The novel Lord of the Flies is such a classic. I read it my freshman year and while the novel to me was shocking, I couldn’t stop reading it. The characters themselves such as Piggy, Jack, and Ralph seem so real. Golding did an amazing job of making the story feel authentic. Even though Lord of the Flies is a rather dark book, it’s a read that’s meaningful and important. It’s a very dramatic novel and yet even though the characters are children, I found myself at times forgetting that because of the situation they were thrown in. I would recommend reading this book since the moral of the story is an important one.
