We are right now reading William Golding’s classic adventure book Lord of The Flies in school. I was surprised, it is truly interesting. All along the reading, I try to think myself into the situation. Off course, this isn’t easy at all since it is a difference of about three years; I am almost fifteen, and they are at most twelve. Allthought, I guess I would be the one to help Simon and Ralph building up a more or less advanced camp, even though others are enjoying themself in the sun. I really think I would have the power to work hard so that I would survive easier later on.
The plot: Lord of The Flies is set in the time of the war. A gang of schoolkids, between six and twelve years old are travelling in an airplane which is shot down by enemy troops. They suddenly are stranded on a desert island, and without any adults nearby, the children creates their own society with laws and special professionals.
If you haven’t read the book yet: please, give it a try and you won’t regreat it.
