Lord of the Flies Book Review

 Lord of the Flies by William Golding


 Lord of the flies by William Golding is a fictional novel about boys trying to survive on an island after the plane that they were on crashed. In the novel the boys are alone with no adults to keep them under control. In the novel by William Golding the boys have to run the island by themselves. Teenage boys running an island by themselves can lead to many problems and in the novel like expected it did. In the novel the boys struggle for power, all of the boys want to be in control of the island. One of the boys called Piggy finds a shell that the boys call a conch. The conch is very important and is used as a symbol of power and authority. Throughout the novel the boys fight, kill each other, struggle for power and hunt.
 The author’s style of writing was not hard to understand, but it was not easy to understand. The author of Lord of the flies wrote using details, but the writing was not too hard to understand. I actually really liked the author of the novels style of writing. I thought that the novel was very well written. I think it would be helpful for a teen to really get an idea of how hard it would be to live on an island with kids your age, with no adult and having to find food on your own, struggle for power, and also build shelters. These poor boys did not know when or if they ever would be rescued.  I thought that Lord of the flies by William Golding was a very good and interesting novel. I would recommend that every teen reads this novel because it really has a powerful message. I would give Lord of the flies by William Golding a rating of 5 stars out of 5 stars because I thought that it was a great novel.  Nicole S.; Teen Reviewer
