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).


  1. Yup - that was a creepy one! I'm a new follower now of your blog! :)

  2. Yes, it's interesting because although I remember strongly disliking the book when I was forced to read it in sophmore English, I have referred to and thought about it many times since then. I think of it as a great book of literature, as well as a thought-provoking book, even if it's not one of my favorites.

  3. Interesting and it does sounds creepy

  4. I have nominated you for a Liebster blog award. Congratulations on this honor! Please visit my blog for all of the details.

  5. Hello, Morgan! I always liked this book. It's sad, but the boys' relationships with each other individually and as a group is fascinating. I don't think I've seen the movie though. You're right that the book is usually always better anyway!!
