Lord of the Flies
BlurbA plane crashes on a desert island and the only survivors, a group of schoolboys, assemble on the beach and wait to be rescued. By day they inhabit a land of bright fantastic birds and dark blue seas, but at night their dreams are haunted by the image of a terrifying beast. As the boys' delicate sense of order fades, so their childish dreams are transformed into something more primitive, and their behaviour starts to take on a murderous, savage significance. First published in 1954, Lord of the Flies is one of the most celebrated and widely read of modern classics.

Brilliant story but the ending left me a bit dry.

Spellbinding and thoroughly terrifying. Young humans, left to their own devices and without social conventions, will be led to thoughts and behaviors they had never imagined.
