Michael Peake I'm almost finished and have really enjoyed it. It's a bit of a slow start, and I think a lot of people dislike how little insight you get into each character, but that's because the story is more about the situation (schoolboys stranded on a deserted island) and how that affects the characters. Some of the prose is a bit overly verbose too, but overall it's an excellent book (imo). The power struggle that develops on the island and the division that results from it is really compelling.
Plus, it's not an especially long book. If you're not sure, give it a go.
