At the dawn of the next world war, a plane crashes on an uncharted island, stranding a group of schoolboys. At first, with no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate; this far from civilization the boys can do anything they want. Anything. They attempt to forge their own society, failing, however, in the face of terror, sin and evil. And as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins its reign, the hope of adventure seems as far from reality as the hope of being rescued. Labeled a parable, an allegory, a myth, a morality tale, a parody, a political treatise, even a vision of the apocalypse, Lord of the Flies is perhaps our most memorable novel about “the end of innocence, the darkness of man’s heart.”

  • Read the book, watch the movie

    By Edogami
    This book and Animal Farm and 1984 are allegorical fictions becoming non-fictions in real life right now!
  • Everyone should read this…again

    By The Deep Reader
    The messages in this classic are more pertinent for us today for the survival of humanity than even when it was written around WWII…
  • My dad made me read it

    By Silkpaw from Duskclan
    Very boring and confusing and oddly morbid (I have no problem with the morbid bit but why is it so boring like oh my god I wasted my whole day reading this)
