So this time I decided to go with Lord of the flies! Just like The catcher in the rye, I read that someone that this book had fall vibes, so I picked it up! I only knew this book was about some boys stranded on an island.
Title: Lord of the flies.
Author: William Golding.
Genre: Young Adult, classic.
These chapters are quite long haha, 30 pages or something.
Okay so I expected to read about the plane crash first, or maybe even before the plane left. But we’re immediately on the island, without any background information? Maybe that will still come? Right now it is just very confusing.
So far I’m not liking any of the characters that we’ve met. Also not a huge fan of the writing.
I will go for a save prediction, and go for 3 stars!
I ended up rating this book 2 stars!
I really didn’t like this book. The characters were horrible, and definitely did not improve throughout the book. Didn’t like the plot, didn’t make any sense.
We didn’t get any background information, which was disappointing. I mean why where this group of boys together on the island? They didn’t know each other before hand, most of them at least.
The ending was very abrupt, and quite an easy way out I would say.
To be honest I have no idea why I’m rating this book two stars and not one. I can’t think of anything that I liked about this book..
Also why were there no girls at all? I guess this goes back to my no background point!
