Re: WANTED "LORD OF THE FLIES"

It's by William Golding. I read the book in high school, but want to read it again, it os great. It was published in 1954.

"It discusses how culture created by man fails and how man shall always turn to barbarism, using parallels of a group of school-boys stuck on a deserted island who unsuccessfully try to govern themselves and consequently have disastrous results." -Wikipedia

Basically they based "Kid Nation" off of it, but assuming the kids won't kill each other!

I had to read this book in high school also, I pretty much hated it!  But, the school loaned copies to us, so sorry I don't have it.  But, if you are a member of swaptree or interested in joining, they have plenty of copies for swap on there.

Maybe I hated it because I was forced to read it for school.

I was pleasantly surprised because it was assigned for school and I enjoyed it.
