Book Review of Lord of the Flies by William Golding

To start this review I have to say that it starts off in a way that grabs your attention. Golding starts with describing the main area where the book mostly takes place. For the writing, the old English does make for a little bit of a challenge if you are not use to it.


In the plot of the book, Golding leaves you guessing the whole time on what way the book is going to go until the last few chapters. However, written well, the end does leave some to wonder what is going to happen if he had continued to write longer. That I feel was the only let down as I, myself, would have written another chapter to wrap up the story.


Within the book there are some scenes that Golding wrote in detail as they needed the extra describing. So, other than me wanting another chapter for the finish, this book was a good read.


I enjoy each part of the book and Golding did an amazing job on it. I would recommend this book for someone who is looking for a classic that has stood the test of time.


The next book that I am going to be reading is The Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice. This will most likely be the last Anne Rice book I will be reviewing for the blog.
