Blogging A to Z- "L"
L is for Lord of the Flies. I read this book in sophomore english, and let's just say that the only word that I can think of to describe it properly is "interesting". This is a book about 4 boys who are stranded on a deserted island. They must live on their own and develop their own 'society' on the island. They try to do this, but it fails. Essentially, the boys go from a team to a group of savage beasts. Just to warn you, there are a few morbid scenes, especially towards the end.
I've seen the movie of this story, but as us book nerds know, the book is always better than the movie! ;) The movie was in black and white, which was a big reason why I have this opinion. Also, the characters didn't enunciate very well, so it was hard to understand what they were saying ( or trying to say).
