Lord of the Flies
Lord of the Flies: New Educational Edition | William Golding
A plane crashes on a desert island and the only survivors, a group of schoolboys, assemble on the beach and wait to be rescued. By day they inhabit a land of bright fantastic birds and dark blue seas, but at night their dreams are haunted by the image of a terrifying beast. As the boys' delicate sense of order fades, so their childish dreams are transformed into something more primitive, and their behaviour starts to take on a murderous, savage significance.First published in 1954, Lord of the Flies is one of the most celebrated and widely read of modern classics. Now fully revised and updated, this educational edition includes chapter summaries, comprehension questions, discussion points, classroom activities, a biographical profile of Golding, historical context relevant to the novel and an essay on Lord of the Flies by William Golding entitled 'Fable'. Aimed at Key Stage 3 and 4 students, it also includes a section on literary theory for advanced or A-level students. The educational edition encourages original and independent thinking while guiding the student through the text - ideal for use in the classroom and at home.

What happens when a group of young boys find themselves alone and stranded on a deserted island? How do they organise themselves without any adults? Can the innocence of childhood turn into pure violence?

A highly recommended read for any age and a dream of mine to do a theatre adaptation at school. What do you say @Sharv_Sona @Lovelylottereader and @AnnaSummer7 ?

Sharv_Sona This book had been on TBR for so long! I might read it soon! And about the play, I‘ll see if the student council can help, as we were generally planning a play, but don‘t hold your breath. :) 2w
Reyzl I love it and have read it twice! I also have the playscript and I was planning to do the play with 3B, in our first unit, but time did not allow. Let‘s talk at school with the other readers and we may get good ideas☺️ 2w

I must say this book kept shocking me, as it went on. Whether it contains the true nature of humankind or not, it makes a great story. It is interesting how different the characters respond to fear and uncertainty, which is something very real. Knowing that Golding had difficulties with his role in the war that just ended, lets us understand the plot better.
Nevertheless, even without all that, it's still a nice story. Would recommend!

#FallTreasures Where to build the #Bonfire, and how to keep it going, are just a few of the things that Jack, Ralph, Piggy, and the other boys argue about.

The pig slaughter and the rawness of human emotions in this classic book haunted me. The existence of violence and assertion of power in some of the characters young heads bothered me. I had to pause reading several times, very vivid writing.

Palimpsest I read it as a sophomore in high school and the only good thing I learned from this book was symbolism in novels by using names. I absolutely hate this book. We watched the film too.

GingerAntics I love that book. It‘s an interesting look at what adults think kids are like (little tiny greedy, messed up adults). Never mind science says life would be very different if we put the kids in charge, but whatever. I liked the adventure of it, and I‘m still trying to figure out how they picked up a conch shell and could blow it like a horn with no practice, help, or instruction. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 3mo

Why would they make kids read this in school? I‘ve been trying to read this book since early March. 100 pages in and I can‘t be asked to invest any more time to find out what these little pissants end up doing to Piggy. Bitch, bye. I‘m bailing.

Kris10H That is a stunning cover! 8mo
marleed I read this in 7th grade. It was well before VCR‘s and we didn‘t even have cable so it was easily the most shocking thing I ever read. If my dad (single parent) knew I was reading it or it‘s impact, we might have read together. As it was - I was on my own - and gutted. ...In fact, sneaking The Exorcist a few months later for an overnight read was easy in comparison! 8mo

I found it quite difficult to work out which of the characters was talking sometimes, so it was a little frustrating to read. However, the character of Piggy made up for any disappointments...what a cutie!

Sad at the end when it hits home that the islanders are just lost, scared and homesick kids. But some do commit murder!

Not the best book I've read but a nice short descriptive read.

I am constantly in awe (not positive) at what we assign children to read in school. The book is slow to start, the kids are weird. Why they are so fascinated by making rules and cleaning them selves up... What a different time this was. Then throw in the violence. What an interesting ride.
I do find it annoying, the author writes he couldn't write the story with girls because....

ChaoticMissAdventures You cannot have an island with boys and girls because that brings sex onto it. The children are as young as 6! What a lame and weird excuse. 12mo

I‘ve always been an avid reader, but I always hated the books we were made to read in school. I was ahead in my reading level, so I always felt like the books were too easy, too boring, or sometimes I‘d already read them. Lord of the Flies hooked me from the beginning. The teacher lead open, in-depth discussions and the other students actually participated for once. I love this book so, SO much, it‘s one of the few I will reread.

I was helping my kid with his homework. He was studying Lord of the Flies and the Canadian government. I said, “I really liked that book. I didn‘t know you were reading it.” To which he replied, “Oh, we aren‘t reading it. We watched the movie.” The. Movie. I‘m now building him some stacks from my shelves, for reading at home. Because... the movie... really?

I couldn‘t find my copy of Lord of the Flies, the book the brewpub garlic fries seasoning blend is named after, but the soup more than makes up for that—it was so good I practically licked the bowl. 😋This is the 2nd recipie that I developed for #BlendsBash2020 a blogging event for.@BookClubCookbook & their pun-named book, song & TV blends.

A disturbing story about a group of boys stranded on an island. After reading the first half of The Lucifer Effect (tagged in comments) the most startling thing about these feral boys is how close Golding‘s novel gets to reality. #bannedbooksweek

A plane crash on an uninhabited island, a group of children, fun, frolics, sunshine, then a power struggle and an ominous change to savage behaviour. For a small book (less than 200 pages) this tale packs in an awful lot. The writing style is a bit strange for me but the story is intriguing and kept my interest for the couple of hours it took to read it ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I bought this years ago to read along with my high schooler. Wow, Golding really had low expectations of kids.... I would hope that this really wouldn‘t happen. So sad. The only reason I would recommend this to anyone is so they know what their kids are reading in school, its quite brutal. I hope some really good discussions came from it in class. I choose to believe humanity is NOT this disgusting.

LibrarianRyan I find it interesting that modern school read this and To Kill a mocking bird in HS. I read both of these in MS. i know it varies by school district but I still find it interesting. 1y
KendylChamberlain @LibrarianRyan interesting, I am 51, never read either of those in MS or HS. My kids go to a private school and their reading is really diverse for assignments and hopefully provoking thought. We are in Cali.... 1y

I liked this more than I thought I would.

Except the ending. I hated it. I'll put those thoughts in a spoiler comment.

Pretty much every character was unlikable, but I think that's the point. And everyone has heard how disturbing it is. But the writing. Wow. I'm not sure when I've read more descriptive writing. I see why this is a school standard. (It was required summer reading for my 15yo, & I decided to read it with her.)

⭐⭐⭐/⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

mom2bugnbee What. The. Heck. With. That. Ending. So abrupt. And does it make me sound terrible that I didn't want them to be rescued? I think it would have been much more interesting if they hadn't. Leave it open if you want, but it just seemed like the easy way out. 1y
heikemarie Oh man, this book. I felt like they HAD to be rescued. After the depths of descent the characters experience and all they sacrifice and lose I thought it poetic that this is undercut by rescue, rendering much of it meaningless. 1y

mom2bugnbee @KathyWheeler Update - I have 50 pages left & I am enthralled. I hate all of the characters (except maybe the twins) & I'm not sure that I love the plot... But, wow! The writing! The use of words! Now I see why this is studied in school. Amazing command of the English language. So descriptive. 1y
KathyWheeler @mom2bugnbee it had been on my TBR forever. I may have been supposed to read it in school but didn‘t do it. I finally read it a couple of years ago and really liked it. No one is likeable, but I think that‘s part of the point. (edited) 1y
