Beschreibung

Before The Hunger Games there was Lord of the Flies Lord of the Flies remains as provocative today as when it was first published in 1954, igniting passionate debate with its startling, brutal portrait of human nature. Though critically acclaimed, it was largely ignored upon its initial publication. Yet soon it became a cult favorite among both students and literary critics who compared it to J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye in its influence on modern thought and literature. William Golding's compelling story about a group of very ordinary small boys marooned on a coral island has become a modern classic. At first it seems as though it is all going to be great fun; but the fun before long becomes furious and life on the island turns into a nightmare of panic and death. As ordinary standards of behaviour collapse, the whole world the boys know collapses with them—the world of cricket and homework and adventure stories—and another world is revealed beneath, primitive and terrible.Labeled a parable, an allegory, a myth, a morality tale, a parody, a political treatise, even a vision of the apocalypse, Lord of the Flies has established itself as a true classic.

"Lord of the Flies is one of my favorite books. That was a big influence on me as a teenager, I still read it every couple of years." —Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games "As exciting, relevant, and thought-provoking now as it was when Golding published it in 1954." —Stephen King

Born in Cornwall, England, in 1911 and educated at Oxford University, William Gerald Golding's first book, Poems, was published in 1935. Following a stint in the Royal Navy and other diversions during and after World War II, Golding wrote Lord of the Flies while teaching school. This was the first of several novels including Pincher Martin, Free Fall, and The Inheritors and a play, The Brass Butterfly, which led to his being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1983.

Ein Buch, welches man gelesen haben muss

Nicht umsonst wird das Buch in vielen amerikanischen Schulen als Pflichtlektüre angesehen. Die Schicksale des Vaters von Scout, sowie der kindlichen Gedankenweise von Scout machen das Buch sehr schön zu lesen und amüsant. Klare Leseempfehlung meinerseits! :)

Chapeau Harper Lee!

Amazing classic book which takes a total new approach (at least for me): it tells the story out of the eyes of a little girl from primary school. It is refreshing, never boring, every single page is impressive and fun! And the people in it, especially the kids and his father, are really awesome characters. Especially like the girl and her "husband", a young boy with tons of imagination. Learned a lot.
