“William Golding’s Lord of the Flies is a dystopian classic: exciting, relevant and thought-provoking.” Stephen King.
When a group of schoolboys are stranded on a desert island, what could go wrong?
A plane crashes on a desert island. The only survivors are a group of schoolboys. By day, they discover fantastic wildlife and dazzling beaches, learning to survive; at night, they are haunted by nightmares of a primitive beast. Orphaned by society, it isn’t long before their innocent childhood games devolve into a savage, murderous hunt …
‘Stands out mightily in my memory … Such a strong statement about the human heart.’
‘Terrifying and haunting.’
‘Beautifully written, tragic and provocative.’
