Demisty Bellinger I agree that Lord of the Flies is for a young audience; I read it first for an optional lit class in eighth grade and it seemed a perfect book for the age. As for it not being a classic, I'm not sure if I agree with you. But as is the case with many of my arguments of late (I don't have the time to think about it thoroughly!), I can't exactly say why. My pat argument for classics is if the work is relevant today. I'd have to say that this one is.

Still, nicely put! And thanks for reminding me, again, about this book.

Harley Being a teen reader, let me just say that this book has got to be one of the most boring books i've been forced to read. As for the obvious symbolism being a favorite among teachers. . .yeah I can see how that would make sense. Unfortunately for me, everything being so blatantly out there just made it all the more boring for me to read. I get what the book is saying, but at the same time, is this not a common sense statement that Golding is trying to use as his "message".
