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.

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

Mathis I agree with Crystal! Nice synopsis.

Jen 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.

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 :)

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 Sagar (new)

Sagar Bhatt 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.
