“Lord of the Flies is about a group of English boys who are stranded on an island. They were in a plane when it crashed on this uncharted island. They were happy at first, because there were no adult around to tell them what to do. They could do whatever they wanted.
But as they tried to survive on the island, things started getting out of hand. Some of the boys weren't following the set rules. Some started getting scared at night. What they thought was going to be a happy time, when they could do anything with no adult supervision, became a living nightmare.
Something I liked in this story was when the boys were working together to set up a living area. They elected a leader, set rules, tried hunting for food, and tried setting up homes. They also set up a fire on top of the mountain on the island, so that if a ship came by, it would see the smoke and rescue them.
I disliked when the boys started arguing and started taking sides. They fought, and eventually they made weapons and started killing each other. Some of the boys were killed, and things were getting really bad.
Something I liked about this book was when the boys all worked together to set up rules and work together. The leader made sure everyone was working together, and the hunters searched the island for food.
I also liked when Ralph, Jack, and Simon searched the mountain for the beast. The dialog in this part of the book was funny, and the way they looked around the mountain was interesting.
Something I didn't like about this book was when they started fighting. This part was very violent. In one part, they thought Simon was the beast, and they killed him. Jack hated Ralph, and Jack set up his own "fort" area where he and his group could live in safety from Ralph.”
