We have arrived!
The last book of the school year!
We will be reading William Golding's best seller, The Lord of the Flies. This novel has been the inspiration behind the tv show Survivor and Lost. It has also influenced quite a few songs by some famous singers and bands! What's it about you ask? The novel is set in 1940’s Europe in the midst of a fictional nuclear war. A plane carrying a group of British school boys being evacuated from England is mistaken for a military craft and shot down. The plane crash lands on an uninhabited island with only the boys (no adults) as sole survivors. The novel is the story of the boys’ attempts to form a society and govern themselves; a descent into chaos, disorder, and evil.
Open your hearts and minds...it is a great read!
