Review

"Lord of the Flies, a grim parable that holds out precious little hope for humanity...is the most influential novel among U.S. undergraduates since Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye... The British schoolboys in Lord of the Flies are a few years younger than Salinger's Holden Caulfield--they are six to twelve--but are not self-pitying innocents in a world made miserable by adults. They create their own world, their own misery..."

""Lord of the Flies" is one of my favorite books. That was a big influence on me as a teenager, I still read it every couple of years."
--Suzanne Collins, author of "The Hunger Games"
"As exciting, relevant, and thought-provoking now as it was when Golding published it in 1954."
--"Stephen King"
"The most influential novel...since Salinger's "Catcher in the Rye.""
--Time
"This brilliant work is a frightening parody on man's return (in a few weeks) to that state of darkness from which it took him thousands of years to emerge. Fully to succeed, a fantasy must approach very close to reality. "Lord of the Flies" does. It must also be superbly written. It is."
--The New York Times Book Review
"Sparely and elegantly written..."Lord of the Flies" is a grim anti-pastoral in which adults are disguised as children who replicate the worst of their elders' heritage of ignorance, violence, and warfare."
--Joyce Carol Oates, New York Review of Books
