Lord Of The Flies

I just got done rereading it. And there is no denying the novel's sheer power to draw anyone in. I mean who hasn't fantasized about casting off the chains of civilization and fleeing to a remote island? Golding's triumph is his ability to remind us, that the core of human nature is dark and inescapable. Wherever you go, there it is.
