LOTF, I saw a lot of similarities between it and Lost.


message 29: by Natalya (new)

Natalya I already have it in my hands... Scared, but your review proved it something to try out.


message 30: by Zorawar (new)

Zorawar Not scary, but some scenes were truly horrifying. I'm vegetarian, and I'm talking about the scenes in which the pigs were killed. These scenes were the only reason I didn't watch the adaptations.


message 31: by Jayson (new)

Jayson I learned about this book when I read The Lucifer Effect by Dr. Phillip Zimbardo. Now, my interest was even more aroused after I saw your review. Thanks! I will find this book in the bookstore tomorrow.


message 32: by Tingting (new)

Tingting Would you think it would be too freaky for a 14 year old? I've always wanted to read this book, but I wanted to make sure it wouldn't scar for life.


message 33: by Silvana (new)

Silvana I think it is fine as long as afterward there is an adult who already read the book that can explain the context, just in case.


message 34: by Carissa (new)

Carissa Lusk Horrifying is the correct word! Do not finish this book as a night-time read, haha. It took me forever to get my mind settled to go to sleep.


message 35: by Silvana (new)

Silvana Yup, it is a different kind of scary. I think I'll still be horrified if I read it in broad daylight.


message 36: by Mabel (new)

Mabel I'm scared like hell too......I'd do anything to make William Golding change what happened to certain characters....I've just finished the book and I'm paralysed. It's haunting.


message 37: by Silvana (new)

Silvana Yes, that is why I never reread the book. Too scary.


message 38: by Henry (new)

Henry Avila Jules Verne would not be pleased but all writers steal from each other, Silvana.


message 39: by Silvana (new)

Silvana Aha, so the plot is similar with Verne's book you just read, right? I thought so too.


message 40: by Henry (new)

Henry Avila Except the Verne book the boys were friends the Golding one, not !


message 41: by Silvana (last edited May 24, 2015 03:41AM) (new)

Silvana I gotta read that book. It's been eons since my last Verne.
