's review

really liked it

Written in 1954, This book could not be more real in this period of time. I remember watching Flight 29 as a kid and this has the same premise, Humans instinct for survival and thirst for power is universal and can be really dark, I was shocked by some events in the story but at the same time they were as realistic as possible, that just shows how shocking human beings can be.
It was excellent in many different ways, from the cover of the book to the title and the ending. I think it is a little bit underrated but it was right to be in lists as 100 books everyone should read and most influential books.

Tala Yaay!! :) Glad you enjoyed it!

Hamad I somehow agree that this represents "males" in a way or another but I was also wondering what would happen if it was a girl camp that stuck on the island.

Tala True, and same!

Reid Minnich You should write the book.

Hamad where?
